Taqueria del Barrio offering Mexican turducken, tamales for Thanksgiving, drag brunch


Well, this isn't something you see every day: Taqueria del Barrio  the Mexican spot at 821 Upshur, is offering a Mexican take on turducken, the Thanksgiving food where a turkey is stuffed with a duck that has been stuffed with a chicken. Wow. I guess in Spanish it would be a pavpatollo, or something.

Taqueria del Barrio's version, however, has turkey around a pork loin wrapped around chorizo, which sounds pretty awesome. You can buy it by the pound from now until Nov. 20, plus tamales, another Christmas staple. Might be good for Thanksgiving proper or Friendsgiving. They're also offering it in the restaurant from Nov. 24-26.

They're also doing a drag brunch on Nov. 18, which sounds fun. Read on for the details:
Drag Brunch – Saturday, November 18

Reservations are encouraged with one seating at 10am and another at 1pm. Guests can order from a fixed $25 menu including the choice of either a brunch entrée or three of Taqueria del Barrio’s signature tacos, as well as a brunch cocktail. Reserve a table by calling 202-723-0200 or visiting www.taqueriadelbarrio.com  
Thanksgiving at Taqueria del Barrio 
Spice up your Thanksgiving table this year, and let Taqueria del Barrio do some of the work for you in the process. Chef and owner Anna Bran-Leis is preparing a Mexican turkey roulade (her take on turducken), wrapping turkey around pork loin, which is wrapped around house-made chorizo, resulting in a savory, showstopper Thanksgiving entrée. 
The Mexican turkey roulade can be ordered in advance by phone at 202-723-0200. It is priced at $16 per pound (each pound feeds two people), and is offered alongside homemade cheese poblano tamales for $3.99 each. Orders can be placed now through Monday, November 20, and all orders will be available for pickup from the restaurant from noon to close on Wednesday, November 22.  
Although Taqueria del Barrio is closed on November 23 for the holiday, guests can also enjoy the Mexican turkey roulade as a special in the dining room Friday, November 24 through Sunday, November 26. The roulade will be $13.99 and comes with a cheese poblano tamale, as well as cranberry and orange salsa.
