The here and now... and what and why

Complacency is a trap. At least that’s what I was thinking when I up and left the comfort of a Yankee prep school gig, where I taught music, amongst other things, for 28 years. There was also that life long career as a composer, musician and artist.

First, it was a year in St. Thomas, USVI, working as a reporter and shooting photography and then, a year in San Agustin Etla, Oaxaca, Mexico.
Time passed.
More time passed and a year back in the Athens of America followed by a hasty return to Oaxaca where it is all happening.
A couple of years in San Sebastian Etla and now, just down the road in San Pablo Etla. Life is good.

Oaxaca Sabe - Oaxaca knows..... food!... Day 5 - Tres Bistro

Whew!  This is such fun, but we actually contemplated taking a day off from all this fine food after this meal.  Then, we quickly came to our senses.  Just keep them coming....  
Yesterday, it was Tres Bistro which overlooks the west side of the zocalo.  
We had a table right in the center window.  
It does not get any better than that.  
And here is the menu.  We have this down now, so when there is a choice we each get what the other does not.  Here is sister blogger Shannon's meal.  My meal was sublime and once again, the service and presentation were impeccable.

 Crema de poro y papa con jamón serrano (leek and potato with serrano ham)
Roast beef con salsa remoulade y cebolla rellena a la provenzal
Strudel de plátano con salsa de brandy y café.
You can tell from the photos that it all tasted wonderful. Really, everything was so good.  Roast beef is a rarity here, at least for me, and this was so tender and tasty that it satisfied that empty niche in my diet that I miss..... not that I am complaining.  Eating fresh and healthy food here is so easy, but every now and then it is nice to have something different.  Not a tortilla in sight..... but a wonderful meal and glorious setting.
