    I remember living in Lodi California in the late 60's and seeing Taco Bell open down the street from my home. Tacos and burritos were $.18 each. Eighteen cents!

    That was my idea of Mexican food for years. I then made friends with a Mexican shipmate in the Navy who's wife made these delicious, traditional breakfast burritos. He would often bring an extra one to work for me. They were amazing!

    I had all but forgotten about them until I started watching this Youtube Vlogger this past month and saw this "Taco Tour" of Mexico city. I was blown away. I've watched this entire video twice, now. It amazes me.



    I have come to the conclusion that most people have no idea what real tacos are. o_O

    I'll eat just about any kind of taco. Street tacos are definitely the best, but I'll chow down on Taco Bell too.

    As a matter of fact I ate 4 Jack in the Box tacos for lunch today.

    Taco Bell is not Mexican food at all. The town I live in is about 90% Mexican and I get to enjoy real Mexican food on the regular. There is no comparison.

    Authentic tacos do not make Taco bell any less delicious.

    But real deal carne asada con todo or birria tacos they are not.

    Oh and his videos are all fantastic, if you like food or culture check out his channel. It's full of awesome and I'm totally jealous that he gets to do that for a living.

    Most people have no idea what Mexican food is period. I used to work at a Tex Mex place in high school, Tias Tex Mex. It was pretty good, On the Border is pretty good, for Tex Mex.

    I can't remember the last time I had Taco Bell, must've been almost 15 years, it was a chicken and rice burrito because thats all I'd get. Taco Bell is nasty! If you think thats even close to Mexican food you ain't livin'!

    When I was doing roofing several years back I had a group of Mexican Americans working for me on a job. At lunch they would call a "food truck" which was run by a man and his wife.

    About an hour and a half later a Dodge pickup with a camper shell on the back would pull up. I know what you're thinking, I did too, but decided to see what the fuss was about.

    When I got to the truck the nan opened a side panel on the camper shell, there were several restaurant style trays covered with foil. He started removing the foil and it was all still steaming, the cold stuff was iced, and he had a cooler with Mexico bottled Coke products with "real cane sugar" instead of corn syrup.

    I honestly don't know what I had, and I mean that with the utmost respect to the guys wife, the cook. I asked my crew what was good and they ordered for me, I had a whole tray of tortillas with pork, another with beef, guac, sour cream, pico, goat cheese, etc, etc. There were sides too rice and real refried beans and cornbread.
    The thing is it had stuff in it youd never think of thanks to Tex Nex and taco bell. Like radishes and onions in with the pork which not only added flavor but spice, onions in the beans, cilantro in the guac. I'll admit I likhot stuff to a point, but the guys were laughing at me because the third tortilla had different beef mix of stuff in it, and whew my eyes were about to water. Chinco my buddy said I was funny because all three of his were that one. Steam was nearly coming out of my ears but man it had flavor like I'd never tasted, actually all of it was. I wanted more!

    I drank a few sodas to wash it down and attempt to cool my mouth. It was a good thing we were almost done because I was too full to work anymore.

    By the time we were half way through eating the man and woman had everything wrapped back up. He came over and everyone paid based on what they had, and everybody thanked him and he was very pleased everyone liked it. Apparently they wake up every morning and finish preparing everything and cooking for lunch calls. I was so impressed.

    I watched everyone pay and couldn't believe he was only charging everyone about $6 for all that food. I took $40 out for mine and handed it to him where no one could see but us.

    They came a few more times. I'll never forget it. I would rather have sat down at a table some time, and valve been invited but had other obligations.

    There is a show on tv with some guy with a mustache, name escapes me. He goes around Mexico and eats, then goes back and cooks it in his kitchen. Rick Balis, thats it. And theres a Mexican American woman too that has a show, she cooks in her kitchen after going to Mexico for inspiration on cooking what she grew up eating. If you watch those two shows you will quickly realize that "Mexican Food" is way different than what Americans generally perceive it to be, and it looks really good!

    Sad there aren't more places that make authentic food here. When you go to the "Mexican Restaurant" ever notice how everything tastes like everything else? The rice tastes like the beans, the rice and veans taste like the tacos, nothing's got any real flavor?. Tex Mex kicks it up some but its still Americanized and more Tex than Mex!

    Funny thing. There was a French guy on here not long ago and he mentioned that they had "American Hamburgers" in France, "at McDonald's". Must be similar to "Mexican Food" in America.

    Anyway, this turned into a lot longer conversation than I intended. :oops:

    I recently posted a thread on home made refried beans. I make my own beans, tortillas, guacamole. You can put just about anything in a burrito. Beef, pork, chicken, seafood. And hopefully soon maybe iguana(see my thread on iguana hunting). Add all the sides...onions, tomatoes, cheese, lettuce and so on. Top it off with home made salsa. Mexican food is a "stick to your ribs" meal. It's referred to as peasant food. It'll power you up for a full day of work...or play!! :dblthumb:

    My late daughter married a man from Mexico and that has given me the opportunity to enjoy traditional Mexican cuisine. I can tell you that none of what I thought was Mexican food is traditional Mexican food. I will say the simple bean burrito from Taco Bell is probably the closest thing to it, but even it is a far cry away and I don’t think any self respecting Hispanic would associate with one!

    My family is of strong German descent, and even though my family has been in this great country since the early 1700’s we still eat a lot of traditional German cuisine. I love the stuff. And if you tell my folks this I will deny it, but I have come to favor traditional Mexican cuisine. My favorite I think is the barbacoa, typically goat that is cooked in a pit, seasoned up with spices and served simply on softened corn tortillas with a sauce made of tomatillos, peppers, cilantro and lime. Good stuff!

    Don't be foolish enough to think this kind of crap doesn't happen in any fast-food joint.

    Don't slam it if you haven't tried it. Seriously.

    The best tacos I've had were out of a food truck. It wasn't your work site roach coach, but one that went to events and such. There's a stand on my way to the inlet that's called Taco Gringos I've been meaning to try. It even has a "gringos turn here" sign out front.

    I am an equal opportunity consumer.
    Skin a squirrel and skin a rat. Side by side.
    I ate dog when I was a kid in the hills of PR. Lotta feral dogs up there. I went back for 3rds.

    Not saying I wanna butcher Princess Pickles the Pug, but if that animal is in abundance in the AO, and food is hard to come by, good chance I'll be eating it.

    Used to have a lady who came every morning to the courthouse and jail ( they face each other). She had two rolling coolers with real tamales and burritos,egg, beef, pork, chicken, regular, spicy, lot of choices. Hot or regular salsa.
    She was usually sold out by 9 or 10 am. That was some seriously good food. I miss that.

    28th street flea market in Grand Rapids Michigan, or the flea market in paw paw Michigan, both are good for south of the border foods and good prices, buy it live or cooked.

    It seems most of the Mexican restaurants in the US sell Americanized Mexican food and not the real deal at all.

    Yep. I learned this lesson during a very long weekend at University almost a decade ago. :confused:

    Fortunately, I have a couple of high quality Mexican restaurants near to me now.

    I grew up on the border in SoAz.

    Didn't eat the "street food' food in Mexico - and many locals will not either. Food from local bakery, grocer and so on - usually safe/good to eat.

    TEX-MEX isn't Mexican food - it Texacian food. Way too spicy.

    For the record, I'm amazed TB is still in business. Del Taco is good food OTOH..

    I’ve never eaten at a Taco Bell,,,

    There is though a Mexican Restaurant in town, and I eat there sometimes,,, always the same thing, sounds like “case o’ dias”, got some kinda round flat bread, some pudding looking stuff that tastes like beans, and a sizzling hot plate of steak, onions, and chicken... It’s about two days worth of grub...

    Can’t abide messy food,,, anything difficult to eat ain’t fit to eat, so no tacos, burritos, or enchinchillas for me... I feel the same about chili dogs, and any sort of hamburger that isn’t a plain hamburger on a dry bun...

    I've never ordered quesadilla's because I don't know how many dilla's are in a case. I seriously doubt I could eat an entire case. :confused::rolleyes:

    Lot of grub though,,, eat once a day with that meal...

    I don't think anyone really thinks taco bell is authentic mexican food...

    If you're going to a mexican place where all the food tastes the same, you're going to the wrong places.

    Some of yall need to branch out.

    @Haggis I frequently wonder why you bother posting.... it's a thread about tacos. If you don't like tacos, first off I pity you. second, don't post. sheesh with a name like yours I figured you'd be more open to food experimentation.

    You just need to learn the proper grip, as the guy in the video demonstrated. :p

    Jump to 20:24 in the video I posted, for those who don't want to watch the whole thing. I found this rather amusing. :D

    I know. It's just another quick and easy fast food joint with a particular flavor. There just happens to be one about 3 blocks from where I currently live, so it's easy to give in to that temptation. :confused:

    Ensenada isn’t a bad spot for tacos. We used to stop there religiously for tacos before heading down the peninsula for the races

    Don’t listen to anyone that says locals don’t eat street food, we were always surrounded by locals at the taco carts we stopped at.

    Ask the locals for a good Birria spot.

    Tijuana for a mission trip next Saturday. Oh, man! Can’t wait for Saturday night! We’ll most likely hit the taco stand at least 4 out of seven nights, plus one night the local ladies of the church serve us dinner.

    I kinda feel sorry for taco bell right now. This thread has probably ruined their reputation for fine Mexican cuisine. :)

    I eat Mexican food once in a while. Maybe once a year or so. Usually Taco Bell. I don't care for the food at all. Tacos, beans, chamachiillos, tortalittos, burritos, diarrheatos, it all taste bad to me. Ugh...By the way there is a Taco Bell in Ensanada so it may be authentic Mexican food.

    Same here. And, slightly off topic, but I have to emphasize the "cultural" aspect of his videos. I was particularly impressed with the series from Uzbekistan.

    It made me realize how ignorant I am on that part of the world. When thinking about the former Soviet States I... well... never gave it much thought. All of those "Stans." Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, etc. I always imagined them as being run down remnants of an old defunct system.

    This video made me realize what a vibrant, modern, friendly part of the world these places can be.




    Also, I remembered a Mexican restaurant just down the street from that nearby Taco Bell called Atilano's. I went there about a year ago and had an enchilada dinner that was very tasty. I may just have to drop by there tomorrow and see what kind of tacos they have. :33:

    I need to say in defense of Taco Bell, I love their food.
    I also enjoy authentic Mexican food as well, some of it can be bland from certain areas.

    Hey, some people like McDonald's too, but that doesn't make it a hamburger. :)

    ^^^ This.

    Its mexican style food. Its fast food. I can eat taco bell much more often and be happy than I can Mcburgers or most other fast food.

    I love good mexican food, theres many variations, my first choice is generally a shredded beef chimi.

    Travelling on the train in the 80s, there was a lady selling home made burritos and tamales on the platform at Albuquerque. The conductor said she had excellent food. I have to agree. Arizona had a wide variety of very good mexican food. The Tamale Pot in Flagstaff was a tiny mom and pop place we used to get lunch at from work in the early 80s. Their tamales were outstanding, their burritos were very good.
