      Either is fine really. I'm not feeling too picky!

      Where not to get it: Hale and Hearty. They thicken it with corn starch or something. No good.

      I had a bowl at El Centro (9th Ave. & ~54th St.) and it was alright. Not as good as the stuff I had in Mexico though. (Wow did I just say that? I hate when people say that. Ugh.)

          i got a good one at the church on 14th st between 8th-9th avenues early last sunday afternoon.

              The pozole at El Centro is pretty bad, in my opinion. I'm not a pozole conosieur by any stretch, but I really enjoyed my bowl at El Paso. Flavorful and addictive. There are two locations, and both are up on the East side. I went to the one at 97th.


              And they only serve pork pozole, I believe.

                Zarela, which seems to be on a swift decline, still serves a great version of pozole (no soup). It's like little spicy gnocchi.

                Seriously though, get the pozole and maybe a margarita and then move along.
