Sopa Azteca @ El Huequito

El Huequito started as a taco stand in 1959 and gained recognition for their unique take on tacos al pastor (highly recommended).  Now they've grown into a small chain of restaurants and stands around town.  We go to the one near our house on Bolivar and always order the same thing...

Sopa Azteca- It's a mild tomato broth with crispy tortillas, chunks of cheese, dried chile pasilla, avocado, and a side of crema.  It's the best one we've tried. 

Nopal Salad- This cactus paddle salad is special and a good gateway for those who might be unfamiliar with nopal.  They prepare it so that it's not slimy and dress it generously with oregano. 

We always get a few tacos al pastor (of course) AND a side of tortilla chips to enjoy the six different home-made salsas in the center of the table.

Photo 1

There's nothing like having an old SLR laying around loaded with some high-speed black and white film.  It's how most people learn about the mechanics of photography in school, but also, it's just fun.  I love going back to this basic way of shooting now and again.  This roll spans the last three months and includes my excursion to San Miguel de Allende to visit my dad.
