Something Clean

Question asked by San Geraldo while he worked on his latest New York Times crossword puzzle:

"Do we start with a clean PLATE or a clean SLATE?"

"Personally, I always start with a clean slate," I replied. "Starting with a clean plate could involve "cooking"!


Here's what our plates look like at Meson Salvador — before we clean them.
(Click the images to be completely "satisfied.")

PARILLADA (BARBECUE).
A COLLECTION OF MEATS FOR 2; COULD EASILY SERVE 4.
(COSTILLAS) RIBS.

TARTA DE QUESO (CHEESECAKE).

A clean slate can be good, too...

      Take not the I usually get a dish with veg instead of chips. I'm such a saint. Then I follow with cheesecake or chocolate cake.

  7. Is all that food for just the two of you? It all looks delicious, but those veggies that look like grilled eggplant makes me drool. The sweets are pretty, but it's those veggies that I'd devour!

      You'd have to import the staff, too. They make it all even more delicious.

      I'm not a leg of lamb person, but I'm told -- every single time -- that it's out of this world.

  10. Your vittles continually inspire me to eat better.
    I don't want to end up simply having visited this world
