Andrew Zimmern’s Family Meals

Slide 9 of 12

Los Angeles

“I caught up with food blogger Javier Cabral and his family for Mexican food in East LA. They do a killer menudo (the spicy tripe soup, not the Ricky Martin boy group), corn smut (an edible fungus that grows on corn, also called huitlacoche) and a salad made with cactus paddles and grasshoppers. They make everything is from scratch, including blue corn tortillas.”
