First Guide of Authentic Mexican Restaurants in USA and Canada [Moved from Mexico Board]

Xacinta | Mar 22, 2009 12:14 PM

I attended the ANTAD Expo in Guadalajara 2 weeks ago and at the SAGARPA stand i got a copy of the First Guide in USA and Canada of Authentic Mexican Food. The guide was edited by the Authentic Flavors of Mexico Foundation, good to know there´s one. The booklet starts giving definitions for Mexican native, Creative cusine, Traditional Mexican and Taquería, the last one described as a "place where salsas and tortillas are very important." I was surprised to see that Illinois, a state with a large Mexican population had only one restaurant that they considered authentic, Adobo Grill, Mc Allen Tx, a city just on the border, had also just one, Palenque Grill. On the other hand, Ontario had 32 listed restaurants....At the Hidalgo stand they were giving away a recipe booklet of miel de maguey, which tasted very similar to honey (bee), but i have never seen it being sold in stores.
