Al Trompito

Al Trompito

Miguel doing his thing

Out front of Al Trompito stands Miguel wielding his blade at the rotating meat that makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

Al Trompito is located at Londres #199 in the Zona Rosa of Mexico City. The restaurant is very basic, however when the clock hits 4pm there is rarely a vacant seat in the house.

Construction of the pyramid complex begun in the 3rd Century BC and last until the 9th century AD. It was constructed in 4 stages built over what was already there.

Nikon D60

Shooting with the D60 is a great experience, its ease of use combined with the quality attainable makes this camera a perfect entry level DSLR.

It boasts multiple shooting modes with various output qualities, I prefer to shoot in RAW + JPEG and find the quality and light information on the RAW images to be great.

Negro Modelo

fles_negra

Country: Mexico

Alcohol %: 5.3%

Negro Modelo is another Mexican beer brewed by Grupo Modelo . As the name would suggest it is a dark beer or as expressed in Mexico “Oscura”

This beer has much more body than the “Clara” lagers of Mexico and finishes with a medium to strong malt aftertaste.

The bottle itself summons a sense of grandeur, it is a stubbier bottle than most and is tinted dark with a golden foil sealing the opening.

I would suggest this beer to even the most picky of connoisseurs as its body carries well and finishes strong leaving you wanting for more.

My rating 4.5/5
