Pozole is a revered dish in the Mexican community, and El Menudazo has one of the city’s best. The broth is rich, hearty and robust, perfect for warding off hangovers, colds or the impending apocalypse, and it’s chock-full of meaty goodness. But be forewarned: This tiny shop on Lake Mead is only open Friday through Sunday. And when it runs out of food, that’s it until next week, so get there early.

El Menudazo 100 E. Lake Mead Blvd., 336-3334. Friday-Sunday, 7 a.m.-8 p.m.
