ed (from Yuma)

Wow. That sounds wonderful. Good to hear from you again and read some of your stuff. Maybe we'll cross paths again in some SD eatery next time I'm over.


I had lamb barbacoa for the first time earlier this year in Mexico City and have been craving it ever since. Sounds like I need to give Aqui Es Texcoco a try - not sure I'll brave the whole head, though...

Fantastic post MizDucky. Aqui es Texcoco is one of the most unique restaurants in San Diego.

The red peppercorns in the picture are chiletepines from the Sonora Desert - they go really good with the Lamb. You just have to crush them with your fingers.

The dark brown sauce is the Chile pasilla with a touch of honey specifically for the lamb and the light red is a chile morita for the flautas.

Thanks for spotlighting this favorite restaurant of mine!

Wow. I'm so envious! I would have loved to partake of the lamb head! Yummy!


Oh that's it I'm sick of you guys talking about lamb I'm going to go get some birra tacos this weekend! ;-)

Luck you..


They serve Corn smut (huitlacoche) quesadillas??? That is extreme. OMG! You must try them and report back.


thanks for the post. I love lamb. How did you like it in comparison to El Borrego? I've been there a couple times, but thought the flavor of the lamb was on the mild side.
Will have to give it a try


Hey Stephen -

El Borrego is Hidalgo state style lamb barbacoa. Hidalgans traditionally dont season the meat with chile whereas the estado de Mexico folks [Texcoco] do before its wrapped in Maguey and baked.

I think that Aqui es Texcoco is leagues better than El Borrego.


Hi ed--Good to hear from you too! Any time you're back in town give a holler--I do enjoy eating and shooting the breeze with you.

Hi mike--I'd totally love to try this stuff, and just do an eating tour in general, in Mexico City.

Hi Alex--Thanks for the lowdown on the chiletepines! Now that I know what they're called, I Googled this cool article about them -

Hi eatingclub ladies--just checked your blog, looks cool! If you're ever in town drop me a line and we'll go lamb out!

Hi nhbilly--Oh dear! Sorry to drive you crazy, hope you did find some great birria with which to console yourself.

Hi h--oh, but I did try the huitlacoche quesadillas, and they rocked!

Hi stephen--looks like Alex nailed your question. I do know that, as much as I liked El Borrego, the Aqui Es Texcoco variant turned me on a whole lot more.

Hi Alex--Thanks so much for jumping in with that info! I'm still on a learning curve with this stuff myself.


oops! I missed that part. GOing back to read. Ah, after seeing pictures of the stuff on wikipedia, I'm not sure I could stomach it! More power to you!


I tried huitlacoche back in June of last year and wrote about it here:


ooh boy that sounds like some fantastic feasting!
