“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

I'm a pretty good cook, which means I'm often disappointed when I go out to eat. Now and then, however, I find a gem as I did this week: Carmencita's in Fort Myers.

It was a good mix of traditional Mexican and California Fresh. The guacamole, for example, was unlike any I've ever had. The main ingredient was chopped tomatoes, followed by chopped onions, and then chopped (note: not smooshed) avocado. It was chunky and delicious, and I don't think I'll ever like the pasty version again. (In the photo you can see I dumped it over the rice and beans.)

In this photo, next to the rice and beans you'll see a chili relleno, which is a battered and fried poblano chili filled with white cheese. The cook did something extra, too, which I've never seen done: He flash braised some tomatoes, onions and fresh jalapenos and poured them on top.

Okay ... how many hours 'till lunch?
