Are We There Yet?

Our destination was ultimately in Bahia de Kino, but somehow, lunch got in the way.  This beautiful restaurant wasn't actually open for business yet, but the arrival of our group changed that quickly.  The staff hurried to pull together some tables for our group and we scanned the menu as our tummies growled.
Feeling somewhat elated with the successful passage around the main town of Hermosillo, we were happy to take a break from the driving and just relax.  The food was delightful.  DannyLee enjoyed a chicken steak with mango sauce while I opted for the chicken with tamarind sauce.  More thoughts and memories of Thailand and the joy of tropical fruits came to mind.  The best part of the meal was the warm soft tortillas that none of us could resist.  YUM!
This is the fire pit where all of the meats are slow-roasted next to a mesquite fire. 







This is the main entrance of the restaurant.  I confess that I didn't actually figure out the name of the place.  I can tell you that it was on Hwy. 80 just west of Hermosillo.
