Makes sense to me. America gets a lot of Mexican immigrants and so Mexican food is popular there. Britain gets a lot of Indian/Pakistani immigrants so curries are popular here.Dags90 said:I'm probably more surprised than I should be at the lack of Mexican food enjoyed by our international forum goers. I'm sure some British people might be shocked to hear that I've never had a curry.
You could also just get your shit together and tell them. If you ate it they probably thought you didn't mind it.madwarper said:Then, after a few years, my parents noticed I didn't like that (they were really dense), and they gave me soft corn/flour tortilla which I wrap around the taco fillings, which technically makes it a burrito.
It's Tex-Mex. What most Americans think of as "Mexican Food" are a variety of dishes that were changed as much out of quirks and happenstance as preferences in taste. Since the 90's the different style was dubbed Tex-Mex.Kaleion said:Less than an hour ago, but I must say I'm shocked by what you are talking about, shells?
Tacos don't have shells they have tortillas, either wheat tortillas or corn tortillas and hard tacos[footnote]Which really aren't the most common ones here in México[/footnote], have fried tortillas not some bizarre twilight zone shells.
While some tacos do have cheese it's just an optional ingredient and really most tacos don't have cheese, normally if it has cheese it's called a quesadilla, though at least in the North they just call normal tacos that have cheese quesatacos.
You poor things I pity your existence without any actual tacos.
I'm assuming because in many places where tacos aren't commonly sold, taco shells are hard to come by as well. I can only remember seeing them in Waitrose (in the do-it-yourself-international-food section). And they seemed really expensive for something so unappealing.Starik20X6 said:Also, what's the deal with all the people who haven't had one because they can't buy one nearby? You may not know this, but there is this thing called 'cooking stuff yourself', and funnily enough, tacos are an entry-level dish. There's no excuse to not experience the delicious.
