You Ate What?: Philippines Edition

If you peek around the crannies and crevices of South Texas, you’ll find some fare that one might deem…unconventional, influenced by the stones-throw country to the south. The venerable menudo is a common dish, delicious tripas and sesos tacos, the beloved barbacoa. Just need a snack? Dive into a bag of chicharonnes.

“Try this,” I’d say to a visitor.

“What’s in it?”

“Just give it a shot.”

Head meat, intestines, brains, skin. Freaking delicious.
