Broadacres Swapmeet: Once you set foot into the cultural beauty you forget your standing amidst North Las Vegas. From handmade Mexican knick knacks to fresh roasted peanuts you can get the South of the Border (just a gringo term LOL) experience without having to take out a Visa. No but seriously, this place has been in my heart since my childhood days. Being a frequent host to our weekend family outings, were I longed to get to the coconut stand. There you pick your coconut, they drain the water (give it to you in a cup) and cut it up into pieces right in front of you. I would then drench it in lime, salt, and Valentina. Yum! I haven't met anyone who doesn't like coming here, although I do know the 103 degree summer weather can make it difficult to walk around. All in all, I love this place, and hope I can give you a little taste of it through these few pictures!
"Limones" candied limes stuffed with sweetened shredded coconut. My mom's favorite.
Tostilocos: Like nachos in a bag, they're topped with cueritos, cabbage, hot sauce, pico de gallo, avocado and cheese. Definitely not for the faint of heart. My sister's favorite.
Pitaya (Dragonfruit) Sorbet with Rainbow Sprinkles
Jicaletas: Jicama on a stick topped with chamoy and Tajin.
In other news:
Me and my sister had the urge to ride on a roller coaster, so we bought a ticket and went on the Canyon Blaster inside Circus Circus Adventuredome. An indoor amusement park encased in a hot pink dome. It was packed, but I guess that was expected since school's out and EVERYONE and their mama comes here.
We had lunch at Johnny Rockets in the Fashion Show Mall and walked around after that. We snagged some pretty good deals on some hoodies at Victoria Secret and picked up some jewelry at Forever 21.
Sister's burger below, I got a Chicken Philly. We split a milkshake (:
Loved my weekend. For once I didn't stay home and do laundry all day or bummed out in my pj's till 2 pm.
Although, right now, I could totally go for the 2 pm PJ's.
Have an awesome Wednesday!
