“Not White People Food”

Yesterday, I ate menudo for the first time, the Mexican soup with tripe and hominy. I had joined the boss for lunch at one of those little taquerias. Not having eaten menudo before, I do not know how good this taquerias’ rendition of menudo was. I did not detect any hominy in the soup. The tripe had the texture of pieces of fat – it was soft and almost melted in the mouth. The Anglo wife of a friend who is of Mexican descent said that I was adventurous for being willing to try menudo; she described it as “not white people food.”
