    Like the food I've eaten in Shenzhen, Guanzhou, Shanghai, etc..makes the crap we get here look like poo.
    Ok. Great. So what does a fansy dish of Mexican consist of?

    I'm waiting to hear that as well.

    Maybe carnitas, which is fancier than tacos, but I still wouldn't call it "fancy".

    He could describe it.

    He's been around, so I know he doesn't think that a dish you can get at any Texas cantina or food truck is "fancy".

    You ever eaten in a high-end Mexican restaurant in Mexico City, for example? I don't know the names of many of the entres (except tacos etc..but the stuff they put on them makes the ones here look pretty sad) without looking them up but its quite different and varies rom the "Tex-Mex" standard fare they serve up in the average Mexican restaurant around here. I found the same to be true in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

    You better sit down because I have a shock for you:

    Texas is filled with Mexicans.

    Like, from Mexico.

    And a great number of the Mexican restaurants cater to Mexicans and not the Taco Bell crowd.

    Which means I know how to eat authentic Mexican chow and have done so many many times without leaving the United States, although I've eaten Mexican chow in Mexico as well.

    So describe one of the fansy dishes. Not trying to bust on you, I'm genuinely curious what we're talking about here.

    Yea, Adam Zimmern, all you have to do is tell us one single thing you ate at the taste testing you went to. Surely Pepe told you what you were munching on.

    All that time spent on El Salvador and Mexico City, it shouldn't be this hard.

    "all that time spent" happened to be as long as 44 years ago, child. I lived in El Salvador in the mid 1970s for a while. Have not been back to Mexico working since about 1990.

    When I stop in and Pepe says "I got something you need to try", I try it. I have not had to pay for a meal there in years. ;-)
