We had a busy evening planned to meet up with our friend Joyce from Singapore. So Simon had to have a hearty meal in the afternoon.
What? No more?
Simon’s OOTD (Cutest Dude!)
Joyce came over after I got home from work so that we could all go out to dinner.
She mentioned that she had a craving for Mexican food and couldn’t get enough since she’s been visiting. Singapore doesn’t really have any good Mexican restaurants. The only decent place was called Margarita’s but they didn’t serve the type of burritos that you eat while holding, they are more like enchiladas with sauce and cheese on top. So anyways, Ron found this place on Yelp called El Farolito which is rated 4.5 stars (out of 5) with >1300 reviews so we were thinking with that many reviews and still such a high rating, it must be good. Plus it’s in the Mission which is known for great Mexican food.
I would say we weren’t disappointed, I had a carnitas super burrito and Joyce had a chicken quesadilla.
Ron ordered a carnitas torta (a sandwich) which was also excellent. Plus it was pretty cheap. We got there around 6:30pm and there was a short long line, by the time we left around 7:30pm, there was a line out the door.
It was good catching up with Joyce. Just like old times when Ron and I were living in Singapore. She also came bearing gifts from my former co-worker in Singapore.
Thank you Suanty, Soon Yee, and Samuel for the custom made pillow for Simon and the turtle shape sorter toy (plus other toys and clothes). (The pillow is above his head and he is grabbing onto the toys from the shape sorter.) Joyce also got Simon some gifts (including Hello Kitty socks! hehe, they’re blue) which we will surely take pictures of sometime soon.
I had a wonderful time with you Jenn and Ron, and most definitely little Simon 🙂 He is such a cutie! Thank you for taking me out for a great Mexican dinner…hope to catch up again soon. Take care and love always.
