Food is the center of everything


Veronica Perez, Senior Writer

Food. Everyone loves food. Food is something you eat. A substance consisting essentially of protein, carbohydrate, fat, and other nutrients used in the body of an organism to sustain growth and vital processes and to furnish energy. There are different types of food. For example, there are different kinds such as Mexican, Chinese, Japanese, American and many more. The most famous type of food would be pizza and pasta. They both originated from Italy. Each country has their own famous dish. Although some people are picky eaters, there are many things people have in common. For example, in my family we eat almost everything. But birria tacos are something my family makes a lot and enjoys it the most.

Birria is a Mexican dish from the state of Jalisco. It is a traditional ancestral soup or stew made from a combination of chili pepper-based goat meat adobo, garlic, cumin, bay leaves, and thyme, and cooked at a low heat. Birria tacos, if you haven’t heard of them yet all over social media and the internet, is traditionally an addictive sweet, sour, slightly spicy, and utterly savory Mexican beef stew that’s slow cooked until the beef is tender and fall-apart juicy and delicious.

Birria made at home is the best!  However, there are a number of places that you can get birria from.  According to Yelp, there are some great places that serve some of the most delicious birria.  For example, Birria El Rey, located at 1015 25th St., is one of the highest rated places in San Diego.  One of the dishes they serve are quesabirria tacos, which are hearty and juicy. You don’t necessarily need the consume since there’s ample amounts of juice still on the beef. Slightly crunchy and rich in flavor, these are a must try. But one of the most delicious dishes is their birria ramen.  The noodles are mixed with their beef consomme, and it is really good.

Food is the third most important thing for living beings to provide energy and development, maintain life, or stimulate growth after air and water. It is one of the most complicated sets of chemicals. Food plays an important role in the promotion of health and disease prevention.  Food is also good to share with family.
