Mendoza Week 15

Fresh Fruits and Veggies a real addicition

The time pass extremely fast in the beautiful city of Mendoza, small and enjoyable place to be.
I have a lot of addictions and it’s not only the great wine of Mendoza, but the food, I have a lot of favorite, the citruses, strawberries, cherries, fresh green peas, walnuts, the fresh fruits and veggies are a real addiction the savors are amazing, not sure if it’s because of the extremely dry climate,  6 to 10% humidity or the soil! The cost is great too, one of my favorite is the black cherries at 35 pesos per kg, I cannot get enough of it. 

Amazing Strawberries

My favorite nuts, love the fresh walnuts.

Black cherries, a real addiction for 35 pesos per kg.

I am also trying different cut of meat, this week I bought lomo “beef tenderloin” for 99 pesos per kg and it was like everything else very tasty, I also like the big brown meaty eggs.

Red meat once and a while, beef tenderloin at 99 pesos per kg.

I wander around this week down to the two south Plaza, Plaza Italiana and Plaza Espana, scroll around taking the time to appreciate where I was, a relaxing week.

I also scroll into San Martin Park, it was kind of funny to see the food trucks, funny as they are labelled in English “Mendoza food Trucks”.

There is a lot of new vehicles on the street, beautiful cars and SUV, but also very old vehicles, people keep them till the fall apart, car do not devaluated fast here, and for most people it’s a great investment.

A real peace of scrap

Kept by his owner not sure why

Vehicles are an  investment!

Travel bus,

Thursday night we went out for a Thanksgiving Diner at one of the most Popular American Club in Mendoza “Black Sheep”, our friend Chef Angelo cooked 9 turkeys for the occasion, and instead of using cranberry he used fresh cherries, it was great, great food great atmosphere great friends, and it felt good to have a traditional North American Meal. The cost for Marc and I, including a litro of beer and a great bottle of Malbec, diners plus the cab, 265 pesos!
