I am jealous, food here is pretty boring , being away from big multicultural  city , like Sydney  (many different cultures and food there )

 

One of these just opened in the little city  near here ;

Typical Americans ! 

 

There was an international taco day but they had to make a national taco day and change the date .

 

No wonder the country is going down the drain !  ....   I mean ,  the flush toilet !

Here`s a pic of the main drag in Zacatecas.  It`s beautifully colonial in the center, not quite so beautiful outside the center.  Ten minutes up the street from where this picture was taken (not by me, I just get it off the internet) there`s a hole-in-the-wall place, only open at night, with the best tripe tacos.  The tripe is cooked in a big vat of oil, not for the fat phobic.  We usually got ours to go, but you can also eat there on little communal benches.

Hole in the walls, can be great finds.  I find the best are near pawn shops for some reason.  Also if there's a cop car infront it's usually a plus, in that cops know good cheap eats.

 

Lately my favorites are those that keep it simple, where the meat shines, the shell is glistening with oil and the addons, cilantro.. onions, pickled stuff are sparse.  Don't know if its authentic, I'm seeing some good hole in the walls that are doing there meat on a gyros style spit.  That can be awfully good.

Tacos al pastor are done on a gyro style spit all over  Mexico (pictured below).  There`s also something called "tacos arabes" -- arabic tacos -- a specialty of Puebla.  The meat for tacos arabes is also cooked on a spit like shawarma and piled into a thick pita-esque bread.

 

I don`t care a whole lot about authenticity myself as long as something tastes good.  My mom used to make the best tacos that we`d top with jack cheese and American style sour cream.  Not very authentic but boy were they yummy.

I am sorry, I have to say that not all the mexican food is good in mexico ither. i think it is more about how much time and effort you put into making it.

These tacos were really good, so good I went against my no refined carbohydrate rule and ate tortillas.

Well, just to get even with all you taco lovers, I'm having pizza tonight, with jalapenos and anchovies.

The anchovies are going to have way more salt than my body need and I will likely hear from it.  But I don't care.

 

Salt cooking would be good if the food is going to be sitting around for a while after cooking.  The salt would prevent, to a degree, nay meat from spoiling for a while.

and money ... my neighbour put in 'normal toilet' ... septic tank ,  piping etc ...... thousands of $$$$$$

 

I made my own dry composting toilet for around $40    .   And you get compost .

 

So far I have emptied two barrels of it  (  about 6 years worth )  on   a little collection of rainforest trees in the garden .

Certainly !   I used to work on a catering crew, one of the chefs was Mexican, from a coastal area. His recipes were  simple , light, fresh a lot of seafood ,  but ver good !  And very different from what sells in  most Mexican restaurants here .
