LOCATION: Loreto, Baja California, Mexico
WEATHER: Another picture-perfect day
Today is our last full day in Loreto. We decided to do a taco and a margarita tasting test. There are a lot of hole-in-the-wall taco joints with very interesting offerings…
This one offers…
Cabeza = head
Carne Asada = Roast beef
Tripitas = Little cute tripe bits (intestine lining)
This one specializes in beef head delicacies..
Ricos tacos de cabeza = Delicious head tacos
Lengua = tongue
Ojo = eye
Seso = brains
Cachete = cheek
Labio – lips
Consume – beef broth
One more to check out….
Tripa = tripe = intestine lining
Adobada – Marinated beef
Ubre = – udder (sounds chewy!)
Asada – roast beef
Finally, we settled on this little place with a blackboard sign hanging over a motorbike…
Tortas ahogadas = drowning sandwich
Tacos ahogadas = drowning tacos
We had one of each. They turned out to be BBQ pork “drowned’ with a meat broth. Very tasty!
Then, we went to two different restaurants, both claiming to have the best margaritas in town. Both tasty. Great way to end our stay in lovely Loreto!
