    i like carnitas.

    the gratuitous use of the term 'nom'? not so much.

    Awesome!

    I got the office next door hooked on them. There is this great "taco stand" up the street from our office. They even have Coke with real cane sugar and for some reason it just goes perfectly with Carnitas.

    sorry, i think 'nom' should be tossed on the top of the lexicon trash heap, along w/ 'it is what it is' and other such nonsense.

    I second that motion. As the food forum guru it would only be appropriate.

    Nope, I own at Scrabble. I used to have a copy of the official scrabble dictionary. I say used to because I'm pretty sure it got lost in the move. :(

    North Carolina has one the fastest growing Hispanic communities in the country.

    There are more mexican restaurants that cater to whitey than authentic ones. But the taquerias that are predominantly patronized by Mexicans are my favorite.

    Werd.

    If you want good mexican food go to where the Mexicans go.

    If you want good chinese food, go to where the chinese go.

    If you want good italian food, go where don vito goes.

    If you want good american food, don't go to McDonalds.

    again.. if you want good MEXICAN food, go where the MEXICANS go.


    True mexicans are hispanics, but hispanics are not necessarily mexicans.:lighten:

    IMHO Chipotle (the restaurant and their food) is a major FAIL. That's what happens when you take a great idea (mexican food), and try to make it trendy (chipotle).

    yeah chipotle is good but not "traditional" mexican. Definitely prefer the micro joints.

    The plate I had yesterday looked exactly like the photo. I think the little stand that started up is pretty good Mexican, compared to the stuff I've had in Cali anyway.

    They had a majority interest for a few years but are no longer involved. They are much better than Baja Fresh. As far as large Mexican chains go (fast food or not), its hard to do much better.

    carnitas should be your custom title.

    it means little meat.
