Bandidos Grill, On Fire, part III
As Diane and I were driving back home from an afternoon at Tecolote Beach, we spotted an unfortunates truck, on fire, on the side of the road in front of Abaroas´Marine Hardware. Poor guy, wonder what happened...
Instead of anyone else reacting to the blaze, we realized that besides the oddness of the truck parked halfway on the sidewalk, there were also plastic tables and chairs as if this was a planned event. Thus was our introduction to Chembys, now known as Bandidos´Grill.
Bandidos is now one block closer to the water and contained by a fence, no longer open to the casual view. Lessens the impact of seeing the truck, which was has a custom built mesquite grill in the engine compartment and a propane powered deep fat fryer in the bed of the truck, flames merrily turning the raw patties into juicy, messy burgers.
Speaking of burgers, the ones here are quarter or half pounders and have grilled onions, barbeque sauce, lettuce, tomatoes , bacon and mayo. And cheese. Of course yo can get them a couple of different ways and get a chicken breast burger instead. The menu has greatly expanded since moving off Abasolo, but we like to stick to the basics. Did I mention french fries?
Open for breakfast as well, serves beer and drinks. corner of Topete and Legaspy near marina de la paz.

- Before gaining control of my life, I created pastries for some cool places in California: San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, Brix Restaurant in Napa and The Lodge in Sonoma. Now I am the chef/owner of Pan D' Les bakery in La Paz. My personal favorite is the Multigrano loaf, full of crunchy seeds and a nice chewy crust.
