“El Fenix Restaurant is a Dallas institution open since 1913. I had my first job waiting tables there and had a bowl of this soup everyday. I won't bother you with the details of what I had to do to get this coveted recipe out of temperamental Chef Jorge... but it is illegal in about half of the states.”
