We took a drive again today to our new favorite garden center, Viveros Guzmán in Alhaurin de la Torre. In the mountains. A world away from the sea and the city. (Note: Viveros means Nurseries.)
First we stopped for gas and to have the car washed. At San Geraldo’s request, I bought some treats while we waited to help us survive the long, long, — 25-minute — ride. (Don’t worry. We brought plenty of water.)
I bought too many treats. But I had to; they were on sale. We managed to consume only three PiM’s each (a bit of heaven my sister, Dale, introduced me to when I was still in my teens) before stopping for lunch a few minutes from Viveros Guzmán.

San Geraldo had done some research before-hand and found what sounded like an interesting restaurant. So that’s where we headed before loading up the car with plants.

The restaurant is called Papas Fritas Y Juevos (French Fries and Eggs). It turned out to be located in an industrial/business park near a beautiful residential area. It’s obviously extremely popular.
Great food, service, and price. We decided it would be worth a drive back up just for a meal. We thought the joint was jumping but our server told us it was a very quiet day. She said if we ever wanted a meal there on a Wednesday or Saturday to be sure to make a reservation. Good to know.
