e_pintado This is the only place I know that can take you back to the time of the Aztecs to eat what is considered nowadays a delicacy. No... that taco is not made from Chihuahua dog meat as they were bred for over 500 years ago, just some regular pork. The star of today's show is that quesadilla to your right made of #huitlacoche aka "corn smut", a fungus that grows like a cancer on corn kernels and sells for double the price of corn. My theory is that during a time of famine the indigenous people of Mexico were forced to eat it for survival only then discovering its inquisitive taste. If you're like me and have a knack for #exoticfood you'll love this dish washed down with some #tepache which is the drink centerpieced in the pic made of fermented fruit. This can only be described as #foodofthegods #rincontaurino #huitlacoche #tepache #tochtli #historylesson #realmexicanfood #bizzarefoods #epeezy 2h

foodie_jess Veggie tacos on home-made corn tortillas are phenomenal! These have zucchini, #huitlacoche (blue corn mushroom), onion, and cojita cheese. Accompanied by delicious margaritas!
