Chips and Salsa, oh my!
The tourist map also lists local eating establishments. Under
"International Cuisine" they list the fine Scottish fare of
McDonalds, and, wonder of wonders - a Mexican restaurant!
One problem with being away from Texas for a while is going into
Mexican food withdrawal. We have searched out the elusive enchilada
from Paris to Melbourne to Amsterdam, and at best have found but a poor
imitation of the real Tex-Mex. But we've been on the road for 12
days and are getting desperate.
Hacienda Mexicana is a short walk from the hotel. Despite the sign
advertising German beer, we're excited. We enter and the first thing
we see is a big bowl of chips. Yes!
The waitress doesn't speak English, so the owner and his wife come out to
visit. His aunt lives in San Antonio. Small world. Our
meal is the best Mexican food we've had outside the U.S. and does help to
staunch the cravings.
