Cool Mexican food and your impression

Hola! to all my brethren in scotland, mi nombre es Alberto Romo!
i am very interested in how the Scots view South American Cuisine and their impression on the food, culture, and what they like and dont like about latin cuisine .

i have taken the liberty to view some of the latin eateries you have available to you. it seems they all have the same thing going on. and i fear you may be getting the short straw on this one, for as flavourful and welcoming they may be. i can promise you there is much more to be had and tasted. from the vibrant color of the ingredients to the savory flavor of some of our most prized culinary achievements.

please us latins are no french. we do not do fine dining and i feel it a insult to latin cuisine when otherwise served. its supposed to be a experience with the whole town. you know every body and everybody knows you. its a party when you eat. a party when you drink. and a party till you sleep.

i happily await any responses

I like Mexican food...my fave restaurant is Mexican and i like the Sol too...(too much some times...hic)

the only thing i dont like about some of the meals is they use too many beans but thats just me.

I know its never going to be authentic food we get here just our interpretation of it but apart from travelling to Mexico it all we can get i suppose.

my mate is from Brazil and she cooks some lovely meals which i really like but ive no idea what they are called.

I generally eat food from over the world and like most things...

except sushi....i like my fish cooked at the very least

asada
empanadas

I love good Mexican food. Most is bland but I had enchilladas in France and they were quite magnificent. The only problem was the liberal creation and impressive expulsion of gas that was produced during the lengthy night-long (house filling) digestion process.

Doesn't bare thinking about really but I'd eat those enchilladas again in a heartbeat.

Have to admit that it isn't amongst my favourites of the world's cuisines.

Give me French or Italian or Indian or Greek or even some Arabic dishses, before Mexican.
