OK... i can see there were no responses to my post about Mexican buffets in El Paso.  LOL

thats ok.  i cant say i am not disappointed.

 

i did find several that were great..... and really satisfied my huge appetite.

if you really want to know the names of the places.... you can send me a PM and i'll let you know.

 

but this post is about Buche.......  this odd meat i found in my favorite Mexican grocery in the take out section.

i bought a small piece and i discovered i LOVED it.

 

from what i can tell... BUCHE meat is a pigs throat.  they fry it in lard and you can eat it chopped up in a warm tortilla.

really it was wonderful !  it is thin slices of meat from the throat.... its chewy but its very tasty.

 

so ?  has anyone had this  and if you have ? did you like it ?

i am crazy about it.  lol

 

man i LOVE El Paso !

I thought it was stomach. That's what they said it was at the one restaurant where I've had it.

Judy's in Kansas City, KS. I liked it too.
