Dos De Buche Y Uno De Lengua

if you don’t know, buche is stomache lining, figured I should clear that up

I stopped in a Taqueria Vallarta for the first time in a long time. The first time I came here was on christmas years ago after kicking it at my friends radio show. My homie Marz knew they were open so we stopped by wrecked some tacos and then went across to the Treat Bar, which is no more, and put away some redneck special, shot of whiskey and a pbr for 3 bucks or something retarded. I hadn’t been since the taco cart got moved from the sidewalk to inside the restuarant. SF health inspector is a bitch like that, always fronting on someone for trying to slang good food on the street.

I’ve never had anything else there but tacos from the cart, it’s a good look too. Basically it’s a warming dome for tortillas and all around the base sits a variety of meats simmering away.  Add the salsa, cilantro, onions and whatever other accessories you need yourself. Super cheap, I think 3 tacos and a jarritos runs you like 3.25

not my photo, jacked it from flickr


The Carmen Steak

My Italian godfather makes soppressada (or supersata) in his basement every fall. Being that he lives in North East Pennsylvania, he’s been experimenting with venison this past season.




More pork in the park

plug1 over at whatimseeing took this photo.

Got to the park late but I liked my rub better this time, less paprika more cumin. Because I was running late I didn’t bother cutting the skin off, just said fuck it, rubbed it up and threw it on the grill. The running late part put a dent in my trying to get this 16lbs chunk of awesome up to 190 so it ended up more like chopped pork, still flavorful and juicy though. I’m really happy with my sauce this time around, I think I got that shit dialed in now. Got smart and wrote down an actual recipe for it too. (more…)
