Dear God was this good!!

From Manos de Maiz’s website:

“For us, corn is much more than just a commodity, for us it means family and tradition. At manos de maíz we source blue (conico) and white (bolita) heritage corn grown and harvested by Purepecha farmers. They have formed a network of 100 farmers whose families have worked the land for centuries and have passed their farming knowledge from one generation to another.

Taste tradition in a new way, try our maizope, a thick open faced tortilla made fresh by hand and served with our original recipes of seasonal toppings made with local ingredients. We have a rotating menu every week, please check our social media for updates.

BRISKET TINGA. Beef brisket, sweet chipotle, avocado, .
CHICKEN MOLE. Chicken breast, house almond mole, black beans, frisee.
BREAKFAST. Eggs, potato hash, green chili.
MUSHROOM. Wild mushrooms, charred poblano, crema.
CEVICHE. Tuna, lemon, habanero, corn, red onions.”

Their Facebook says:

“Making maizopes with Mexican heritage corn. Find us every Saturday at Mt Pleasant Farmers Market and Sunday at Eastern Market.

Ed. Note: I’m pretty sure I was at Eastern Market on a Saturday but I think they said they’ll be switching back to the regular Saturday in Mount Pleasant, Sunday in Eastern Market schedule soon. I plan on stalking them regularly so I’ll be sure to update.

    Mouth watering. Columbia Heights, Mt Pleasamt and especially upper 14th Street have some of the best Mexican food in DC! So lucky.

    I’m a big fan of El Taco Loco as well, which sets up at Eastern Market near the same spot on Saturdays and Sundays.

        Interesting side note, Pocatello has one of the strangest inns I’ve ever stayed in.

    The Phillipino stand in the last photo is great too, especially the Adobo chicken and the Lumpia!
