You mentioned Mexican food. Gawd glorious Mexican food.

 

I satisfied my burrito craving yesterday. Ate wot I consider is the best damn burrito ever, by Tio Pedro's restaurant. It's cheaper and so much better than the burrito sold by Army Navy restaurant here. It's cheaper and yummier than the really good burrito sold by Hermanos restaurant here. My only criticism is that the Tio Pedro burrito was served on a plate with sauce over it. I would've preferred it wrapped in paper or foil so I can eat it with my hands instead with fork and knife. Still, it was superb.

 

Will go back one day for their fajitas etc.

 

It's been more than a year since I last ate there mainly because parking and time issues. Last night, though, the stars were properly aligned. Back then, their restaurant was a small affair of 4 tables. Last night, they expanded, and the menu has likewise expanded. The burrito also became larger. It was good already back then. It was so much better now.

 

Delicious.

Sadly Mexican places here are few and far between, the ones that are around are generally busy and fairly expensive.

Just found that the American creativity got to Sangría, that Iberian drink.

 

Results are... interesting.

 

Americans will pervert any national dish or drink, then try to sell it back to you in fast food / junk food form.

San Antonio, fortunately has really good Tex Mex breakfasts which are suprisingly inexpensive.  That looks interesting, and tasty.  But you must use Mexican style Chorizo: http://www.garciafoo...rizo-fino-32oz/  Garcia's is the local favorite, and I like Fino because you drain off less grease.  Mmmmmm Chorizo and potatoes.  d7d012c55b259aa1819256cc0b131eb6.jpgMmmmmm. 

My favorite mom and pop hole in the wall Mexican place closed, and recently another even more hole in the wall Mexican joint opened in the same spot. Went there this morning for the first time. When they offered me both the lunch and breakfast menu at 9am, I knew they were speaking my language. Probably the most authentic Mexican joint that has ever opened within the city limits. There was no Speedy Gonzales special on the menu, which sees to be the signature offering of every Mexican joint catering to the white folk.  They even offer home made corn and flour tortillas.  Sadly due to my diet restrictions I could not sample those, or much else on the menu, but what I got was great. The chorizo was good quality, and not the usual cheap crap you find so many places.Their homemade salsas were some of the best I have had. I am almost tempted to go back for lunch.  If I get real ballsy, I will have to go in and try their menudo some time. See if I can finally do tripe.

Briefly, some people made sangria into a mildly alcoholic long drink, with emphasis in the fruit juice side. So it's almost like a cocktail for tee-totalers. Tastes nice, but it's not the peasant drink anymore.

That is really unlucky. Indians cook with nothing but spices.

Well maybe experiment which spices you can stomach? Or are you so deeply irish that you can only live off of cabbage, potatoes, carrots, dairy and stew? ;)



Yeah, well KFC. The secret spice mixture is tasty, but the few times I have been there the chicken was too fatty from the frier. I guess because the shop was filled to the brim and it wasn't hit enough.

ahem - Bangladeshi not Indian - B food is nicer

 

I like rice and Dahl

 

Am cooking for self at present - better half now working in UAE - I am surviving on stews without cabbage, as forgot to buy some

 

Am partial to good bacon - rashers in Green village breakfast were very very tasty

 

I remember an NGO in Sudan used to call me when someone arrive out from Ireland, family would breakfast on Denny sausages and Rashers -

 

I go through at least a lt of milk a day and wife says that I eat enough butter to kill me twice over

 

would be happy to experiment but better half would probably move out, also am not far from a military camp and if the wind was the wrong way might set off a chemical attack alert

Sorry, did not mean to insult or anything. Bangladesh couldn have ended up as an indian province had history run slightly differently. The dice happened to fall as they did. And the cuisines are similar. Well as much as one can talk about one single indian cuisine. ;)

I, too, have a rather energetic digestive reaction to certain Indian foods, specifically yellow curries. Love the taste, but pretty much every carbon, hydrogen, and sulfer atom gets scavenged into the production of methane and hydrogen sulfide, making Boyle's Law a death sentence.

My wife has banned the consumption of dahl in any form due to the unfortunate side effects it has on me, and anyone in the immediate vicinity.  Naturally I take advantage of my trips to corporate HQ to partake, but I have learned not to eat it within two days of air travel.

Indian Food again tomorrow.  It has become my standard Friday event.  Take laptop, go to Starbucks across the street, drink foul coffee for an hour or two, while surfing the net, and emailing people.  Then at 1100 hours, go eat wonderful food.

I'm planning on going into my new favorite Mexican joint to try their beef tongue this weekend, unless my friends want to do their breakfast instead. I have never had beef tongue but I have heard it tastes like pot roast. Last time I was in I tried their house made soft corn tortillas despite them being forbidden on my diet. I found out what I been missing all this time. Every soft corn tortilla I had had up to that point has been garbage. These were magnificent.
