In the growing Latino community of Lexington, Kentucky (aka Mexington), immigrant Laura Patricia Ramirez and her family suspected the new “Spanish” influx into town might mean they could earn a living providing comida Mexicana to the neighbors. First they imported fresh tortillas from Chicago, and then started making their own. Now they own a tortilla/taqueria even the gabachos love — they come for the asada and stay for the lengua. [EDITOR’S NOTE: Ramirez has the first Southern drawl-spiced Mexican accent we’ve ever encountered. God Bless THIS America, land that we love.]

Thanks to our amigo Profe Steven Alvarez for the link.

We never thought much about taquero equipment, but if you wanna be a full service taco cart gal and serve up tacos al pastor, you’ll need a plancha AND a vertical grill and a trompo. Here’s a video from local restaurant supply company OC Taco Carts where salesman Jorge Alonso shows off the shiny stainless steel cart.

New Compton location at the Crystal Auto Spa means plenty of parking at night for Los Tres Garcias Taco Truck. Jose “Tacos y Trifectas” Contreras (@LosPonies on Twitter) gives them an 8.1.

You’re not going to believe this,
but I was born sitting at the kitchen
table with a tamale already in hand.
Of course, some say, that I was born
on a pool table, but that’s another
story.

I still remember the hogs head
simmering in a pot as my uncle
Louie and his buddies sat listening
respectfully as my grandfather
spoke about times gone by. [Mas…]

The National Pork Board wants you to eat more of “the other white meat” and got Puerto Rico-born, Miami-based, Asian-gastropub-owning chef José Mendín to share how he makes Michoacan-style pork carnitas. We’re surprised by his use of condensed milk in the recipe, but that shows why we’re not a five-time James Beard Award nominee and […]
