Kristina Cottone performs in-car, eats delicious Mexican food from El Metro Catina by Yak Channel Podcast Network published on 2018-04-12T01:58:51Z SPONSORED BY BOOST MOBILE Kristina Cottone (along with Honey & the 45s guitarist Jon Gould) joins the show for a stunning in-car performance and a magnificent Mexican dinner from El Metro Cantina (1959 Chicago Avenue, Chicago). Kristina and Jon play two songs in the Mazda 3: A solo Kristina song ("Ukelele Summer Love Song") and a Honey and the 45s song ("Come Back"). We're then joined by El Metro Cantina co-owner Dan Andrews, who fills the car with El Metro menu items that the band and I will be talking about for months to come. Please visit El Metro, and see Kristina live. She's doing a solo show on April 21 at Gman Tavern, and playing with Honey and the 45s April 28 at Subterranean. In this episode, we discuss: Honey and the 45s' history, starting as a folk acoustic trio and winding its way through its current sound ("it's bluesy, it's soulful... "). The new Honey and the 45s song "Speak," which took shape when Kristina jumped in an Uber. El Metro co-owner Dan jumped in the car with a TON of delicious food. His story about meeting one of the future co-owners is like something out of a storybook. How authentic are El Metro's recipes? They flew two people in to ensure the food's authenticity. The tacos were gorgeous: A gigantic tilapia taco ("it's really a popular taco for us"), a rajas taco (poblanos & cotija cheese), the El Metro taco (bacon, dates and ribeye steak), the picadillo taco (ground beef, cotija cheese and bacon), Alambre (chicken, turkey ham, peppers, beets and carrots). El Metro's version of elotes which I want to go back for RIGHT NOW. The parking meter-reader comes by and I have to reload my app. Veggie soy chorizo flautas: Awesome. El Metro proudly provides napkins with every meal. The merits of a good horchata.
