I recently managed to catch up with Akira and his beautiful Missus on one of their trips down to San Diego; which reminded me, I had promised some follow-up posts after our quick trip to Ciudad Obregon, but never followed up....sigh...what a tease!
So here's quick post for a Saturday night.
So what happens after you attend an epic wedding in Ciudad Obregon which ends with shot of tequila watching the bride and Q-nito do Gagnam style in the middle of the street at 4am?
Well. you wake at 8am and have Akira and his now wife take you to get birria! Well at least Q-nito and I.......Samuelo was incommunicado, must have been tough challenging the band's singers to a dance-off, huh?
"D" drove us down a couple of streets to the just the perfect place for me. A streetside stand by the name of Taquería Jiménez. The specialty, birria de chivo. By now, "D" had concluded that we weren't after "gringo food", we wanted the real deal and this place was, without a doubt, just the perfect remedy after an epic evening.
You know, whether it's Sapa, Hanoi, Luang Prabang, Cusco, or heck, even Chula Vista, I've found some of the most soulful, hearty, and honest food at places like this. Taquería Jiménez was no exception.
Rich, belly coating, hearty food, with the right amount of carbs somehow revitalizes you....or at least just makes you right mentally.
I don't think I need to add much more.
Though I'll leave you with this little tidbit. I did a search looking for an address. I finally found it on one of the those "food sites"....well actually let's give it up for foursquare.
For some reason, I was interested in the comments on this place. I went and did a translation of the first one which said, ""Tacos to revive after a long night of partying"......how true!
