Jun 19th 2012 1:14PM I enjoyed yor article about "Mexican" food around the globe! I guess I am always an optimist and always hoping for a great find in an unlikely place! I grew up in South Texas, so I'm always looking for that elusive Mexican food when I travel. Despite my better judgement of eating the great local cuisine, I too will take a chance and face the disappointment! I was living in Tokyo 5 years ago on "Cinco de Mayo" I decided to give some "Mexican food" a go! They had a couple restaurants of the California-based chain, El Torito, in Tokyo and I gave it a try. As soon as the plate was delivered I wished I had just sought out some simple wonderful Ramen or Sushi, for less than half the price. Did the same thing while living in Shanghai! Tried a place called "California Kitchen" for a burrito. Just as mediocre as expected and only visited once. The cravings will always come, but I know it will always arrive with huge helpings of disappointment in my global travels when I try for some Mexican food, when I am so far away from Mexico! Looking forward to my next visit to Texas!
