Kiki's Mexican Restaurant

I'd be remiss if I didn't write a little about the last local restaurant I ate at before leaving El Paso.

Kiki's is another local restaurant with gobs of atmosphere and great food to match. The dish I almost ate was Machaca with Chicken. The Machaca has the distinction of appearing on the Food Network's "Best Think I Ever Ate" segment. Food Network showcased Machaca with Beef.

I say "almost ate" because there was so much food I didn't eat it all. I didn't realize how much food was there. If I'm ever at Kiki's again I'm going to ask for a half portion.

At the end of the meal I drove up the Scenic Drive that looks south over El Paso, the Rio Grande, and into Juárez. In the night it all looked peaceful and prosperous. I would have liked to have seen this view during the day, but the conference and the flight out of El Paso kept me occupied during the daylight hours. Again, if I'm ever in El Paso, maybe I'll be able to better plan for something like this during the day.
