Hanging out at Albaricoque (aka Memo's place) in Mexicali
This summer I took the time to drive out across the border to Mexicali with another knifeknut to see Memo (memorael) at his new restaurant. I won't say much other than the food was fantastic, as was the company, cooks and chefs, included. If you ever find yourself anywhere near Mexicali, I highly recommend taking some time to check out this little jewel. Memo was an excellent host and I think we tried everything on the menu between the two visits (I'm sure we missed something here and there since the menu changed a bit between the two visits.) Here are a few pics of visit number one. By the way, Baja red wine is worth checking out. The bottles we opened were all very nice. BTW, I don't even like raw shellfish, in general but I think I'd drive back just to get some more of these.
