La EsquinaIf you have the opportunity, I urge you to visit La Esquina and enjoy a delicious taco. I don't usually get excited about food, but I just got back from my third visit in three days.

I am by no means a restaurant reviewer, so I'm not gonna try to describe how delicious the tacos are. But you don't have to take my word for it. I've been with my friend Kate, my other friend Kate, and Kate's husband, and they all agree with me on this.

During Thursday's visit, Kate noticed a huitlacoche quesadilla on the menu & informed me that huitlacoche was, in fact, corn smut. I thought it odd that eating diseased vegetables was considered a good idea, but she assured me it was tasty. I'll let you know.

The conversation went downhill from there, as she revealed that in Chicago it was possible to procure taco de ojo. That is just what you'd expect it to be: a taco with a cow's eyeball in it. Also, apparently, brains. Irrationally I thought that that should be illegal. But apparently it's available in Santa Barbara and Philadelphia as well. We have yet to find a purveyor in New York, and to be honest, I've stopped looking.

On my first visit to La Esquina I tried a michelada. That would be beer, chili, and lime on ice, with salt on the rim of the glass. It's terrible, and I heartily recommend it to everyone who values things that are terrible.

Bien dicho.

I dream in tacos now.

(Sorry for making you squeamish with the eyeball taco talk, but that's the kind of horror I couldn't keep to myself.)

It was worth being freaked out in order gain access to a tool with which I can freak other people out. So I had an afternoon skewed and my dreams haunted. Now I can skew afternoons and haunt dreams. ¡Viva el taco de ojo!
