Wonderful Dining with Lolo Lorena
I had been raving about my awesome dinner at Lolo Lorena’s to Perry for a year! So when we found out we would actually get to be together in Mexico for a few days I knew Lolo Lorena’s dinner was at the top of our list.
Reservations made, we grabbed a taxi to Chedraui to choose our wine for the evening. (guests are encouraged to bring their own drinks of choice).
We settled on an Argentine wine called Alma Mora, and bought two just n case 🙂
We are so excited…. we are too early, we grab another taxi and head over to Chuuk Kay for a before dinner drink, after our drink, we just can’t stand the anticipation and walk back to Lolo’s, we are the second couple to arrive, (oh good, I didn’t want to look too overly anxious!)
Introductions, and Julie (Lolo’s assistant) pours us each a glass of our wine. Soon after, the rest of the guests arrive, three more, we are a party of 7..perfect. More introductions and fun “getting to know everyone conversation” when it all begins!
First course, to get us started…
Bruschette , with grilled provolone , tomatoes and grilled pepper with balsamic vinaigrette and flakes of parmigianno extra vecchio.
Second course, to keep us enticed…
Gnocchi gratine with fresh tomatoes and creamy devilish sauce
Third course, to keep us wanting more….
Fourth course, we are just drooling at this point…
The last and certainly not least grand finale, DESSERT HEAVEN!!!
Belgian chocolate mousse, candy grape , home made lychee and rasberry jello, iced creme brulée , sponge cake with rose water butter cream , and vanilla macaroons with fresh blueberry
I think everyone was licking their plates!
I loved it all, the candied grape was so interesting, you bite into a hard candy sweet glaze and inside is a juicy grape, Lolo is genius!
All of her dishes, or should I call then creations, are made with love, like works of art! I don’t normally get this mushy over food! 🙂
I wish I had a tape recorder for all of oohs, yums, and ahhs!
The gang, full of wonderful Lolo creations, new friends and great memories!
Thank you Lolo, for the wonderful evening, great food and above all for being you!……besos, Perry & Laura

- Do not eat here if you are expecting an all-you-can-eat-buffet, you are not open to the idea of trying new things, you have a problem dining at a communal table and you are a “hurry through dinner” type of person.
- DO dine here for an experience like no other!
