I haven't been to Michoacan (that's its name) for a long time. I don't think they have those items, but the prep on some items is different. It's on Flowing Wells Road across from Walter Douglas School west of Prince on the west side of the street. It is still very much a taqueria style place.
Regarding the word authentic - I think it has lost all meaning. People throw it around these days like crazy. I feel the same way about bistro and tapas. Don't get me started on organic. What about "authentic" Italian?
Rita, if you keep digging we will discuss "authentic" Chinese food. Panda Express isnt it.
and why do you like puttting authentic in quotes?
Does this restaurant make any of the dishes of Michoacan?http://www.mexconnect.com/articles/2430-th… : or is it a burrito place with a tenuous relationship to Michoacan?
Sinaloa is great. Where is this Michoacan restaurant?. Whats the name?
Bobby Lou, let me know if you go to either Sinaloa or Michoacan. They're down home and I like one better than the other (considerably so.) but I'm curious to see how "authentic" you think they are.
Lol. Will do.
No, I just stopped because it wasn't worth my time. There's nothing anyone could say to make you change your mind. You might want to try the Michoacan restaurant on Flowing Wells between Prince and Miracle Mile or Restaurant Sinaloa on West Prince, they have seafood cooked in many styles. There's a new Mexican restaurant opening
Downtown that claims to have "authentic" Mexican food. Please try it when it opens and get back to us. I'm sure we're all curious what you think.
"I think Tucson has great Mexican food, way better than places in California. We should highlight them." R. Connelly.
I guess that you are not answering me due to your ridiculous assertion that California doesnt have Mexican food on a par with Tucson. Despite massive evidence to the contrary. You truly do yourself , and this publication, a disservice by A: Not knowing anything ( food writer?" about food and B : Trying to bullshit your way out of it due to your position at the "paper". Frankly, its laughable.
Hersheys syrup with cumin isnt mole by the way.
Cafe Poca Cosa isnt authentic or any good for that matter. Anyway, its one place. You didnt mention where all of the other things could be found. Other than a couple of places that make tortillas.
Hand made corn tortillas...La Fresita on St Mary's Road and Pico de Gallo on south sixth. Flour tortillas? St Mary's tortilla factory and Anita Street Market, La Estrella bakery. moles? Either Poca Cosa. Pibil can be found there too. it's out there folks.
Tucson does indeed have great Mexican food. That most of it's Sonoran is a reflection of geography and history. I can remember getting a frosted mug of A&W root beer off the tray attached to our Ford Falcon at that 12th Ave. location back in the day.
Where in Tucson does one get : Cabrito, Moles from Michoacan, Puebla, Guererro, Oaxaca etc? Chorizo Verde from Toluca, Cochinita Pibil, Poc Chuc, Alhambre, Tortas Ahogadas,Pipian, Mexico City style Alto Cocina and a million other things, Handmade to order corn tortillas or flour for that matter? Southern California has it all. Tucson has Sonoran food. The bastard child of Mexican American cuisine. No comparison.
For every Epazote there are 10 Betos types. I completely disagree about the Mexican food here.I am curious about El Cisne.
I think we do a pretty good mix of restaurants. Did you read last week's review by Jacqui? Or her review of Epazote? Or mine of Amelia grey's? Just asking. Not trying to get defensive but I don't get the complaints. I think Tucson has great Mexican food, way better than places in California. We should highlight them.
I am from a lot of places. All of them with better food. I realize that you have to justify your job but come on.How many taco places can you review? I love a good taco but its all essentially the same menu and preparations.Is the orange cheese brighter here?
