Looking for the ultimate Menudo ...

Along with tamales and enchiladas, Menudo is one of my go-to comfort foods. I prefer the more rustic, complete preparations with multiple cuts of tripe, pata and not too much hominy (if any). The best commercial preparation I’ve had locally has been from La Indiana Tamales.

Who do you think serves up the ultimate, off-the-charts Menudo in SoCal?

Your insights are appreciated and will be followed-up on as always.

    Check out the menudo blanco at El Sinaloense in Huntington Park/South Gate. It has tendon in the mix, a serious menudo, and cool regional treat.

      Yo, Street!

      I appreciate the recommendation and look forward to checking it out soon. Someone mentioned another Sinaloan place to me that's in the same general area - Badiraguato on Firestone. I was told that they serve a white menudo as well, Have you been/any feedback? Is white menudo typical or representative of Sinaloa?

        White menudo is typical of Sonora and Sinaloa. Badiraguato is closed.

        Besides El Sinaloense, there's also Gumacus on, both on State St. in South Gate.

        The tendon is delicious.
