The Dep welcomes back Chef Erika Araujo of Ixiim for another delicious foray into the world of Mexican street foods. Outside of Mexico, tacos tend to get all the attention, despite having an incredible variety street foods, including some seriously phenomenal sandwiches like pambazo. Similar to a torta, but more specific, pambazo tends to have a very specific combination of bread, filling and sauce: soft but resilient wheat bun, chorizo and potato (or potato-only) filling, and a flavourful, ruby-red guajillo pepper sauce, into which the sandwich is dipped before being griddled until crispy on both sides. It is then garnished with shredded lettuce, salsa, crema, and queso fresco for a delightfully messy and delicious eating experience.
Frijoles Charros (Chorizo -or- Vegetarian)
A classic Mexican bean dish, frijoles charros (named after charros, Mexican cowboys) has creamy black beans stewed with onion, garlic, red peppers, tomatoes, and cilantro, topped with a crumble of chorizo or cotija cheese and served with crispy totopos (tortilla chips) for dipping.
Pambazos (Chorizo -or- Vegetarian)
2 mid-sized pambazo sandwiches, filled with potato and Mexican pork sausage (papas con chorizo) -or- potato & mushroom, garnished with lettuce, green salsa, sour cream and fresh cheese. Served with nopales (cactus) salad with tomato, onion and cilantro.
