It Took All These Years...

to finally find a decent Mexican restaurant...outside of the southwestern States or Mexico (but actually in Mexico I don't like their mexican food as much...if that makes any sense). Today I was checking out a neighborhood with a friend, and I saw a sign for Mexican food. I made a comment about my past experiences in foreign places and how they couldn't pull it off - the tastes, the spices, the richness, the simplicity of a good Mexican taco or burrito.

I was told to change route immediately, and then I experienced on of the best meat tacos I have ever tasted. Here it is:



I would recommend this place to my good friends back in Southern California, where we are spoiled with a plethora of Mexican food options. This is legit...oh Montevideo...could be the start of a song actually.

I'm off...have to go train for my race coming up, and then speak Gringo Spanish for a few hours. Ciao.

Looks just like Taco Tuesday! Sounds like you're acclimating just wonderfully...

Ya, tasting those tacos brought me back home for an hour or so. I even think Mana was playing so it felt like Santa Ana, or somewhere close by....

what was the name of that restaurant? La Lupita?

Either Parrillon, or Parrillada...it had both names on the front. Near the intersection (in Palermo) of Emilio Frugoni and Lauro MĂșller...

You prefer "American" Mexican food? I think they refer to that as Tex/Mex is that right?
I love both Tex/Mex and MexMex (?).
Interesting that they do a good one in Uruguay though.
No doubt I will find it when I make the trip over...

I love both - TexMex and the MexMex. I haven't found a good TexMex place outside of Texas actually...I love their spices. But in Southern California (where I grew up) the Mexican food is just that...Mexican with a lot of spices!
