TRIPAS ARE THE NEW ASADA: THE CRISPIEST TRIPITA TACOS IN L.A. AND O.C IN 2020 901 Club Junior Member Joined: Aug 24, 2017 Messages: 11,961 Likes Received: 20,761 Jul 24, 2020 #1 Must be Foodie Friday. Here's another thread. Comments, omissions, etc., welcome. ++++++++++ We noticed something recently. More and more, the tripa taco has begun to attract the hearts and stomachs of many throughout L.A.’s taco-stratosphere. Some, like our resident senior staff fotógrafo and graphic designer foo Erwin Recinos, say the best way to judge an establishment’s taco is by how seriously they take their tripas and after doing the work. We agree. Translated from Spanish to English on most menus as simply “guts,” tripas is the small beef intestine. Not to be confused with tripe, which is the often gummier offal that makes up menudo. To Recinos’ point, the process that goes into preparing and properly cleaning tripas can say a lot about a restaurant. Rush it and its notorious musk will be extremely pronounced. However, take your time to properly clean and break them down, and its deeply tasting flavors can be downright glorious.... https://www.lataco.com/tripas-la-oc/ SoCalN8tiv likes this.
