El Naranjo

We went to the theater to see The Girl Who Played with Fire. These films have been such great adaptations of the books… and the casting is so perfect! The faces I see on screen are so perfectly Lisbeth Salander, Mikael Blomkvist, Jan Bublanski. I hear they’re going to make an American film adaptation of the books, which makes me sad… the Swedish versions are already so perfect! Also, I think I need to learn Swedish. Right after I learn French. And Italian.

I just realized that it’s August 3 and I haven’t posted new tunes for the month on 8Tracks. Oh well, maybe September. Or October. Or November. 🙂

A few ph0tos from a dinner a while back at El Naranjo, a Oaxacan food cart on Rainey Street:

Molotes stuffed with chorizo…


Cochinita pibil tacos…

Chicken tinga tacos…

  1. I love that last photo! The focus is so perfect. What does chochinita pibil tacos mean? They look yummy 😉

    1. Thanks! Cochinita pibil is slow-roasted pork that’s usually marinated in orange or other citrus and annatto seed, which makes it an orange/reddish color. It’s often served with pickled onions, and it’s usually really good.

  2. That avocado looks good.

    1. I do love a good avocado…
