Andrew Zimmern on El Taco de Mexico

Andrew Zimmern of Bizarre Foods on the Travel Chanel has been shooting for his show in Denver this week. One of the segments focuses on Mexican food. He visited Chubby's earlier today but what he was really looking forward to was an authentic Mexico City-like experience. That is what he got at the mother of all Mexican food institutions in Denver, El Taco de Mexico. Zimmern sampled the tacos. "The tongue is great and the tacos al pastor are so sweet," he commented during the shoot of his show. What he mostly loved was the menudo, a Denver favorite and comforting traditional Mexican broth made of beef stomach. "This is what happens when someone's mom cooks," he said to the daughter of the original El Taco de Mexico owner.

Zimmern has been in Denver for a few days and will continue exploring the food of the Mile High City until Thursday. Sightings are expected at some of Denver's most adventurous gastropubs.
