This is the Christmas menu at ‘El Torito’ … in case you have to celebrate there

Christmas Y New Year are celebrations that could make us go for drinks and end up locked in ‘The bull‘; however, this does not mean that they can limit us to enjoying a good dinner.

The Center for Penitentiary Sanctions, Administrative Sanctions and Social Integration has already announced its menu for December 24 and 31.

Turkey? Leg? Romeritos? Cod? No. The menu for Christmas Eve consists of pork in pineapple sauce, elbow soup with cream and ham, apple salad with peaches and the traditional poche of fruits for Christmas.

For New Years, the food list consists of pork in apple sauce accompanied by green spaghetti, potatoes with ham and cheese, apple salad with pineapple and fruit punch.

This year more than 27 thousand servings from the special menu in 13 prisons, the five specialized centers for adolescents in conflict with the law and the Casa de Medio Camino.

The Penitentiary System of Mexico City has 17 kitchens distributed in the different centers, all with the certification granted by the Secretaries of Tourism and Health of the federal Government. In addition, they have quality standards required in storage and food processing, as well as high hygiene and quality parameters, according to the authorities.

Hazael Ruíz Ortega, Undersecretary of the Penitentiary System of the CDMX Government Secretariat, reported that they will apply all hygienic and sanitary measures to avoid COVID-19 infections, and detailed that two bedrooms were adapted in order to isolate those who present symptoms of the respiratory disease.
