Re: Mexican food

As a Californian, I am not sure if I agree with all of this article... and they don't even mention Tex-Mex. But it is good food for thought on this thread...

Re: Mexican food

Restaurant El Luchador opened recently in Zurich: http://www.elluchador.ch/ by the same guy (according to Züritipp, he grew up in Mexico) who runs the La Catrina Bar. It's supposed to be real mexican food, the reviews are okay:

Re: Mexican food

Just went to El Luchador for lunch yesterday, loved it! Absolutely not tex-mex or anything like it, so you may be in for a surprise depending on your expectations. Preparation is simple, authentic, spicy, with little to no sauce or cheese. I had the Pozole (spicy chicken and hominy soup) and the Tacos Al Pastor, simple grilled marinated pork in two soft steamed corn tortillas, served with a wedge of lime and assorted salsas. The Pozole was rich and warm, with lots of tender chicken and hominy. Will definitely clear your head The Al Pastor was perfectly marinated and charred, together with lime and a good dollop of salsa fresca, made for a delicious lunch.

Small place, so get there early if you are going for lunch. I loved it so much I'm going back again today!

I thought we decided chili made with human flesh was not indeed genuine Mexican food....

yes, the "Sopa" is Posole, at least yesterday. Photo doesn't do it justice (the broth is really rich and spicy, and underneath it is full of lots of chicken, onion, hominy, chile, coriander, etc.) http://www.foodspotting.com/reviews/1775787

Awesome. Gonna try it out soon. Posole's great, but I loooooove menudo, especially after a hard night of drinking. Thanks for the tip

yes. its outstanding. as a native southern californian who has been raised since infancy on amazing taquerias, travelled in mexico and married a mexican, this is the closest thing to how it should be.

tres kilos and all that tex mex crap is dreadful. this is what it needs to be.

Re: Mexican food

Mrs Texaner and I dropped in at El Luchador this last Thursday as we celebrated our anniversary in Zürich. It was truly superb. We both had tears in our eyes from (finally!) enjoying such simple-but-oh-so-very-authentic Mexican cuisine. We both agreed that those tacos alone were worth a trip to the 'big city' (from Nidwalden). We'll be back.
