When we were leaving the USA I was often asked what I thought I would miss the most. Of course I answered my family and friends and often included the beautiful Pacific Northwest, reliable technology and my bike.
Not once did my answers include Mexican Food.
But being out here now going on eight months I’ve been craving Mexican food so bad! The last Mexican restaurant we saw was in December in Phuket Thailand. Since then – nada.
So when we stumbled on a place just a couple blocks from our house in Dubrovnik I was all over it. I mean really, in the USA it’s “baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and Mexican Food” right?
Maybe it’s a West Coast thing but in our house we cooked Mexican about once a week and went out for Mexican about once a month. When I was working I had a Taco Time Taco Salad for lunch at least twice a week.
So it was much of a surprise when I realized the entire world doesn’t inhale Mexican food like we do. You can get a pizza in every country (even the stingy Seychelles). You can find pasta almost anywhere. But Mexican? No va a pasar!
I got my fix tonight and am fat and happy. Who knows when I will get a fajita again? So until then muchos gracias!
