In praise of pozole, and where to find a good bowl on Sunday

Ah yes, nothing like a steaming spoonful of pozole on a lazy Sunday morning. The spicy broth is just enough to help you sweat out some toxins if you’re still recovering from Saturday night shenanigans. A sprinkling of lime and cilantro over the top helps awaken the senses, and the mix of hominy and pork (or other meats) is just enough to get you feeling full without venturing into bloated territory. Add some radish and shredded cabbage, plus a couple of piping corn tortillas, and you’ll be properly fueled for the rest of the day. No wonder pozole ranks as a particularly classic New Year’s Day food.
