Description: There's a lot more to street food than hot dog and pretzel stands. On the roads of Mexico, from Pueblo to Oaxaca, you'll find savory tacos, plates of crispy-but-tender carnitas, sweet churros, and many more dishes bursting with flavor.
The mouth-watering dishes served at Dos Caminos and included here reflect the core of Mexican street food: it is tasty, unpretentious, and meant for sharing with family and friends. From stylish couples enjoying beef tacos from a cart, to day laborers standing at a counter over a plastic plate of carnitas, everyone loves this most accessible form of Mexican food.
Street food is hardly fast food. While shortcuts can be taken in Mexican cooking, there is great pride and history in the foods found in taco stands and market stalls. Many of these dishes, in fact, are really "slow foods" that are braised and stewed over time to allow their complex flavors to develop. They have been celebrated for centuries. Among those included are Estofa de Carne de Res en Biera (Chile and Beer-Braised Brisket), Frijoles Borrachos (Drunken Beans),and the much-beloved Cajeta (Goat's Milk Caramel).
Chef Stark's recipes transform dishes from a nibble on the street to a sit-down meal. She emphasizes that even when adapting a dish, she remains true to the spirit of the vibrant,colorful cuisine of Mexican streets that so many Dos Caminos customers love.
