    I love some good street tacos (carne asada and carnitas are my fav!) and what else to pair it with than a Margarita on the rocks or an ice cold Sol :)

    Mexican food is one cuisine with which I wouldn’t mind being stranded on a deserted island. So delicioso. But for this entry, I will narrow it down to tamales, tamales, tamales!

    whoa, my favorite Mexican dish is hand-painted and my favorite drink is the one I had 5 minutes ago.

    Carnitas are kind of my ‘order them everywhere and compare’ food. I’ve eaten them all over Mexico, Belize and the US… oddly enough the best I’ve ever had were at Michoacan restaurant in Odell, OR (outside Hood River). It’s one of my 100 mile meals.
    On a side note – you do realize most of Mexico doesn’t celebrate Cinco de Mayo… don’t you?
