Mexican Standard

Well 3 months in and im already getting repetative on my food choices. Though a couple of times a week i will still pick something of which have no idea to the ingredients of off a menu to be devoured. I am finding the dishes that seem to be good wherever you may be and am eating them everwhere i may be.

This version is from a place in San Cristobel called something like green sauce in translation.

First up we have the Al Pastor tacos. This is pork from the revolving middle eastern style meat wad showen below. Which is additionally cut off and fried on a hotplate. To this we add our condiments. Salsa mix stuff of corriander, tomato and onion. Along with more raw onion, pickled onion, a good squeeze of lime and the salsa verde that the place is named after.

This is an awsome taco. With the chunks of pineapple you can see being the spiky fruit that just takes this a step above the others.

My siter Lily recons that these have nothing on the Monterey version (which can be seen by rewinding this site about 4 months). But i aint getting there so it dont count.

Secondly is the soup. Chicken soup with rice and a few veges. You cant really go wrong with chicken soup. Not too many culture that dont do this one around the world and none that i know that can stuff it up (Australia your on the edge, so watch it).

Bit of lime and hot salsa picks it up a bit more. And the chunk of avocado fit in perfectly. Some people tell me they dont like warm or hot avocado. They sould be caged up and fed nothing but soggy weat-bix for a few weeks to make them learn that being a hater doesnt pay off.

On other news i have a Lizi with me which means 2 things. Firstly i have a new camera cable so that i can actually blog again. But secondly i have a pretty & distracting girl with me so blogging might be a bit more haphazard. But your loss is my gain, so ummm……

  1. I love avocado, but there is something wrong when it is warmed. I have nightmares about the time I made toasted sandwiches with avocado. So wrong.

  2. Yeah Cam! How bad is hot avocado, like on pizza. Blergh. Blythe used to put it in pasta sauce. WHICH WAS NOT GOOD. I’ll take the weetbix thanks, and I quite like them soggy.
