If menudo keeps folks at bay with its use of tripe and cow stomach, pozole is perhaps the easier one to swallow for some (though we'll never turn away a bowl of the stuff). For this pork-based soup turn to Rosario's Mexican Café y Cantina.
Unlike other shops in town that save this hearty stew for the weekend, you can ladle a bowl of this fiery but delicate pozole whenever you damn well please.
Guajillo chiles give this particular pozole, found daily at both locations of this SA favorite, its crimson red hue. Pork butt is the star of the show, but the broth also shines with its use of dried oregano, onion and a whole head of garlic. It certainly doesn't skimp on the layers of flavor.
When the temperatures drop this winter, head to Rosario's and pile on the garnishes — fresh cabbage, cilantro, tortilla chips, radishes, scallions — and don't forget the lime to help cut the soup's richness.
