Yinz are real mexicans?!

I've discovered whats lacking in the Pittsburgh dining bag 'o tricks...Mexican, I mean real mexican food. We have tex-mex and all the boring chains, but not a lot of good mexican food. I'm pretty easy to please. It's not as if I was raised on mexican food...hell I've never been to Mexico, but I'd like to think I still know when shit tastes good! I lived on the Southside for a long time. I watched my once beloved Taco Loco fall by the wayside. When they opened, they had like four things on the menu (including delicious tongue tacos!!!!)It was dirt cheap, and the owners were super nice. I guess the taco bell/MadMex crowd wasn't ready...it's a shame. Hazel and I ate at VeraCruz in Oakland yesterday...I'd eaten there before & when it was called something else before that. It's good, it's cheap, and whats more they had my favorite dish Chile Rellenos. It's the simplest thing ever, but super tasty! I make them at home from time to time, but can't seem to recreate the flavor exactly. I hope they keep introducing new items and get away from the boring, the chi-chi's loving assholes of the city. Expand yer horizons, fuckers!!!

I went to Mexico. You know what was on the menu? Lips and peckers. Lots and lots of tripe.

I'm not afraid to admit when I'm wrong...I visited Taco Loco recently, and it was good again! They are in the old mill site tavern...it's a nice space.
