¿Comida Mexicana o Tex-Mex?

Restaurante El Pastor de McAllen, Texas

Conforme el tiempo pasa y nos adaptamos a las situaciones que se presentan veo cada vez más restaurantes procedentes de México en el Valle. Tal es el caso de Mi Pueblito el cual acaba de abrir sus puertas en la ciudad de Brownsville, Texas. Tal y como su versión original en Matamoros el nuevo Mi Pueblito ofrece todos los platillos tradicionales del norte de México en un ambiente lleno de color, pinturas y esculturas modernas de Frida Kahlo y La Catrina.  Algunos restaurantes que ahora  se encuentran de este lado de la frontera son:  Arturos, El Pastor y La Fogata. Lo mejor de estos restaurantes es que nos ofrecen una opción además de la comida TEX-MEX tradicional  del Valle de Texas comúnmente llamada “Mexican Food. ” Me gustaría que se considerara asignar a nuestros restaurantes locales más correctamente y así promover los auténticos platillos de México así como la fusión de estos con la comida Tejana, pues es grande la diferencia y pocos la reconocen. El restaurante Garabatos de Harlingen ofrece una muy buena variedad de los platillos auténticos mexicanos como la Cochinita Pibil y la Carne en su Jugo, muy interesante es escuchar a personas decir que ¡Garabatos es un restaurante de comida española! Tal vez es porque ofrecen la tradicional Paella los domingos, sin embargo creo que es por el total desconocimiento de la auténtica cocina mexicana.    ¿Usted qué opina?

A bird does not sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.-Maya Angelou. La Vida Valle is where I write about "la vida" life in the Rio Grande Valley. From this bi-cultural corner on the tip of Texas, I share my poems and spiritual and travel experiences. I also blog about the arts,nature and my passion for historic preservation and architecture. But most important, let's talk about "la vida" - living our lives - in a vacation state of mind. Contributions and comments are always welcome .

The Indigenous Women of Oaxaca

Happy, tired, busy, curious and friendly. The women of Oaxaca are never idle. Always busy, always pensive, almost distant yet ever present. During a recent trip to Oaxaca, my husband Lupe took the photos below of these incredib...
