I have had "authentic" mexican food. I am not saying it is nasty, but it is not great...

To each his own. Some people really like "authentic" food from Scotland, and Norway too.

I really don't understand the goat thing though. It must be an aquired taste...

Well I mean it's just that "basically beans and corn tortillas prepared the cheapest way possible" only fairly describes a minimum of real mexican fare.

The most mouth-watering movie I ever saw was "tortilla soup" which demonstrated some high end mexican cuisine. This would be a more valid comparison to a great steak.

If you don't like the cheapest authentic mexican food, it doesn't mean you wouldn't like other authentic mexican food.

cheap mexican tacos compared to Kraft mac & cheese? Or a McDonald's cheeseburger? I'd take the tacos.

I guess you can give the el cheapo eats that much — the mexican menu can go far on a limited budget because it makes such good use of basic foodstuffs.

But the two types of messkin I really like are

1. The kind you get at a genuine mex oasis where they serve margaritas in bell jars and make their own sauces and chile verde to put on everything.

2. the fruity high-end mexican 'fusion' dishes where they export everything that works for mexican food and use it to revolutionize haute cuisine.

This is actually a subject I could blabber on about more than I used to blabber on about politics, so, I best be careful.
