good friend (who is one fabulous photographer and to whom I owe a tremendous debt of gratitude for being the catalyst to launching my food-tography adventures) returned from a recent business trip to Turkey and what better way to welcome her back to the States than over great food and picture snapping.
I love it when the two of us hang out and we whip out our DSLRs and go trigger crazy. The waiters and busboys were so kind to wait until we finished snapping and eating before bringing us our next dish. We met at Zocalo--a contemporary Mexican-style restaurant whose decor is definitely worth writing home about--and enjoyed a wonderful 3-course steal of a meal for $20. Yes, you read right. Twenty smackers for beef flautas, pork chops, chicken tostadas and churros con vanilla helado (ice cream!). Warm and crunchy on the outside with just the perfect amount of cinnamon sugar and a gooey layer of decadence inside, the churros were devoured with our plate of vanilla ice cream. It's hard to imagine that we actually took time out to snap the pictures you see, but so's the life of foodie photographers--how could I possibly not share it with you, right?
P.S. And their service is exceptional--not to mention their blackberry margarita made with 100% blue agave nectar so you can definitely taste the difference. Okay, I'm drooling again. Must stop writing!
Oh, and just in case the collage image is too miniscule for you see, here's my shot of dessert.
