La corona

We gunned it back to Durango on the main highway so I could get my crown installed that night as Doctor Silva had generously offered to do it that Sunday evening. Yeah, I know, getting a crown put in on a Sunday night in Mexico? Who’d have thought? Anyway it happened and a big thanks to Doctor Silva and Stephen for making it happen.

On the way back, about 30 miles outside of Zacatecas, we saw a handful of semi’s parked on the side of the highway with just a half built, smoky, unmarked concrete house close by. Smoke was rising out from the hut and I could smell the wood burning. Even though there were no signs, all my food senses told me this was our lunch stop. As I pull up to park, a truck driver asks me if I’ve come for the food. Best food from here to Durango he tells me, and says you’ve got to try the nopales. After a little more small talk, Dave and I thank him as we dismount our bikes and head into the unmarked house. What we encountered was a real treat. Vegetable dishes. Lots and lots of vegetable dishes in various colorful cauldrons. There was a cactus dish (as recommended by the trucker), a cauliflower dish, a green bean dish, a spinach dish, a squash and zucchini dish, a cabbage dish, and an eggplant dish, along with some protein dishes as well. There’s definitely a lack of greens in most northern Mexican cuisine so this assortment of vegetable stews was a real delight. …and they were all delicious. Here’s some pics.
