Buen Provecho at Olvera Street

Buen provecho means enjoy your meal in Spanish. That’s exactly what Pam and I did when ate lunch at La Golondrina Mexican restaurant on Olvera Street. The delicious smell of warm Mexican dishes and the beautiful songs the Machi band sang lured us towards La Golondrina.

To hear the Machi play, Pam and I decided to eat outside the restaurant. As we waited for our meal, we snacked on chips and salsa. We even had the Machi band sing a song just for us. I had them sing Sigo Siendo El Rey. We ordered two huge margaritas, which I had been looking forward to getting, and made a toast to friendship.

When I got my Mexican dish I was delighted, since I hadn’t had mole poblano in many years. I especially liked the fried banana garnish. We ate our delicious meal, got a little tipsy, had some water, and headed on our way to do some more shopping on Olvera Street with a full happy stomach!

Since my fireman and I like learning how to make our favorite foods, mole pablano has just been added to my list to learn. That’s saying a lot since honestly I really don’t like to cook.


  1. I wish I had known you were in LA! We could have had a craft or lunch date! Glad you enjoyed it though. Olvera St. is one of my favorite places to go. You should see their Dia de los Muertos festival. It's amazing.

    1. My friend and I are thinking of going to Olvera Street for Day of the Dead this year. Maybe we can meet up? We are also planning to see Beauty and the Beast in LA. Maybe you'll be interested in that too. I would love to meet you in person and hang out!
