Tell me they still have the Gila Monster Meatloaf Sandwich!
The Cup Cafe is a great place for a Sunday breakfast! The skillet eggs are delicious and richly recommended!
BTW, I am not from California. I'm from New Jersey. Tucson has better Mexican food than Jersey.
There is Italian American food and their is regional Italian food. Food that hasnt been co-opted by American tastes. Its a difficult thing to pull off in a small market like this. People slowly but surely demand more American ized versions of dishes until they become practically unrecognizable to purists or natives of that country.. Dont get me wrong. I love a good burrito/ Chimi etc with yellow cheese. Its great stuff when done right. Its just not the real thing. jwh, you seem quite small minded and petty.
Rita - you're wasting your energy. I get tired of types like Bobbylou. They are SO cool and sophisticated, bad mouth Tucson but somehow choose to live here. Please go back to California and with the attitude because we know it is so great........ thats why people have come here by the thousands bringing the cesspool with them.
I was concerned when it was the Cactus moon as was the administration of the school. When we complained we were told that the bar was grandfathered in. Well now its not. And yeah I am concerned about the New West and gotham clubs were run. Sounds to me like you know the owner and have some vested interest.
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.
