Our last salad together in the airport before telling each other “See you next trip!”
Our light healthy salads for a lunch in one of the restaurants of Playa del Carmen.
This is our vegetarian dinner at the restaurant la Creole: the pumpkin soup, the hummus with vegetables and the salad :)
We finished exploring Merida for the day with a light lunch in the restaurant called “Bebidas” that is located close to the Main Square.
Lunch time! Yummy spinach-pear salad.
This happened to be an enormous meal!
Well, after shopping we were hungry, but we thought we would just split a simple salad and some grilled vegetables. And if Clinton needed more, we should just order a side of tacos. And, we thought, if we needed more taste to it, we should also order some cheese. That’s it. Seemed about perfect order. But! We could not expect that besides ordered dishes they would bring up a large portion of appetizers (a lot of vegetables and fresh warm home-made yummy bread) that we were snacking on before an order came. Overall it turned to be a lot of food! But mostly vegetables, so it was good. The place serves a mexican cuisine, is called “Syran Grupo Estoril” and is located in the upper floor of the mall
Light healthy lunch! We ordered two salads with salmon. Yum!
We finally tried Mexican cuisine from a local restaurant (that serves not international but mexican style meals)! It was in a place called “Ten Ten Pie” where we enjoyed tacos and a salad for our lunch :)
When we travel somewhere for the first time, we are always anxious about our upcoming meals. As real foodies, we hope to have a good options for us, otherwise, we might stay unsatisfied about the visited country.
For our first lunch in Mexico City we choose the restaurant called “Amimanera” that is located in a great spot overviewing Zocalo, formally known as Plaza de la Constitucion (huge public plaza in the heart of Mexico City, with most of the major attractions lying close by). We ordered salads and, luckily, stayed absolutely happy about our light simple lunch and the view that we enjoyed from the second flour of the restaurant :)
Our last dinner in Buenos Aires (the night we came back form Mar del Plata to Buenos Aires) happened to be our last dinner in Argentina.
Spending the last night in the Nuss Hotel
, we were ready to leave a beautiful country the following day.
Surprisingly, it was not easy to find a place where to eat in Mar del Plata. We either could not find any, or those restaurants did not fit to our peculiar tastes. ”La Fonte D’Oro” though was the cafe where we found quite good options to eat with the variety of fresh and tasted salads. We liked food there and the service was good and fast (what is nice because the cafeteria was very busy most of the time).
Stop for a healthy lunch in Buenos Aires :)
Oh, I remember this terrible travel experience! Arriving to the airport much earlier before our flight back to Buenos Aires, we had at least an hour to spent there. It would not be a problem if our flight would not be delayed for more then another hour… Seemed we missed our dinner time in Buenos Aires… And as far as we did not have lunch before we left Iguazu Falls we had to eat at the airport cafe. What could foodies like us order there? This was the best option: the salad and the toasts. Well, it turned to be too boring, too plain and too far behind our expectations and hope. But we ate it anyway. It is better then starving.
Such experiences teach us more and more to appreciate and to really enjoy gourmet meals made of fresh, good quality products.
On the way home, we made a special stop for having a dinner in the vegetarian restaurant “La Vegetariano”. It provides only healthy and vegetarian options and the menu is daily pre-fixe. We were very excited to have a wonderful healthy meal. The atmosphere was charming and we loved the interior.
Once we were given our meals, we were disappointed. Yes, it was healthy, but it was too plain lacking a lot of flavors. We believe (and I would tell we know) that with vegetarian meal you still can be creative with giving it a lot of tasty flavor, serving it in a beautiful way and still keeping all the nutrients and health.
Overall we enjoyed this experience but unfortunately we did not love the meal…
