Mexico City, D.F. Street Food for your Home
Need a quick salad for dinner tonight? Follow Cafe Drake's lead, inspired by scrumptious street food consumed in Mexico City years ago (several times, over two decades), and peel and slice into match sticks 1 jicama. Sprinkle with olive oil, dust heavily with cayenne pepper and salt and finally, douse excessively with lime juice (at least 2 limes' worth). The resulting salty and sour side dish is sure to please all but the most timid of palettes. Fire eaters such as ourselves will appreciate the addition of a few sliced green chilies!
