the last day of the year and what a treat...
we went to this little truck stop restaurant up the road with the promise of percebes which i had never heard of,
but when we ordered them we were told there were none available
we ordered fish tacos and octopus and shrimp but just as the tacos arrive
i see these fisherman down below,
walking up the rocks with buckets,
john, who after 20+ years (on & off) in mexico still does not speak spanish,
jumps up and goes to meet them in the parking lot...
i guess pretty much everyone who reads this blog knows what a food freak i am
and to try something i've never had before, especially sea food, is my idea of heaven
and the weirder the better
(remember the monkfish liver?)
these were a real treat,
very similar in taste and texture to steamers
(as john says)
