Places and Food: La Cocina del Puerco, Bellevue, WA

Last Sunday my husband and I wanted some Mexican food for lunch.
A few blocks from our home here in Bellevue, WA there’s a Restaurant called La Cocina del Puerco (the Pork’s Kitchen), we enjoyed the food and we had a really good time there (we ordered the Chile Relleno and some Mexican beers).

Here are few pictures from that day.

Good waffles in a cute food truck: The Waffle Wagon

Every Friday there’s a food truck a few blocks from my apartment and today I decided to stop by.

The truck is pink and really cute, you can see the picture here:

They sell waffles, I bought the “Monkey Chow” (a Buttermilk Waffle with Nutella spread, fresh sliced bananas with whipped cream and chopped nuts on top) and it was really delicious.

I think I’ll be visiting the Waffle Wagon again next week šŸ˜‰
