Weird Food Blog #3: Interesting Mexican Stuff With Chile and Tomato and stuff



YAY! Another food blog! Broke on a Saturday night and nothing to do but eat intriguing stuff!

So -- you folks in other part of the country realize that Los Angeles has a large Mexcian population, right? This is awesome from a foodie point of view, because, for the most part, Mexican food fucking rules. You think you have it good in Minnesota with your Little Tijuana's or whatever? THINK AGAIN, suckers.

Because guess what? I can go to my local grocery store and get BUDWEISER WITH CLAMATO, LIME AND SALT. That's right -- Budweiser with Tomato, Clam Juice, Lime and Salt. And so I did -- in my one hand, there is Budweiser Chelada, available at your local 7-11 store, and in my other is Lays Chile y Limon flavor potato chips.

(Note to Univision watchers: this is different than the CARTOON SERIES "Con Chile y Limon," which stars an anthropomorphic chile and an anthropomorphic lime.")



First off the chips. Happy to say they're delightful -- just the right amount of spicy, and the lime flavor provides a SLIGHT twang. Not as good as ketchup chips, but damn close -- a good regional foodstuff. Thanks, Lay's!



And now onto the Chelada. That face looks like I'm hating it, but that's really a look of -- "Hmmmmm, what the hell is THIS?" Because I'm serious: THIS STUFF IS DELICIOUS. Its like a Bloody Mary In A Can Made With Beer, and Trix and I are currently fighting over who gets more of it. And you have to understand: in the freezer is a bottle of grape-flavored vodka that tastes like kool-aid, and normally I'm like a moth to the flame of that stuff, but this is REALLY GOOD.

So in summation: CHELADA. Try it.

Yeah, I'm all over the Chelada, because I believe that beer and tomato juice will put you right in the world. MMMMM.

at all the tacqueria/tiendas here in portland (even in the regular grocery stores but in the hispanic section) they always have an ice cream cooler up front. if you look at all the ice cream bars they sorta look like they'd be normal (lime, orange, cherry) but i started rootin around one day and found almost all the flavors are extra awesome. they have coconut, guava, papaya, apple, tamarind, cucumber-chile, pineapple and my other favorite, sangria. its so tarty grapey/citrusy but with a hint of cinnamon throughout. damn!

Being Mexican and all, I make really DOPE homemade cheladas. Ones that you and Trixi MUST experience. Oh and even though you may not be mexican, living in LA, it's going to rub off on you real bad ey.

Bad joke #1:
Q. What did the chola say when the house fell on top of her?

A. Get off me Homes!

Your weird food blogs have led me to eat at weird times of the day.
After reading your recommendation of that Lays spicy creation I went overboard on a similar brand of potato product. I am now feeling very sick and woozy.

Oooohhhhhhhhh Mexicali food I MISS YOU! If you guys ever make it down to San Diego, go to: any of the -bertos drive-thru/restaurants (Albertos, Alibertos, Robertos, Humbertos, etc, etc), El Zarape, and La Posta. I know there's tons more (duh, SoCal). I guess for now, I'll just have to settle for Little T's.

belsum said...

*snort* Little T's is decidedly not Mexican!

I saw that Clamato beer in the gas stations last time we were in Texas. Looks rancid to me.

Jon Hunt said...

It looked rancid to me, too, which is why we were so delighted that it WASN'T!

I'm de-lurking here, but I wanted you to know that I grew up in ND all my life, and eventually came to love Clamato and beer (can't beat it with Budweiser). It is served in the bars all the time. It was only when I moved to MN that people looked at me as if I was an alien or something when I asked for one. People also enjoy a few olives in their red beers.

I liked the Chelada because it seemed to be heavy on the Clamato, which is just the way I likes it!

I've tried Chelada. I have tried everything you could think of. I'm a famous movie star so I have known about Chelada since like forever.

Jeff Goldblum said...

Steve Zahn stole my underwear and won't give them back. He also has a weak bladder.

steve zahn said...

Jesus, I can't go anywhere without Goldblum following me around. What a douche bag. Hey Jeff, what amazing movies have you been in? I can't remember. Ha! I was in Saving Silverman. Top that.

Jeff Goldblum said...

Oh you were in an Apatow flick! Oh my god! Have you worked with David Cronenberg, you little upstart?
Or Wes Anderson? Or did you feature on Mr Show? Hmm.. no you didn't. You starred in Dr. Dolittle 2... *chuckle* You know who did star in all of those incredibly impressive projects? You guessed it-- Jeff fucking Goldblum.

Jeff Goldblum said...

You were in an Apatow production... hasn't about half of Hollywood featured in a "Produced by Judd Apatow"? I think so! Real actors don't need the pay packet buddy-- they aim for true quality. I'm just back from my run in the West End with Kevin Spacey. You're just back from the 7/11 to purchase flavoured condoms so your member isn't so damn ridiculous.

Jeff Goldblum said...

I think I now know what my new column is going to be called-- "STEVE ZAHN IS A TALENTLESS FUCKWIT!" Sorry buddy but the truth smarts.

steve zahn said...

Well...you are like old, and Earth Girls are Easy, was, well actually that was a pretty funny movie. I'm famous. Tom Hanks knows me. I rule. You're funny looking.

Jeff Goldblum said...

I can afford expensive cigars and fine brandy. You can afford three cans of bud and three rollies that you got off of a homeless saxophone player. I also notice you're not denying my claims... tut tut.
Do you still have that birth mark in the shape of Christopher Cross?

Jeff Goldblum said...

Tom Hanks:

"Steve Zahn? He's a douch-bag. Not like that sensual dynamo, Jeff Goldblum That guy is awesomeest."

Jeff Goldblum said...

Oh, wait a minute. My bleary eyes have deceived me, for some unknown reason I thought you were bragging about "Saving Sarah Marshall" but no you were talking about 2001's "Saving Silverman".....

















That's even worse man. Give me a call, maybe my agent can hook you up.
