I received a package from East Los Angeles...late last night.
A special delivery from La Estrella.
6 Carne Asada Sopes.
Yum....they will be eaten slowly....so that I can maximise my time with them.
(But this is the story of the first two)
Actually the last one, the first one....was too graphic to show....let's just say it was so fast, that it did not even know what was coming.
Carne asada....Refried beans....lettuce and Dry white cheese....
(This is what was left of the first victim)
They had sour cream.......yuck....but that was easily resolved by taking a spoon and taking the top part of the lettuce off.....they put all kinds of cheese...so I just shook off the excess...and added it to my sope....
A piece of heaven , not just because of how good they taste....but the memories of a world that not many people know about.....but I miss Los Angeles.....but the sopes just ease the heartache a little one bite at a time.
3/4 's gone (The stuff on the side is Grease (Flavor) and melted styrofoam , Don't eat that stuff no matter how good it looks....you will regret it later.
How to eat a sope without a fork and knife: I did not have a fork today so I had to use my hands to eat these sopes......
1) You wait for the sope to cool off, because you don't want to get Carne Asada burn.
2) Then you take all the extra crap off ....lettuce...cheese...etc...etc....
3) You take the sope and you wrap it in your hand like a taco.
4) Then you drop the extra meat on the plate (Styrofoam) so that you can eat it later.
5)Then you eat it. The Sope will fall apart, so watch you clothes...
Hope you enjoyed this lesson :)
