Blog a la Pibil

"Blog a la Pibil" was born in Mexico, and was originally based on the adventures of Josue and Lupita, who were traveling in Mexico for two months. This blog is now a continuation of the life of Lupita, who has been restored to her life as a mere mortal in Los Angeles.

So tonight we went back for more birria but to a new location - Nueve Esquinas, just south of the big Cathedral in the historic centro. The birria there is way better than Mercado Libertad. No bones in the goat stew. We accidentally tried a habanero chile in a pickled onion dish on the side. Our waiter, whose night we made as we were gasping for air, recommended that we wait to eat the habanero until borracho. Lupita and I only had a couple small slices, but I think the habanero is beyond the range of enjoyable chiles.

After birria we tried some tequilas at La Rinconada near Plaza Tapatia. For some reason the downtown seems most Mexican at night, when the traffic is manageable and there are couples and families on the benches or getting ice cream. Mas tranquilo, etc. Very pretty, as well.
