While I picked up some blood sausages for the Sunday Supper, I stopped in at La Isla Cuchifritos for their Mondongo soup that I saw two people at the counter eating. This is the same place I had those boiled pig’s ears. The Mondongo soup had big chunks of pig’s feet with rubbery skin and bones, tripe and plantain. This big bowl (pictured below) was the small at only $2.75. Much of it didn’t seem to be very edible, at least for me. However those two people next to me left with empty bowls. Did they eat the bones and cartilage? Maybe I should have second thoughts on ordering what the locals are eating, especially after I saw one guy order a whole bowl of white boiled tripe. Hm. Now I am curious how that tastes.
