I was conflicted this morning. I wanted to watch the Tour, but I also wanted to ride before the temperatures hit 100 plus degrees. Since this stage doesn't end with a climb, I figured I would catch the replay later in the day.
I had read about a new Mexican restaurant on 8th Street called Paco & John Mexican Diner. It's supposed to be really good, and more importantly, inexpensive. I was in the mood for a plate of migas, so Paco & John's was my destination.
I was thankful for the shade as I rode through the TCU campus area. Even though I was taking it easy I was already sweating.
I find something new everytime I ride through the neighborhoods around TCU.
This is a nice little neighborhood garden. It appears to be filled with native plants and flowers. I guess that keeps the watering to a minimum.
Quiet roads north of Park Hill and west of 8th.
Darn you Paco & John!!! Their website says that they open at 10 AM on Saturdays. A chalkboard sign in the window said that they wouldn't be opening till 11 AM. I was hungry so I took off looking for food.
This is Ellerbe Fine Foods. It's a restaraunt as well as a market selling upscale foods as well as pre-packaged meals.
I ended up stopping at the Gallery Art Cafe on Jennings.
I was surprised to find migas on the menu. I was even more surprised that I enjoyed them. They weren't anything like my grandmother used to make, but they were tasty. The Breakfast Blend coffee was really good.
