I remember the revelation of tasting real Mexican food for the first time on a field trip to the Hidalgo region of Mexico in 2004. It was nothing like the tex mex food I had eaten back in Australia or the US. My grandma would have loved the reminded me of northern chinese cuisine!

Today I went to a lovely taco place for lunch. It's not quite tex mex but I wouldn't say it's completely authentic either. Never mind. It tasted bloody good. And I reckon I could have eaten 10 of the fish tacos.

I did regret ordering this sickly sweet soft drink though. The label says it all. 100% sugar.
My American friend told me later that it's labelled this way to differentiate from the use of corn syrup, which is a common sweetener in the US.
