We have many wonderful daily surprises living in Ajijic,Lake Chapala. There always seems to be something to capture our imaginations and make us ever grateful for the opportunity of living in paradise.
Last night we were looking for a place to have a casual dinner out with good friends who has just safely arrived from Colorado driving through Ciudad Juarez, I might add, without incident.
Our friends had recently come upon this wonderful little place run by a very nice and clearly talented couple from Mexico City, Sergio and Silvia.
La Quekas del Abuelo is located on Colon #16 in downtown Ajijic. It is just down the street towards the lake from Bancomer on the plaza and look for Zebra Jewelers on the left side. Walk up the few steps towards Zebra and the door to La Quekas del Abuelo is on the left.
They are open from 9 to 9 from Wednesday to Monday.
Sergio and Silvia enjoy the reputation of “La casa de las buenas quesadillas”.
