Pipo's Burros

¡Hola, Lector@s! El día de hoy les traigo un lugar al que fui ayer después del Cervantino en Hermosillo. Estuvo bastante padre (el Cervantino) así que les recomiendo que vayan los días que quedan (hasta el Domingo).

Esta es una carreta de burros que se encuentra sobre la calle Nayarit y casi esquina con la Enrique García Sánchez o la Guerrero, no recuerdo bien, pero muy sencillo tomen la Nayarit desde el Rodríguez y a su mano derecha luego luego va a estar.

El lugar pues es un como estacionamiento y ahí se pone la carreta esta. Tiene sus sillas y sus mesas y así. Por estacionamiento no hay de que preocuparse pues hay algunos lugarcitos a los lados o incluso en el mismo estacionamiento aunque quedaría muy cerca de las mesas (el carro).

No conozco el horario pero supongo que es en la tarde-noche (en horario de burro percherón) y muy probablemente descanse los martes como la inmensa mayoría de los burros percherones.

Pedí un burro campechaneado (con carne asada y adobada) y es realmente muy rico. Tiene aguacate, tomate, cebolla asada y bien reportado. El completo cuesta $60 pesos y haciendo cuentas, la bebida cuesta $10 pesos. ¿Qué hay de bebida? Lo usual: sodas.

Con el completo quedé bien satisfecho en cantidad y en calidad.

El trato es bastante amable por parte del señor de la carreta. Te ponen varias salsas, crema, cebolla morada (cosa que no había visto en ningún burro) y chiles en escabeche.

El lugar pues como les digo es un estacionamiento. No está sucio pero así que hay dicho: "Mira qué pulcro" pues tampoco. Está normal, jaja, como cualquier estacionamiento.

Sí les recomiendo mucho esta carreta, está bastante decente la comida, muy rica y un buen trato. Y el precio también se me hace atractivo considerando el costo-beneficio. Así que saliendo del evento de hoy (que es una orquesta típica argentina) se pueden ir a esa carreta a echar la platicada y a cenar rico.

Sale!!

As a Texan planning a trip to Hermosillo, I'm finding your blog a great resource. I'm looking forward to trying the "dogos de Alfredo"!

Alfredo dijo...

You won't be disappointed!

A few years ago I invited a person from Phoenix to "my" dogos and he was delighted!

Thanks for visiting this blog! I'm glad it has been helpful to you!

Hope your stay is long enough to try out all the great menu Hermosillo has to offer!

Thanks for your comments and enjoy your stay!

Cheers!!

I'll be there for about three days. Dogos are just the tip of the iceberg. I'm hoping to try as many specialties of Sonora as I can: tortillas sobaqueras, carne asada, tacos de cabeza, machaca, Bacanora, coyotas, tripitas de leche, frijoles maneados, caldo de queso, burros percherones, etc.

If there are any other specialties I should seek or restaurants, carts, markets, or shops that you consider essential for someone looking for the best food in Hermosillo, I would love to hear your suggestions.

Alfredo dijo...

Your menu seems very complete!

Regarding coyotas, the best ones I've tasted are Coyotas Doña Coyo. They're on No Reeleccion St. very close to the famous Coyotas Doña Maria on the same street in Villa de Seris... but personally I think Doña Coyo's coyotas are better.

For the best tacos de carne asada I've tasted go to Tacos de Armando or known to some people as "Tacos de la Prevo" ("La Prevo" is a well known nearby school) on Justo Sierra between Gomez Farias and Morelos. Go at night.

And for the rest feel free to explore!

Anónimo dijo...

Thank you for the additional recommendations! I'll be sure to visit both. (Are the shops with coyotas usually open during the day? Would they be open on a Sunday?)

alfredo dijo...

Yes, they are open during the day... not so sure about Sundays though since I've never been there on a Sunday! But I do guess they are open... try going before noon, most businesses that open on sunday close early.

If I can trouble you one more time, Alfredo, what would you recommend as the best grocery store or market in Hermosillo where I can find local and distinctive products (e.g., machaca, chiltepins, etc.)? Also, what would be the best book store to find cookbooks (in Spanish)?

alfredo dijo...

No trouble at all! Indeed!It's called "Abarrotes El Tacupeto".

It's on the corner of Jose Carmelo St. and Reforma St.

That's where my family use to buy machaca. I must confess I'm not a fan of machaca but they say it's the best.

They sell chiltepines, jamoncillos and other regional food there as well.

If you have time you could go to San Pedro. It's a town very near to Hermosillo (like 15 min.) where there are a lot of places to buy tortillas sobaqueras, chiltepines, etc... and you can have a burro de carne con chile (very traditional and very delicious).

I go to this place, it's the last stand of food of San Pedro going to Ures, on the left side of the road before the bridge... I should warn you is not very clean... well, it's not clean at all, haha, full of flies, dirt, etc... but the burros de carne con chile are so delicious! If you think you can handle, definitely try them out!

A mis lectores, jaja, ahi les fue una recomendacion en San Pedro!!

About a bookstore... well, there aren't a lot here in Hermosillo (Very, very regrettably). You can find cookbooks in "Libreria de Cristal". It's on Serdan and Pino Suarez St. in downtown. (Which is a mess because there is a lot of construction going on...)

The other place I guess you can find a good cookbook is the bookstore of Liverpool. Liverpool is a department store, it's on Luis Encinas Blvd. They have a little bookstore and perhaps you can find one there.

If you don't succeed, across the street from Liverpool there is a Sanborn's (some weird sort of cafeteria-deparment store mix... don't eat there, the food is not so good and is expensive and the service is awful!) you can try there too.

If you are looking for mexican curious (I hate the term but that's how everybody calls them) there's a store on the corner of Rosales and Serdan, it's a little expensive because it's for tourists or you can cross the street where some people sell palofierro figurines maybe a little cheaper.

Are you going to Kino or San Carlos(Beaches near to Hermosillo)? Maybe you'll need more days!!

Anónimo dijo...

Thanks for the information on the market and bookstores!

Is there any public transportation to San Pedro? I won't be renting a car on this trip--just walking and taking taxis. It sounds like I should try to make it to San Pedro, though. ("Dirty" doesn't bother me at all. ; ) ) Would I find better food options there during the daytime or at night?

I won't be going to any of the beach towns. It's a short trip, so I doubt I'll even be able to try all the dishes I would like to in Hermosillo.

Should I bother with any of the more expensive steak restaurants, like Sonora Steak, Xochimilco, or Mariachisimo? What would you recommend as the best marisqueria?

alfredo dijo...

Yes, there is public transportation to San Pedro but I really don't know where you can take the bus... And the food there is during the day, in the morning actually.

You can go to those restaurants you mentioned. They are very good if you are planning something more fancy.

Xochimilco is the most traditional and is very near to Coyotas Doña Coyo and opens during the day and afternoon.

Mariachisimo opens during the night (is the night version of Xochimilco) it's more lively and festive.

I've never been to Sonora Steak. But you can go to Palomino's. Is also close to Xochimilco within a normal walking distance. Opens during the night.

About marisqueria I've heard that El Farallon is very good. This restaurant is on Morelos Blvd. heading north in the same plaza as Peter Piper Pizza.... you'll see Peter Piper...

Also you can try "taco fish" (like that: taco fish)! You can find many stands all over the city. They are actually a dish imported from Baja but they are very good. They open in the morning.

Thanks, again, for your help, Alfredo!

alfredo dijo...

Anytime!

You're welcome!

And hope you really enjoy your stay!!

Anónimo dijo...

Thanks, again, for your advice. I've posted a few videos from my trip on YouTube ( http://www.youtube.com/user/DallasFood ), including the "dogos de Alfredo." Can't wait to get back to Hermosillo again!

alfredo dijo...

WOW!!!

You visited almost everything!!

Hope you had a great time! Great videos too!

May I post some links to your videos???

Anónimo dijo...

Feel free to post links. I ate a lot more than is seen in those videos. (If I couldn't see the cooking or food preparation, I didn't bother with the camera.) Special thanks for the recommendations of San Pedro (which I would love to visit again for a longer time), Dona Coyo (whose coyotas were much better than Dona Maria--thinner, flakier, with the piloncillo more caramelized), and Tacos de Armando (where the tacos de carne asada, caramelos, and lorenzas knocked my socks off). Keep up the great work with your blog. I would've had a much harder time finding my way around Hermosillo without your guidance.
