Cuenca’s International Food Show is one of two annual events here that I keep an eye out for. The other one being the Orchid Show.
Like last year, this years show was on a Sunday at the Mall del Rio Convention Center, started at twelve thirty and admission was a dollar. The proceeds go to support the local cancer hospital. This is a very popular annul event and it was packed.
Last year I arrived at 2 P.M. which is entirely too late and much of the food was gone. This year, being a veteran, I went with a game plan. All of the various countries represented were in the same spot they were in last year so I knew exactly where to go. I was there when they opened and headed straight for the Mexico table and got a plate dinner, it was $6.
I brought a plastic container with a resealable lid that I had in my backpack. After the Mexican dinner I headed outside to the Spain table and bought a plate of Paella that I put in my backpack for later, also $6.
This worked out really well so I’ll do that again next year.
