Cinco De Mayo is upon us and it's time to celebrate. How will you celebrate this year? Will you head out and grab the best tacos in Lansing? Perhaps you plan on attending one of the Cinco De Mayo events happening in Lansing. Whatever you decide to do, you'll have plenty of options.
One of the things that comes with Cinco De Mayo is the celebration of Mexican culture and learning more about heritage and trying new foods. If you are headed out to a festival or event it's most likely you'll have a nice time and a fun experience. If you are heading out to a local Mexican restaurant to grab some food and drinks, try something new on the menu that you haven't tried before.
I haven't tried it. I am willing to try it. Have you tried it? I am talking about menudo. I have some friends that swear by menudo. No, I am no talking about the band. I am talking to a tasty dish, buckle up, wikipedia says:
In Mexican cuisine, Menudo, also known as pancita ([little] gut or [little] stomach) or mole de panza ("stomach sauce"), is a traditional Mexican soup, made with cow's stomach (tripe) in broth with a red chili pepper base. Hominy, lime, onions, and oregano are used to season the broth.
If the description is a turn off, why is it so popular? I'm not afraid to try any type of food. The worst thing that could happen is I don't like it and I don't have to eat it anymore. I have often heard that menudo is a good hangover cure. While I am 5 1/2 years sober, plenty of my friends have eaten menudo to help with their hangovers. At this point in my life I am going to eat it for the experience and to see if I like it.
Whatever the reason is that you might be trying menudo for the first time or if you are an afficonado with regard to menudo, there are plenty of places in Lansing to get it. Enjoy your Cinco De Mayo, try something new and please enjoy responsibly.
