So real in fact, that I cannot find any reference to these things anywhere!
After visiting the Mayan ruins in Tulum, while waiting for the bus, I noticed a lady walking around with a container full of these egg shaped nuggets. Within seconds she was mobbed by the local drivers, so I wanted in on the action. I bought some–and omg, they were gooooood!
It's some kind of barley, wheat thing with chorizo inside and onions on top, which made the perfect snack. I tried to get more information online, and through some of my Mexican friends, ...no luck. The locals tried to teach me the name, something like 'Kevee'?!
All I can say is, if you see them, EAT THEM. And have one for me, too! And if you know what they are, please tell me ; )
