UFO's in Humbolt Park - need to know about mofo!

stirs-the-pot | Dec 10, 2003 05:45 PM

Last Sunday evening about 8 PM I came upon a food trailer in "Humbled Pork" near Division and Kedzie - already having plans for a heavy dinner (Sak's Ukrainian) I only purchased small portion of chicharron (dry & old tasting).

The thing was filled with UFO's (unidentified fried objects) spherical, ovoid and conical, all were a kind of orangey-brown (annatto?) -- The only things recognizable to this Nortown boy were whole fish (fried of course) and some sad looking lechon (roast pig) which I'm sure they would have fried if they could.

We're these all variations on the mofungo theme? Is there a difference between "mofungo" and "modongo".....
