Personal Confessions About Meat
Now, I need to confess…just a little bit. I’ve been a pescatarian since 2013 and have not had a bite of chicken, pork, or red meat since then. However, one evening Angel looked at me with a bit of disappointment. He said, “You know, mi amor, you are missing the best part of Mérida. It makes me sad that you don’t taste cochinita or pastor or chorizo. These are the foods that bring me the most delight.”
Because I love Angel and food, I decided to give it a try. Starting out slowly, I tried pastor first. WHAT? This is a taste I’ve never had before. The flavor took me by surprise. No manches! I was so excited that I tried chorizo next. Admittedly, this was a little scary for me due to the fact it was street food chorizo. I started off slowly as I don’t know how my body is going to react to certain foods. But, after just a few bites I didn’t have a reaction so I took a few more and stopped. I definitely didn’t want to overdo it like I had done when I tried a marquesita for the first time and made myself sick.
Next was cochinita. Unfortunately, I did overdo it on this one. For this reason, I became extremely hot after a huge, delicious, juicy meal of cochinita tacos from Hermana Republica. Not quite the meat sweats, but close enough. Then, I began craving a burger. This was quite a surprise to me as I have not had a burger for many, many years. Even so, Mérida is a gastronomic destination so why wouldn’t they have exceptional burgers too?
So, let’s get to it and find the best burgers in Mérida.
