DAY 6 Tuesday, June 12

I woke up at the crack of dawn this morning. The golf cart wasn’t due in until 9am, so I decided to drive along the coast to watch the sunrise. Randall was awake and sitting in the courtyard when I stepped out, so he went with me.

What a peaceful time of day. We made our way over to the coast, and stopped to enjoy the cool breeze and watch the sunrise:

We drove through the Colonias and up along the bay side back to our hotel. I napped for about an hour before returning the golf cart.

It was hot and sunny now – a perfect day to do nothing but lounge on the beach. Stefan, Randall, and I headed over to Chi Chi’s on North Beach after grabbing a quick breakfast at Café Cito. Brandon and Amanda would meet us a little later on.

None of us remembered to bring our cameras, but we spent the day doing a lot of nothing, which consisted of napping on lounge chairs, taking swimming breaks, and drinking a few 2X1 Pina Coladas and beers. It was lovely. :)

We headed back to the hotel around 5:30 or so, showered, and relaxed for a couple of hours. We forgot to eat lunch, so we were ready for dinner!

We had been eyeing La Malquerida since we arrived and decided to try it tonight. It was around the corner from our hotel, on Hidalgo at Matamoros.

I can’t believe I haven’t heard more about this place. The artwork, décor, and general atmosphere are all amazing. We sat at a booth close to the street and looked over the menu. The menu is extensive and very interesting. While we were deciding, our waiter brought us some chips and tortillas (they make them here at the restaurant) with a tray of several sauces/dips – all free.

There were only a few people at the restaurant when we got there, but by the time our food arrived the place was packed. I don’t remember what we ordered (I wish I had written it down), but we did take pictures of all of our food!

Brandon and Amanda’s:


Mine and Stefan’s:

We all agreed hands-down that this was the best meal of the trip so far. Also the best service. Our waiter explained some of the more unique dishes, and answered all of questions with enthusiasm. La Malquerida – I highly recommend this place if you are looking for something different that you won’t find on other menus.

We stayed for a bit after dinner and had a few margaritas. After walking up and down Hidalgo a couple of times, we headed back home and hung out on the balcony before turning in for the night. This was our most relaxing day so far...
