We all knew it was coming right? Of course I’m gonna use this opportunity to show you all my mouthwatering treats in Cabo during a What I ate Wednesday.
The theme this month is apparently Summer Staples, but unfortunately I have no time for that. All I have time for is showing you intake of food that was consumed during our trip down south. You will forgive me right?
Alright let’s get on with it.
I thought a lot about how to organize all this (because beleive me, its a lot…) but I thought it would be best just to organize by breakfast, lunch and dinner and try to make it all make sense. It’ s a tall order, but I am up for the challenge.
We had breakfast every day at the hotel buffet. It had everything we could think of or want and it was so big we never had to wait. The only drawback of course is that my eyes are always bigger than my stomach and there is SO MUCH good stuff that it was hard resist all the good stuff you pass by. Pretty much every day lots of food was left on my plate, but I was still totally stuffed!
The chocolate croissants were soo soo good. I only had two, but REALLY wanted to get one every singe morning.
They had big bucket/jars of chocolate sauce/peanut butter/carmel sauce/NUTELLA. Uh.Mase.Ing.
We had eggs in some form most every morning. Mostly fried and one morning we tried out an omelette. I tried the bacon and sausage but wasn’t a huge fan of either, so got them once and not really again. TONS of fruit which I had a good helping of most mornings.
They also had a huge display of meats and cheeses as well as jello’s, yogurts and all sorts of other things.
Lots of cereal choices and a smoothie bar!
We had coffee every morning (of course) until we found the cappuccino machine and then we got that. It was so good!
Couple of questions about some things I saw that I wasnt sure what they were. Any thoughts?
They served lunch/snacks in the area right between both of the pools so it was super convenient. It was buffet style and they had a great variety of things to try. Hamburgers, Pizza, mexican food, lots of chips and guacamoe and pico de gallo, meats and cheeses etc…
Every day we tried different things, the chips and guac were something we pretty much had for lunch every day. No complaints here!
This is where it gets kind of complicated
For dinner, you could either go to one of the specialty restaurants or the buffet. Or you could go into town of course. We ate at the resort every night because hey its all included AND they had lots of good choices. There was a Japanese place, Steakhouse, Mexican restaurant and another restaurant called Kristal.
We went to the Japanese place first because you didn’t need reservations and all the other places did. We thought that since you didn’t need reservations it might not be very good, but we actually found it to be our favorite place. There was also a big hole in the ceiling!
They give you a sushi board to begin with which was ok, and then there are appetizers, the meal and then desert.
The appetizer was tempura and a “pasta” dish. They called it pasta anyway. Both very tasty
The steak dish was my favorite thing I ate the entire trip. Pauls salmon was also amazing. Desert was fried ice cream (see below)
The next night was the steak house. We had high hopes but were kind of disappointed. The steaks were not near as good as the steak at the Japanese place. Still a decent meal.
Next was the Mexican restaurant. It was probably my second favorite except the waitress was all flirty flirty with Paul. She said “And for you handsome guy?” when she took his order. I tell Paul all the time what a cutie he is but he never believes me!
I had fajitas and Paul had some sort of chicken, they were both muy fantastico
Our final night, we headed back to the Japanese place. I wish we had one more night there because we would have eaten there one more time. This time we BOTH got the steak. Smart move Paul, smart move.
Could we have eaten more cones? Probably! They had a soft serve machine in the lunch buffet area so we helped ourselves to many a chocolate cone.
This was our desert at the Mexican restaurant. Mine was flan with ice cream and Pauls was some sort of sweet potato pie with ice cream. They were alright.
This fried ice cream was BY FAR our favorite. Part of the reason we went back to the Japanese place again. If we could have had it every night for desert we would have
This was an all inclusive trip so we were able to try whatever we wanted without worrying about he cost. We aren’t huge drinkers so even though it may look like it, we did not really drink all that much, but we did try a lot of them just to see what we liked.
Our favorite were the Sunrises which are the reddish ones near the bottom.
I’d say we did a pretty good job putting it away didn’t we?
Out of everything we had, what do you think your favorite thing would have been?
Do you think Paul is a handsome guy? (Don’t worry I won’t try to throw blows if you say yes, I know he’s MINE)
On a side note the other night we met some friends for dinner and as we were going back to the car a crazy street lady at the corner of the block where our car was saw Paul and then she looked at me and said, “Girl, is that yo man?!” I said yes and she said, “Guuuurl you got some good taste. I aint even mad at’cha.” It was so funny! He was so embarrassed.
