Culinary Backstreets: El Trapiche- Home Away from Honduras

At 2 p.m., the lunch rush begins at El Trapiche, a restaurant along Mexico City’s chaotic Avenida Revolución. Two women arrive from a nearby office and ask for the set lunch menu, comida corrida, that El Trapiche serves for 60 pesos (or around $3.30).

“Today we have baleadas,” says Lilian Mendoza Rivera, El Trapiche’s owner and manager.

“Is that like a sope?” one of the women asks, referring to a corn-based Mexican dish, also topped with beans.

“No, they’re better,” says Lilian, “Try it.”
