Travel Diary #2

 Hi everyone!

I’m glad to be back, I’ve had some crazy couple of weeks and just got back from Mexico City! (I’ll post that in a couple of days).

This is the second and last part of my trip to Monterrey, Mexico.

This crepes called KEPACREPA are delicious and my favorite one (as always) is the banana- nutella!

    

La Postreria 77, is one of my new favorite places. I’ve heard a lot of it on Facebook and my mom told me about it. I had some chilaquiles which were pretty tasty and a corn bread slice. The corn bread was my favorite thing besides the atmosphere! Had such a great time with my mom and aunt. I almost forgot, the Chai Tea was one of the best ones I’ve ever tasted.

  

The Nada is a cool coffee shop, from the outside seems like any other house but behind their red door you can find a lot of cool details. Every room has couches, coffee tables and even rugs with accent pillows so you can sit on them and have a great time. They created a good atmosphere and have tasty food. Check it out!

      

Bread is another cute little place to give a try! Their muffins are awesome I had the mango one and my brother the one with blueberry (SO tasty). The coffee in the picture is from La Nacional which is located next to them.

I noticed that in Monterrey are a bunch of new coffee shops and little restaurants (which I love) that are worth trying.

Hope you enjoy this post and thanks for reading us!

Hi everyone, it’s been so long since our last post but we are so happy to be back!

Three weeks ago I went to Monterrey, Mexico; for the first time since I got married. It was so exciting to be back, I missed my family and friends so much.  I also missed Mexican food, so bad! Lol.  As you can see on my pictures there is a lot of food, and I enjoyed it as much as I could.

I love corn and this was the first thing that I had,  Farmville was a great choice!

I ate fish two days in a row and it was really good! I enjoyed it even more because I went with my mom.

This place called “Las tapas de arriba” is awesome, loved the decoration and their coffee.  It is perfect to get some homework done or a relaxed evening with friends. If you are from Monterrey or planning on visiting you should give it a try.

This new place called “Llena tu loko”  is so different to anything I’ve ever tasted. There are more than 100 things you can put on your cup and top it off with chamoy, that makes it extra spicy and crazy!

I also visited my grandparents and enjoyed it a lot; my grandma is always prepared to receive us with cinnamon tea,  freshly baked bread, and coffee (for my dad). I am so blessed to have them.

This “quesadilla” was awesome, it had cheese and chicken. It was so good that I can’t even describe it! My dad also visited, we enjoyed this breakfast so much and later that day we went to a baseball game.

This is the first part of my trip and I am excited to show you more pictures. If you want to visit Mexico I totally recommend Monterrey; it is a beautiful city, has really cute coffee shops, and delicious food.

Thanks for reading us,
