Donut halves are lightly toasted with cheese, bacon and a runny egg. This is a truly indulgent breakfast sandwich.
I’ve been obsessed with breakfast lately, can you tell? It’s ironic because growing up breakfast used to be my least favorite meal of the day. I think that’s now switched to lunch. I hate how limited lunch menus are.
Triple Coconut Mug Cake. If you love coconut, this is the cake for you.
It’s almost crazy how many different forms of coconut there are these days. Coconut milk, coconut creamer, coconut water, coconut oil, coconut sugar, coconut flakes. I briefly considered trying to make every ingredient in this cake coconut but that seemed too extreme. Plus, unless you have all the ingredients on hand, that’d be a lot of extra items you’d need.
Aqui Es Texcoco, known for their lamb barbecue (barbacoa), has drawn the attention of many food media outlets and was even featured on Andrew Zimmern’s Bizarre Foods a few years ago.
Texcoco is a region in Mexico where lamb barbacoa originated. Traditionally, the meat is slow roasted for hours in an underground fire pit covered with maguey leaves. Because of US restaurant regulations, this process is not done here, but according to many, Aqui Es Texcoco’s is the best you’ll taste in the US and closely resembles the traditional version.
I’ve personally never tasted the Texcoco version, but I do enjoy the lamb barbacoa here.
We recently visited this weekend and there was actually a crew from the Cooking Channel filming a taco segment. Luckily, we were still able to grab a table.
Aqui Es Texcoco specializes in lamb barbacoa and it’s basically what you should order when you are here. A good choice is the barbacoa plate which comes with a variety of lamb parts along with soft tortillas and taco fixings so you can make your own lamb tacos.
However on this visit, we decided to get the lamb tacos, served with grilled tortillas. You can choose from lean meat, rib, tripe, brain or head. We chose to get one of each.
