I was recently at a Mexican restaurant and the hot salsa was...well...hot. Like it had been deliberately warmed up.
I'm not an expert on Mexican cuisine, so I thought maybe this was an aspect of Mexican cuisine I was unfamiliar with. The restaurant was billing itself as upscale, gourmet Mexican food, so I wondered if I was just out of the loop on what that way. Despite the restaurant's pretense, the meal was completely blah and flavorless.
Is this a normal part of Mexican cuisine? Or was it just food I didn't like served at a restaurant that's not very good?
