A Taste Of France In Cuenca

This past week I had the gastronomic pleasure of eating at Le Triskell, creperie, francaise, located at Eduardo Crespo Mala and Gran Colombia. They are open everyday except Monday.

I had their breakfast special for $6

Coffee or tea + juice
-French Omelet with bacon or vegetables
-French toast
-Butter and marmalade
-Fresh fruits

The food was presented beautifully, the owners came out to check on the service and quality of food.  Run, don’t walk to this great find in Cuenca.

But, not only am I tasting these delicacies  I am selling them. And, added to these delicacies is Paiche a South American White Fish that is similar to Halibut.

One Heck Of A Paradigm Shift – Amazon Go

A paradigm shift is defined as a fundamental change in approach or underlying assumptions. Standing in line at a supermarket cashier to pay is the way all of us understand and have practiced for years. For me its over 50 years of shopping and standing in line.

My conservative estimate is that I have spent 10 days of my life standing in line to pay. Amazon Go is going to change that paradigm at least for Supermarkets.

What do you think of this new paradigm?
