I got lost again wandering around Centro looking for a bookstore. According to my mesero, Fernando Jimenez, I'm only a block away from the bookstores de la cultura Mexicana, so after (if!) I finish eating this Molcajete Mixto, a huge bowl carved of volcanic rock and filled with all kinds of meat, plus nopales and cebollas, I'll go looking for the book my new friend wants me to read. I can't remember exactly the name of the book or the author, but it's something like Ojos del Perro Azul (blue eyes of the dog) by a guy named Marquez. Anyway, if you stray into Colonia Obrera as I did, look for Los Molcajetes at 160 Isabel la Catolica. Don't order for just one person unless you have a huge appetite. There's enough food for 3 or 4 people for MX$90; it's about the same amount of food as 20 of the 7 peso tacos, so for a group it can be a big money saver. And the service is friendly and fast.
