Birria Tacos

This common Mexican dish has made its round on social media. Creators have tried to make the dish, from TikTok to YouTube. The flavorful tacos are filled with beef, chilis, and more.

Nature’s Cereal

Are you wanting to try a food trend that’s easy to recreate? “Nature’s cereal” is so easy, you probably have the ingredients in your home already. Musician Lizzo even hopped on the trend. The dish consists of coconut water, fruit, and the optional ice cube. It does mirror a smoothie sans blender. But it’s a great way to bring fruit to your breakfast.

Fufu and Egusi Soup

Like many viral foods, they’re not new dishes. Fufu and egusi soup is actually a common dish in West African cultures, particularly Nigeria and Ghana. But it suddenly gained traction online. The Fufu Challenge is now a trend where people unfamiliar with the cuisine taste it for the first time. If you want a traditional experience, check out Accra Restaurant in Harlem!
