Folks in one region of Mexico seem to prefer their tripitas breaded and fried. I can’t tell you which area this is, but I tasted it in Florida once in a mom-and-pop cafe… I think the people were from Tamaulipas state. "Tacos de tripitas" on the menu was the dead giveaway.
As soon as I am able to range out again (I know I keep saying this and not doing it, but there are a wad of reasons), I’ll try every Mexican eatery in these parts and see if anyone serves menudo on the weekends. I’ll also hunt tripitas on the menu.
Face it, people – if I love livermush (which I do, seriously, unquestionably), then it’s a mighty short sidestep to tripe in any form. Hmmm. Perhaps that’s why I make so many silly posts – I’m full of mush and tripe!
