Guest Blogger Donut Excursion: Super Che

Guest blogger Nisi travels to Puerto Escondido, Mexico to visit Super Che

Rarely do Do-Ho's friends travel so far for such (limited) fame and (still more limited) fortune. But our high school BFF Nisi, always a spitfire, has taken it upon herself to hop a plane to Mexico in order to guest blog for us from the Super Che market. The nervewracking thing is, our amiga does not even speak Spanish! No problema--when you're in need of a donut, we all speak the same language. 

Interested in guest blogging? We'd love to hear from you!

Hi! I found these donuts and pastries at the Super Che, the large, modern market here in Puerto Escondido. Everything is out on open shelves instead of behind glass.

The shoppers take a large metal tray and some tongs and just pile their selections on top! When you are finished choosing you take the tray to a counter where your selections are put in a brown paper bag and the total price is affixed on the outside.

This method of walking around with a tray and tongs seems deliciously sinful to me. After being here for a couple days, the comfort of a chocolate covered donut was very welcome! We moaned as we bit into them. MMMMMM......

Today we got three very large muffins (one with strawberry marmalade on top, one pineapple flavored and one that looked good but its make up is unknown), plus three chocolate-dipped donuts and a pastry with cream cheese and peaches on top. All for about three American dollars!
