Conservas Valcárcel

We've migrated back. And as soon as we hit town we go to the SuperMercado. And I head to the Sardinas aisle and grab what I don't know.

Back at the House, BK is a Society Member from the way back machine. He calls it out. Let's pop a tin.

This tin cost 790 pesos which is top dollar no matter where you are.
An interesting package got even more interesting when I noticed Serie Limitada on the back of the box.

And then found a fun and thought out tin inside the box. Their Centennial Range.

Plated up with Gamesa Saladitas, La Costeña Rajas, mexilimes and Totopos de tortilla de maíz.

Also some frozen Hornitos and tins of Tecate.

Their website shows History and Tradition, a Sustained Push, and a Calendar of Catches. They are thinking hard and doing good work over in Spain.

These border on brisling, 10 to 12 babies all cleaned up. A decent olive oil but a bit on the mushy side. Not a lot of tooth here.

But damn, put it on a salty cracker, add a pickled chile jalapeño and a squeeze of mexilime and it's delicioso. I wanted to go 3 point 5 but shit, I'm in Cabo, Cuatro Fuera de Cinco Latas. I hope they show up in the States.

No Días Malo.
