Barbacoa Estilo Hidalgo

6131 Lake June Place, 214-600-3240,

6 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday only. $

Barbacoa de borrego $2

Pancita $2

Garbanzo bean soup $6.50

Just don't forget those garbanzo beans that steeped in lamb drippings for half a day, which join soft rice in a rich and murky consomé. Sitting down with a bowl of this soup is a calming meditation. This is slow food. That's why it's relatively quiet in this dining room, even when all the tables are full. Everyone is contemplating the simple roast meats, soups and tortillas they bought for next to nothing, while not a single morsel tastes concessionary. You can feed a whole family here for less than it costs to fill up a car. And they're parked outside in droves.

at there this morning. Exactly as you describe. Hiked in the trinity forest, then tacos with a coke. Best meal in ages.

@scottreitz the lamb sounds insane, but having to add salt concerns me...

This looks like the real deal straight from Guanjuato.

@RoadrunnerEats it's not a reason to not go. It's a subtle adjustment.
