    Default What's the deal with Mexican food?

    Nachos are the only thing that doesn't fall to bits when you try to eat it. Tacos? One bite and the shell cracks in half and the contents fall out the bottom. Who invented this food?

    I had my first real Mexican food recently at a small restaurant called 'The Mission' in Oxford, run by mexicans. Their Burritos didn't fall apart, were reasonably priced and the vegetables looked reasonably fresh and the meat didn't look synthetic.

    The sauces weren't as spicey as I was expecting, but tasty enough. Inexpensive considering the use of real ingredients and portion size. Not highly developed cuisine so far, but good value snack food.

    This much is true. The Mexican food in California and the South West is far better than anything in Australia.

    The most authentic Mexican tacos I've ever had were made with a double layer of two small soft tortillas. About two thirds the size of what you get in the chain restaurants, and without the overload of worthless greens/cheese.

    Note to Cali folks: I grew up visiting my dad in AZ for half my childhood so I'm not just blowing smoke.

    faggot haven't you ever heard of the wonders that is the fajita?

    they bring a sizzling pan full of goodness to your table, hand you a stack of flours and you build it yourself.

    Is Indian (as in South Asian) food widespread in the US? I'm sure you can get it in the big cities, but would people in smaller cities or outlying towns know what curries taste like ?

    I get a vague impression that Indian food fills the same niche for brits that mexican food does for Americans.
