Yesterday my friends Jack and Virginia took me for a drive in the country to a small restaurant in the town of Yamhill. It was an hour out of Portland, through the wine country. What a treat. Being in the restaurant was like being back in Mexico. The name of it is Lago de Chapala Mexican Restaurant and they served the most delicious Mexican food I have ever eaten. The mole was sweet and chocolaty, homemade. Everything was incredible. The tables and chairs were from Tonala. The waiter was from Guanajuato. Thank you so much Jack and Virginia! I had so much fun. Here are some photos.
