This morning I was picked up from the hotel and taken out for breakfast. A nice break from the hotel restaurant. Of course, it was also getaway day and I had a bit more time since my flight was in the early afternoon.
My colleague took me to Restaurant El Cardenal.
This is the fourth and newest location for the historic El Cardenal restaurant chain. The restaurant is in a beautiful house in the San Angel area of Mexico City.

Doesn’t this cup of Hot Chocolate look delicious. It was so light and frothy and went well with the croissant that I had. I later had to have a second cup. The way that the chocolate was frothed was very interesting and a neat experience.

Then for the main course.
I didn’t write down the exact name, but this is Aporreado con huevo (dry beef with eggs made in the Michoacan lowland’s style). It was really good. It may be spicy for some, but just perfect for me.
After this wonderful desayuno, it was back to the hotel to pick up my bags and head to the airport. As I write this I am sitting at my home computer, so you know that I made it home safely.
