Nine of us met up front this Wednesday afternoon to hop on a Cerritos Juarez bus for the ride to the Gran Plaza for lunch.
I got park owner Felipe to take a picture of us. Karin, Marilyn, Sandi, me, Janice, Pat, Pam, Eddie and Ruth.
Across the street waiting for the bus the “ Wall Flowers!”
I think Pam must be showing Karin pictures of her family!
We got an odd bus today. Two seats on one side and one seat on the other side. More room for people to be packed in standing up I guess.
We had to come in through the mall to find our way upstairs to the restaurant.
Cimaco….and it’s restaurant the Gourmet Cafe is upstairs.
There is an elevator but we chose the spiral staircase.
We’re a lot happier than we look in this picture!
The soup and sandwich part of the menu meant the waitress had to explain it to everyone, one at a time. Pick a soup, a type of salad and then your sandwich. Some things were included, some were not.
I was teasing Ruth about her “non-alcoholic” green drink. Pineapple, orange, celery and parsley. I tried it and it was delicious….even without any booze!
Pam had a sangria with lots of fresh fruit but it didn’t stay mixed and separated into layers. Tasty though!
I thought the tomato soup would be just a cup but it was a whole bowl. Very, very good.
Connie ordered a panini sandwich.
Janice has a salad and ….maybe chicken salad sandwich?
This was a brioche filled with (chicken salad?” that Pam ordered and it looks very tasty as well as very well presented. I like the little hat on the sandwich.
Lots of good stuff in that sandwich.
Pam and her Mexican hat brioche!
If we have room later there are lots of desserts as well.
Hard to get a picture with the light through the big windows in the back.
1/2 sandwich with Asian salad that went with the tomato soup.
My sandwich which had chicken breast and spinach with a spicy Mexican salad. After eating the bowl of soup I was hardly hungry and couldn’t eat all of my salad.
Eddie and Ruth shared lettuce wraps but they didn’t realize they’d have to make their own!
Chicken salad sandwich and fries.
This one has a greek salad with it.
No one went hungry here. We’d thought by ordering the 1/2 sandwich with soup and salad that we’d get less food but….we actually got more!
I had to crop the two people in the left out as they were both chewing and it wasn’t pretty!!!
So…lunch is done, everyone is full and now we will all disperse. Marilyn and I went off to shop. Me for sheets, as the bottom sheets on the bed in the rig have holes in them. Marilyn, for a dress that she tried on yesterday and didn’t buy.
So the Cimaco store restaurant was a very good choice for ladies lunch.
At the end of the day I didn’t buy sheets and Marilyn couldn’t find her dress!
The mall was crowded and full of Christmas shoppers. Only six days till Santa comes.
