We had the good fortune of eating there and of wandering the gardens. This is a synopsis of the lunch, and wonderful garden environment.
The grounds are covered with lush, and enthusiastically decorative gardens, fountains and resident animals. It was worth our while to spend more than a few minutes taking it all in. There are small details, and unexpected plants that we appreciated having slowing down for.
I saw more than a few plants I did not recognize, and many that I did, but in such wonderful condition I was still found them noteworthy.
The cafe has more than one seating area, and as we were there for an arranged banquet we ate in a large open patio somewhat behind the cafe. The breeze coming through was appreciated on a warm day!
I had a very well made tortilla soup. The tomato element of this recipe was
thicker than what I’m accustomed to, and I loved it. My main dish was the best barbque chicken I’ve had in several years. It was cooked properly, the meat was tender, the flavor of the sauce penetrated the entire breast, and my daughter and I both cleaned our plates. The licuados wew exceptional, refreshing with perfect consistency.
If you plan a trip to El Salvador and along the Ruta de las Flores, I recommend you take one of your meals here, and that you walk the gardens with your camera in hand. These few pics I’m posting were taken with my cell phone, I’m no real photographer, but if you are a shutterbug the whole region is a banquet for your eyes.
