FEATURED POST

Sergio and Gloria had quite literally run away with the circus. Leaving their home in Mexico, they worked as trapeze artists in Oakland, California, for a spell, eventually moving on to Buenos Aires with the intention of opening up a circus school. Plans changed, as they do, and somewhere along the way, coffee happened. 

Boy, are we ever grateful that it did…

FISH SOUP IN PARADISE

Hi, my name is Michael, and I’m a fish soup fiend.

More broadly, if it comes from river, lake, ocean or sea, and it bathes in bouillon, I’m all over it like slime on a trout. To wit, I once went on a road trip to Boston with my great friend to see a Tom

Some dishes in life are more like good friends than food. They’re honest, dependable, supportive, encouraging, and when you see them, you light up, knowing full well that you’re in for a good ol’ time. They’re there for you when you’re up, there for you when you’re down, and whenever you might be in need

LA PAZ TACO TASTER: 8 TERRIFIC TAQUERÍAS TO TRY

The taco is a magical little thing that we at The Hungry Herald apparently hardly ever knew, and a few months in Mexico have let us know just how unacquainted we were. From bone marrow to manta ray, the things we’ve found tucked into tortillas so far have had us wowed and re-arranging our brains

TACOSCAPE MEDITATIONS

Remember Chi-Chi’s? I don’t.

Although the Tex-Mex restaurant chain with the eyebrow-raising name (go ahead, Google its meaning in Spanish) was big when I was a kid, I don’t quite recall ever making it out to one of their locations, despite my fascination with reports that they were somehow deep-frying ice cream. I guess we weren’t

A ROUND FOR ROBBIE: TOASTING A TRUE FINE TASTER

There once was a man and his fridge.

More to the point, there once was a man sitting on a kitchen chair in front of his open fridge and staring into it for hours on end.

I never knew exactly what the hell my father was doing when I would find him hunched forward in his housecoat, bathed in the holy glow of that Westinghouse fridge and seemingly ensconced in matters of crucial importance known only to him, the mustard and the ketchup. Every now and then while going about my kid-ness, I’d stop for a curious few seconds and observe. It would seem that the outside world was no more as he peered within and rummaged. I watched him pick things up, check containers,

Some dishes in life are more like good friends than food. They’re honest, dependable, supportive, encouraging, and when you see them, you light up, knowing full well that you’re in for a good ol’ time. They’re there for you when you’re up, there for you when you’re down, and whenever you might be in need of a good kick in the ass, they readily oblige. Also, if the other food unfortunately happens to kinda suck, they just have that special je ne sais quoi for making it all better. Yup, we’re looking at you, pico de gallo…

DIVORCE NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD

Just wow. In Cabo San Lucas, at Land’s End, lies a pair of beaches that together and separately are simply in a league of their own. Playa de Los Amantes (or Playa del Amor) and Playa del Divorcio share the very tip of the Baja peninsula, just shy of the spot where the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean meet in spectacular fashion. Two sides of the same cape, if you will…
