At Hernandez Macias #56, El Tucan turned out to be a real find in many other ways.
I hesitated when I walked in the door because this was Guy Fieri’s (Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives) definition of a real dive ( a hole in the wall, not necessary speaking about the way they prepare their food).
Fact of the matter was the smell of French fries drew me in. They were REAL French fries and I stood in the entry, next to the long stove, watching the cook cut them. These were the first fresh-cut fries I’ve had since I’ve been in San Miguel. Did I tell you that French Fries are my favorite food? I was impressed.
After having the Torta Milanesa Pollo, which was delicious, I decided to go back the next day to try the hamburger. Guy Fieri would give this place a huge thumbs up for the food. I actually can’t remember when a burger tasted so darn good. Alejandro, the owner, grinds fresh hamburger daily from flank steak. He worked in Illinois for many years and truly knows fresh food.
That night, I decided to try my hand and make a Torta for dinner. I used only the best ingredients:

We’ll see when I travel to Puebla which one is better.
