Does anyone know where can I get some Pulque in Austin? I've read about it, it is a very interesting and supposedly sacred drink of Mexico.
Not sure where you would get it here. I had it in Mexico and it is interesting. It wasn't bad by any means, but I can see it being an acquired taste mostly due to the texture. Your best bet might be to make your own?
I have seen it in bottles at La Michoacana Meat Market on E 7th, and I wouldn't be surprised if Fiesta sells it. Definitely an acquired taste, btw.
Wiggy's used to have a canned version. Not too bad but I think it was pasteurized which probably changed it. I've been told there is a local-owned convenience store on South First that has the real deal but you know how these urban legends are. A fellow from Mexico told me the best way to drink it is just to drink it all down at once. When I asked him what it was like he said it was nasty!
That could only be the quickie mart where the El Flor(?) taco truck sits. It's pretty much the only non-chain convenience store on South First. Just north of Stassney in the "gully' as I call it. Second bet would be at Eberhadrt and First - also staffed by Mexicans but a little more mainstream than the former. Have never seen it at mexican grocers but I know not to look at the beer section at those stores.
If anybody finds it I'd be interesting in hearing about it. And what it's alcohol content is :-) (gotta make it worth my while!)
