Wonderful outdoor dining near the main plaza Apr 22, 2011
Beautiful outside terrace dining. We had a mexican torta (a sandwich) with ham and jalapeno and tacos. Great people-watching restaurant only a block or two off of of the main plaza.

The waiter was so nice to us. I was asking him the significance of the name "Ten Ten Pie". He said it was a meal between normal meal times, sort of like Brunch in the USA. I asked him if it was the same as a Merienda. Apparently Merienda in mexico is the same as cena (dinner). In Puerto Rico it's a afternoon snack between meals.

I guess he was happy that I was speaking spanish to him because he gave us a coffee and two beer as a courtesy of the house!
Happy to be eating
The entrance

Yeah, tentenpie is some sort of snack between meals. To me it sounds like an old fashioned word now, but maybe not in that part of Mexico!
