Help me with Elmhurst Queens spanish menu items..Please
I started a topic about what to get in Elmhurst.
Got some pics but I do not know what to order.
this is something good to report on....
I always wanted to know this stuff, so ill try to fill in the blanks.
first off, it's usually a good thing to have: What he is having...
but to add on to squinchy's...
from Pique y pase el pepin
hornado - roast pork
Fritada - fried pork
Guatita - beef tripe stew
Papas con cuero - Potatoes with pork skin
lengua guisada - stewed beef tongue
encebollado de pescado - tuna soup
caldo de bagre - Catfish Soup
mixtos - probably mixed seafood ceviche
banderas--- NOT exactly sure. it translates to Flags. maybe that means a combination of tamales, humitas and morcillas? which is tamale, sweet tamale and blood sausage - which Could represent a flag of some sort.
If someone can correct me, that would be great.
I'll take a crack at some of these,,,my spanish is pretty much limited to Menus ...
Seco de Chivo=probably goat stew?
Seco de pollo=chicken stew
Carne Guisada=beef stew
Papas con Cuero=gonna guess this is potatoes w/pork skin
Lengua Guisada=stewed tongue
Ceviche de camaron=shrimp ceviche
Carne asada=grilled meat, probably steak
The others I am drawing a blank on but I bet if you google them+Ecuador you can find info.
Good luck and happy eating!
Some of this stuff is probably pretty heavy for a hot summer day!
