A trip to Dolores Hidalgo always means a stop at Vicente's for comida. Vicente's speciality is carnitas which are a braised pork. There are many recipes and this is but one. Some recipes call for the pork to be cooked in a sauce but I prefer them plain. The meat is cut into chunks and served with beans, tortillas and salsas and of course, a cold cerveza.

Vicente has several restaurants in Dolores Hidalgo but our favorite is the original and largest at Calzada Mariano Balleza #65. There are always people in the restaurant not only at tables but also at the counter for "para levar" take out. And most of the time you will find some musicians to seranade you while you eat.
