Favorite Menudo Rojo? Healthy? Who Knew!

slowcoooked | Jan 22, 201208:34 AM

I'm surprised to not have found much on this site dealing with Menudo. I'm on the hunt for the red version. I can't seem to get enough unctuous villi - laden beef gut in a steamy red broth with a touch of citrus, oregano, and hominy. Turns out that tripe/stomach might be the healthiest fatty textured beef part out there; surprisingly it's a relatively low fat, low calorie carnivorous option. Servings are on the order of 250 calories. I've enjoyed it all over town, and need the feet. Where's the favorites?

I'm a huge fan of the versions at Los Pinos in Lakeway, Taqueria Zacatlan on Anderson Mill, and now my new favorite at Little Mexico on S. 1st.

Also, who has tried the back of the van / truck soups I see near 183 and Peyton Gin and elsewhere? They serving up menudo? I hate to be a wuss, but I need a bit of encouragement.
