Pix From Cholulita Bella Deli in Brooklyn
The well-stuffed carne enchilada cemita -- reeking of papalo leaves -- at Cholulita Deli.
This week, Counter Culture slides into Cholulita Bella Deli, under the J and M tracks on the border of Bushwick and Bed-Stuy. The food is fabulous, and cheap, too, mostly representing an unreconstructed take on the urbanized food of the state of Puebla. There's a new dining room, too.
Available all week (not just on weekends), the tripe soup is a mellow hangover remedy.
The huitlacoche (corn smut) quesadilla oozing black ...
Our crew one evening chows down.
The hearty soup called mole de olla is a Pueblan fave. It comes with a pair of tostadas.
Shrimp Mexican-style is not as spicy as it looks.
But beware the heat of the tinga huarache!
