The true mark of how good a Mexican restuarant is lies with how well they do the simplest things. I can order up a plate of tamales and be dazzled by the kaleidoscope of taste from the more complicated dishes, but if I ever really wanted to test the traditional nature of a restaurant’s style of cooking Mexican food, all I have to do is order a regular ol’ burrito with beans, cheese, carne asada, and nothing else. Those three things, if done right, will tell me if the place I’m eating at is good or not. If you relish the taste of that burrito, then the rest of the menu is gold.
That’s my eating tip of the day. 🙂
You know what I just discovered? Mole sauce! Oh my lord yum.
Funny, I can say the same thing about Chinese food from the way fried rice is prepared and cooked.
