La Mission Restaurant en Cozumel, Mexico

One of the stops on our cruise was Cozumel, Mexico. Michelle suggested eating at La Mission Restaurant.

I would later learn that it is home to some ridiculously spicy hot sauce. However, this would not be the reason alone to try a place out. I like hot sauce and all, but on vacation, I’m not particularly eager to work on getting a hemorrhoid.

La Mission was a pretty cool place that I highly suggest for a great meal. The appetizers we had were Queso Fundido (melted cheese in a mini cast iron skillet) served with corn tortillas and nachos, which were tortilla chips with beans and melted cheese. Not too shabby.

They also served us tortilla soup, which everyone loved, but I declined. At that point, I was on Queso Fundido overload.

We had some mariachis come by and offer to sing some tunes for us, to which we agreed. But, I’m positive they saw “SUCKAS” written all over our faces.

Plus, we were the only ones who tipped, damn those other cheap bastards on vacation.

For dinner, I ordered the combo platter, which included a tamale, rice, a quesadilla, an enchilada, a cheese-stuffed pepper, a couple of fried plantains, and a couple of tostadas. Some moist beef was in the center of the plate.

Now that was some phenomenal stuff. There is nothing like real-deal Mexican food.

Michelle devoured the hot sauce. I took a whiff of it and decided it was better left untouched.
