We should meet sometimes for lox and bagels and a cup of coffee at the Einstein Bros. on Breaker and 183.

What are Italian vermicelli noodles doing in a Mexican Soup???
Does Mexican Cuisine not have their own version of noodles?
Come to think of it, I've never seen any kind of noodles in any kinds of Mexican dishes.
