pozole in the D? [SW Detroit]

trapani Dec 25, 2011 09:33 AM

Looking for a good bowl of pozole in SW Detroit. I know & like El Barzon for pozole, but are there any simpler places you might recommend, ie taquerias with pozole?

Also yearning for "carne en su jugo"--a western Mexican soup/stew.

    Try La Botana in Troy (Square Lake and John R).....they often have pozole on the weekends. I would call first to double-check though.

    Weekdays, they always have fideo, which is also yummy.

    BTW: All their salsas and sauces are homemade and they are GOOD! I lived in Mexico City and it is just like the good homecooking I had there.

      Taquería Mi Tierra at Oakwood and Schaefer sells a decent carne en su jugo. Generally tasty stuff there at rock bottom prices.

      There must be other places with pozole. I would be surprised if Taquería Mi Pueblo didn't have it. But since El Barzón's is so terrific (both green and red), I've never eaten it anywhere else.

        I tried El Barzon's Posoole and I have to say it wasn't as good as my own homemade.....but since I am Polish, I guess it isn't authentic (grin).

          Taquería Mi Pueblo has pozole, menudo and birria on weekends only. I have yet to try any of them, as I am only in the Detroit area during the week.

            El Nacimiento has pozole blanco on the menu daily. It didn't blow me away, but was serviceable. It's possible that the server sized me up as a gringa and advised the kitchen to give me the "safe" pieces of pork, rather than the sundry parts that might be floating in the bowl had I indicated that I wanted them.
