Anything for your tummy, honey :) But if you read the article, to score that chicken you have to get there right at noon and grab a ticket. You can't just pop in on a whim. Hence why I've not gone yet.

Oh, and this is around the corner if we get a sudden burst of energy after all that fat consumption.

It's true, I've been known to indulge in a Big Mac here and there. But I thought the "Pink Slime" was a nugget only issue. So now they are putting this crap in the burgers also? Looks like I shall be spending alot of time at Burger King now.

Is it too much to ask that you thoroughly read a link? McD's used to do it. They've stopped. Also, BK and Taco Hell used to do it but have stopped.

That is true.  There is however a Mexican version.  I guess it was adapted during the Nueva EspaŮa days.

When it comes to Sapapillas all I care about is that there is plenty of butter(no margarine) and Texas honey nearby.  ;D

Does anyone remember Panchos? It was an all you can eat MExican Food Bufffet tragedy back in the 80's. There were little mexican flags on the tables and anytime you needed more flautas or Sopapillas (the only thing worth ordering there) you would raise the flag up the little flag pole and the waitress woudl come scurrying over. Ahhh memories.

Miami sucks as badly in that respect.  There are a couple of semi decent places down in Homestead, but nothing worth writing home about.  Then there's Rosa Mexicano in Brickell, but it was just ok.

Then again we do have some phenomenal Cuban, Colombian, Peruvian, Jamaican, and Nicaraguan places.

What was your position with the rodeo club? Cowgirl?

There are no brown people in Seattle, hence we have crappy options for anything south of the border.

There's even a shop to buy live chickens in Little Mexico, though I think the Vietnamese operate it. The Italians, naturally, don't care for either of them.

ps: most widely-known wine critic Robert Parker just pronounced this restaurant as the best French bistro in the US. And what do you know, it's a mere 10 block walk from me! (but I've not ever gone :) = loser) Need to go try the braised pig foot stuffed with foie gras -- how fierce does that sound?

I also love that they're closed on Valentine's Day.

There are no brown people in Seattle, hence we have crappy options for anything south of the border.

I hafta say that I love all sorts of food produced by my "brown" folks.  A couple of Venezuelan places have opened in the Doral area which are simply faboolous dahling.  And I forgot to mention Brazilian, yum. 


I also love that they're closed on Valentine's Day.

Heh, I love them just for that.

ps: most widely-known wine critic Robert Parker just pronounced this restaurant as the best French bistro in the US. And what do you know, it's a mere 10 block walk from me! (but I've not ever gone :) = loser) Need to go try the braised pig foot stuffed with foie gras -- how fierce does that sound?

That's only because he's never been to www.lepichetseattle.com or www.cafepresseseattle.com

And I'm being taken here next week for my birthday:

http://levirtu.com/

It's Italian, specializing in cuisine from the region of Abruzzo, and it's all locally sourced/farm-to-table blah blah blah. And they cure all of their own meat so I'm definitely heading for the salumi plate before anything else. mmm... duck prosciutto

I always thought Mexican food is a distant poor cousin of refined Indian food.

Of course I am biased.  :D

Are you kidding? Last time I was in Seattle, half of the high Crop. elevators were filled with Indians/subcontinent aka "browns". Believe it not, it's the same case in every cities in the States. So, dare to think that Indians are only working in calling center (Yes they are in India) but in the states, these Ďbrownsí are in every downtown locations in every cities!

Why poor? Last time I checked per capita income....

I feel the same way about the Cuban foods. Tasty and very much Indian like except for the 'beans' part and Cuban foods - oh yummy...

It's obvious from his wording as well as the context of the conversation that buginme was referring to Latin Americans.

I'm sure there's a lot of great Mexican food in New Delhi.

The ones I've been to in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore etc are just ok, nothing great.

Other than the various types of local cuisines which are quite diverse and most popular- among foreign foods- Chinese food (Indianised sort), American junk food, Italian (Pizzas, pastas mainly), Pan-Asian (esp. Thai, Malay, Sri Lankan etc), Lebanese, Greek and Continental food (Roasts and baked dishes especially) are quite popular in the big cities.

So, dare to think that Indians are only working in calling center (Yes they are in India) but in the states, these ‘browns’ are in every downtown locations in every cities!

Yeah we're all IT engineers and call centre slumdogs.  ::)

I meant it's a poor cousin- in terms of taste. Indian food has a lot beans too. Lots of it. In fact Rajma Rice is one of the most popular dishes in Northern India.

Well yeah, that's my point. For some reason, I can't imagine there being much of a Mexican immigrant community in India to set up shop and turn our a decent taquerŪa -- and that's a simple starting point.

Kind of like how my knowledge of Indian food is skewed -- I lived in NYC for 15 years and lots of the Indian community in, say Jackson Heights (Queens) is actually Muslim/Bangladeshi so there's no pork, but when I think of Mexican food there's certainly a lot of pork. And as far as beans go they're eaten but I don't see them as "central" to the meal though they are found (refried beans being an exception but are more Northern Mexico/Tex Mex -- not something in the heart of Mexico i.e. Pueblan or Oaxaca, but they are for Caribbean-Spanish cuisine). I also equate Mexican food with the use of corn (as in a tortilla which is central to that food), but I can't fathom corn in Indian cuisine.

ps: Bangladeshis also used to run most of the porn shops in Times Square before it was Disneyfied :)

Seriously Den? I live in San Antonio, Texas. the Tex Mex Capitol of the world  ::)

I also eat about a pound of Sopapillas a week. lol.


You eat a pound of Sopapillas a week, good lord man.........lol  ;D can you even shit or are you constipated all the time  ;D

New Mexico has a lot of Latino & Native American influence, it's every-where here in Albuquerque, it's in the food and enbeded into the local culture, were almost nothing like Texas accept for all the Cow-pokes here  :D

and we certainly don't have any bible-thumpers going door-to-door telling every one how to live their fucking life  :) you Texans are a different breed......lol

Are you kidding?

Um, yes.  Actually we were talking about Mexican food and central and south American food which the lovely emerald city is lacking. 

Rain town has a superb selection of Indian fare (at least I think, I'm not an expert but it's quite tasty). 

PS, who was talking about call centers?  That has nothing to do with the conversation.
