So… What did you eat in Mexico City?

My friends know I’m always on the lookout for great food, so one of their first questions when I return from a trip is “What did you eat?” Here are some highlights from my recent Mexico City trip.

Pozole – El Parián. Los Angeles

It was the best pozole I’ve ever had. Generous pieces of stewed meat and chewy hominy in a rich broth. Served with a plate of chopped cabbage, onions, radishes, tomatoes and cilantro, and a dish of dried oregano and crushed peppers… A dash of tapatío and some warm, hand-made tortillas, and I was a happy guy.
