14. August 2012: Street Restaurant Sopes

| August 22, 2012 | 0 Comments

The Street Restaurant Sopes (that’s not really its name but there is no official name, so I decided to call it that way) is one of many typical Mexican street kitchens you can find all over. And as the name already suggests, they sell “sopes”.

Sopes are a simple but rich dish – a corn tortilla (kind of) is grilled, cheese is put on it, and then, depending on what topping you want, chicken and ham (Sope con pollo y jamon; 42 MXN) with cheese and onions which has a very rich and intense taste.

Or you can have another topping like “chicken and chorizo” (also 42 MXN) which is even better because it is spicy and more intense.

In any case, the sopes are absolutely tasty and rich. The dish is pretty simple, rich and costs absolutely nothing (about CHF 3.00 or EUR 2.50). And you are absolutely satisfied after having eaten just one.

The place of course is pretty simple so you might also consider taking the sopes home and eat them there but the people preparing the sopes are friendly and helpful.

If you are in Mexico, you should definitely try a few of these street kitchens – great food for no price!

I was in touch with food since my early childhood (as my father is a former chef). Whenever I can, I travel the world to discover new places, to meet people but mostly to try local dishes and to find hidden gems!
