A friend had informed us prior to sampling what exactly these buttery white grains were. Had we not known, we would have just found them to be pleasant, nutty things similar to cooked, toasted risotto. We ate them at the San Angel Inn, which serves up escamole with fresh guacamole and corn tortillas.
Have you tried escamole? What did you think? And what's the weirdest thing you've eaten? Let us know in the comments below.
