Mexican Food

River and I at one of the many taco stands. (The cook was nice enough to offer to take the picture)
I love Mexican food. More specifically, I guess, I love American*-style Mexican food, as that was pretty much all I knew...until recently. Mexican-style Mexican food is awesome! Granted they don't have some of the staples of their northern cousins (burritos and chimichangas all seem to be imports to Mexico rather than exports), but the street tacos can't be beat.

Even after eating mostly Mexican food for a month straight (I'll admit I had a hamburger every now and again), I am not even close to tired of anything wrapped in a torilla. Aside from the great gobs tacos and quesadillas I ate, I also got to try a few new things: ceviche tostadas, fruit flavored tamales, and avocado pie. Oh man, the avocado pie at Tacos y Mas in Yelapa really hits the spot. (Add that to your list, Sunset Magazine.)

So unlike Italian food in Italy and Chinese food in China, I rate Mexican food in Mexico as as good as or better than the interpretations I grew up knowing. The food alone is a good enough reason to head south.

Eat any chalupas?

No chalupas, but I did have some gorditas (nothing like their Taco Bell counter parts) and churros (freshly fried right on the street (although the owner didn't want to dump his oil into our gas tank))

I don't know, Mexican food that has been blessed by a talking chihuahua? I'm skeptical.

There is an unbelievable Mexican-style Mexican restaurant in Ballard called Senor Moose. The people who run it are super-friendly, and the food cannot be beat. I've heard great things about their brekky, but I haven't had the opportunity to verify that.

I went on a big quesadilla kick while living in Houston, and I strongly advise you avoid the bacon quesadilla...

There is a story behind the bacon quesadilla that is begging to come out. Let it out, Sean, let it out.

Well, there was definitely a big something that I let out after the bacon quesadilla, but I'll spare you the details.

Wren, I'm going to have to disagree with you there. If you only eat street tacos then yeah, mexican food is pretty good, but from the extensive mexican restaurant eating (in Mexico) I've done over the years, I've come to not be very impressed at all with the food. Really in all the time I've spent in Mexico, the only good food I've had was made at home, or from a street vendor.
