Stop #1 was Veronica's Cafe, today at 3:30. They were out of a lot of stuff. Note to self: must wake up earlier.
- Carne con chile taco: C+. Not bad, not that exciting, either. This is their "spicy" beef?
- Lengua taco: C-. Not flavorful enough. Like my mom's brisket. (Sorry, mom!)
- Salsa: B. Consistency like Mexican Sriracha.
- Service: A
(I should add that the only time I've had morcilla was in Valencia, Spain. There, it's a sausage made of pig heart, lungs, neck, blood, and spices. Was served in a super-light crepe, drizzled with honey.
I asked the guy at Veronica's how he makes it: "Just blood.")
Also of note: our friend, Mariel Tam, (who knows her gastronomy like no one's business), says: "The caldo de pescado from Veronica's cured my case of mono. For like a day, anyway. It is fabulous."
