So yesterday, the hubs and I went to celebrate the beautiful-ness of life… and went to “El Farolito” to eat some Mexico city style tacos. Here, I’m sharing with you some pictures. They look mouthwatering, right? so of course, I started with a corn tostada covered in pico de gallo, with a dash of lemon juice and salt, and a little green salsa.
Of course with green salsa (I don’t like very much the red salsa they have).
After a big bite…
I followed with a huarache with fresh cheese and “carne al pastor”. “Carne al pastor” is pork seasoned with a marinade made of different types of red chile, some seasoning and achiote. Achiote is a red seed that is used to marinate food, and this seed you can crush it with other seasonings to create achiote paste. This meat is cooked and stacked in a “trompo” form (like an inversed triangle with two points on top and one on the bottom, I promise to get a picture next time), and placed in a rotating stick with pineapple and cooked in there. Ok, it’s difficult to explain. Promise a photo.
Ok, I can’t rotate the hubs pic. He’s eating a “cueritos” taco. EEEWWWWWWWW!
I don’t like them. Cueritos are the pork skin, cut in pieces, cooked in vinegar. A lot of people love them. I can’t eat them. They look disgusting. I’m sorry.
And finally, my pastor taco. Just a simple taco of pastor pork with pineapple and chopped onion.
And rice horchata water. This is a drinking water prepared with: rice meal or flour, sugar, cinammon, sweetened milk, and vanilla.
