Oufstionable Delicacies Served at a Recent lta-nquet at Philadelphia. At each guest's plate a menu card was placed!5 The cards were beautifully di'corated by the Mexican artists. Some of the cards were decorated with minia ture birds made of gay feathers. Othei cards were artistically gotten up with straw work woven about the corners, and below on all the cards was printed in Spanish the following: CaI?o Mfxicano. Arroz Seco. Tortillas. Puchero Mole c!e Guajolote. Ensala. Frijoles Frutas. Pulque. Tamales. Chocolate A good many of the guests thought "Cahlo Mexicano" meant cold Mexican and they were wondering how he would be served, when little teacups filled with greasy soup were brought on. Mexican soup is more like the drippings from roast beef than anv thing else. The proper way to get rid of the soup is to drink it. The Mexicans did.. The American guests did not. They smelled it and smiled. Plates containing boiled rice mixed with boiled carrots and hard-boiled eggs chopped line, were next. That mixture was called "Arroz seco.,', The rice was. very red, having been stained in the boiling by the carrots. Some liked it. -"Tortillas" followed a flat corn cake that looked like pale boarding-house buckwheat cakes, the kind boarders in arrears usually get. The tortillas were made of crushed corn, which was ground into meal upstairs. The process is to lay the corn on a stone and roll it with a stone bar until it be comes meal. The tortillas are baked on little sheets of tin over charcoal fires. The Mexicans rolled the cakes up into rolls, first spreading salt on them. Then they ate them much the sambas an American would nibble at a lady-finger. "Puchero," which came next, was made of fried cabbage, goat meat, fried c arrots and fried bananas, and is known as a "Mexican-Irish. stew." "Ensala" was composed of lettuce spread thickjy with sweet oil. Mixed in the lettuce there were onions chopped fine and a good deal of garlic. Ac company'n; the salad on the same dish was stewed-veal stuffed with almonds. There was a dish served which was not on the 'lenu card. It was called "Chili ti.ro." It is to Mexicans what a soft-iiell crab is to an American. Greer peppers- were hollowed out and the sell was tilled with chopped chicken with a few raisins mixed in it. The pepper was then dipped Into batter and fried in a pan of hot lard. This dish was very much in favor. Every body nearly took to the "frijoles," chocolate colored beans. They were very tender and were dressed with a sauce that was very plat able. The "frijole" has quite as great a reputation in Mexico as the baked bean has in Boston. The most unique dish served was the "tamales," a croquette made of corn meal, raisirfs, nuts and frnits. It is boiled in a corn husk and looks a good deal like a boiled pig s foot at a distance when removed from the corn husk. tyMolcde Guajolote." The mystery of turkey was a fricasse of that bird with a vegetable gravy. The gravy was principally hot fat and red pepper, and every body who ate the gravy asked foi we to soothe their burning tongues. The Mexicans smiled and ate the gravy Jrith a relish, dipping their bread in it. The Mexican wine "pulque" was served to the guests in small wine glasses. It looks like milk and tastes like bakers' yeast. It is to the Mexican what bock wer is to the German. It is the juice the maguey plant, a species of century plant. The maguey plant takes seven years to mature. At maturity it about seven feet high. Then the central stalk is cut off at the base and the juice of the plant is sucked trough a gourd and carried off bv the Natives in skins. The plant yields bnit f-ur. ons every u&y loi two v-v inrev it i b Ar . Soi t ' juice is put. into jars i:i 1 allowed to fennenl for - Then the pulqv i A'Mexicau can drjnfc. wthcufc;' becoming in- a.
