Burritos, tacos, quesadillas, and fajitas aren’t the only things that are just Mexican food / Hay más otra comida mexicana que tacos, burritos, quesadillas, fajitas

Menudo – intestinal soup / Menudo – sopa mexicana que tiene intestinos

In Mexico, I once tried something called menudo which was a red-looking soup that I had no idea about. I saw signs for it that it only sold during the weekends so I decided to order it. It was basically intestines or guts in this soup that you can put in it – onions, green onions, lime (squeeze the juice in it), and you can eat tortillas by dipping into it. I had initially had issues eating it but on my second try, I was scarfing it down like nothing – it was good to go down the pipe.

Yo probé otra comida mexicana como las sopas. Hay una sopa que sirve solamente los fines de la semana en los restaurantes de México: menudo. Es una sopa roja con los intestinos de una vaca y normalmente se pone cebollas, cebollas verdes, limas, y condimentos y se come con tortillas. Es un poca caliente para comer y por mi primera vez, yo pensé en cómo asco esta sopa era. Pero por mi segunda vez, no tenía problemas la comiendo. Era  deliciosa.

Caldo de res

But for those who don’t want to consume guts or honey-comb intestines, there is an alternative sop which is called, caldo de res. It’s a broth with meat (with a bone in the middle but it can depend on the restaurant), carrot, corn, squash, and served on the side with rice, beans, salsa, limes, and tortillas. It’s really clean to drink the soup and definitely more appeasing to a normal person.

Pero por las personas que no puedan comer intestinos o estómago de un animal, hay una otra sopa mexicana. Es caldo de res. Es una sopa con carne y hueso de una vaca, una zanahoria grande (pero cortada), chocho, y apiñadura. Es limpia y fácil para beber la sopa. Generalmente se come con arroz, limas, salsa, y tortillas. Es también posible que haya frijoles y otras legumbres pero depende en el restaurante.

And for the carnivorous eaters, there is meat of a different type. Look at the picture below.

Y por las personas carnívoras, hay corte arrachera. Miren la foto debajo.

Arrachera

This piece of meat was the best steak I’ve ever had! It was juicy and tasty and didn’t require any kind of steak sauce or BBQ sauce. The best of all was that it didn’t cost a lot like it would in the US which would be over $50 for a great piece of steak and it was natural tasting – I could not taste the chemicals nor the preservatives that I can for most US food. If you can ever order this, try it and eat it…. wow…. what a piece of meat! Also, try the tacos de arrachera – they are better than tacos de carne asada!

Era el mejor pedazo de carne en mi vida. ¡Que filete de vaca! Era muy jugoso y ni siquiera necesité salsa barbacoa o salsa de filete. Yo no lo pagué por mucho dinero  como en los Estados Unidos por $50 o más por filete. ¡No! Me costó casi 250 pesos mexicanos ($22-$23US). Sí, hay tacos de arrachera y si tuviera la oportunidad, ¡pidanlo! ¡jEs mejor que tacos de carne asada!
