Cooked Tripe in the Triangle?

According to my wonderful Hungarian cookbook (by Lang): "In almost every civilized country you can buy cooked tripe."

So, are we in the triangle civilized (despite not being a country)? Where can I get the stuff pre-cooked? I feel like a bit of a gastronomic adventure, but really don't want to make the entire house smell terrible by cooking a bunch of tripe for five hours....

  1. Look for menudo on the menu at your favorite taqueria. Fiesta Grill has it on weekends.

      Los Cuates on Capital Blvd. has menudo,think just on weekends. Have not tried it though.

    2. If you're looking for non-menudo tripe (not that there is anything at all wrong with that), I think Vin Rouge is known to make it from time to time. I would certainly call first, of course.

      1. Actually, I'm looking for pre-cooked tripe for a recipe, rather than just to eat some. A variety of sources say I should be able to get it pre-cooked from a butcher.
