actually, when eating on the street, you'll be surrounded by all walks of life. the street food can be excellent and is not only for peasants. so you haven't been to a good restaurant where actual mexicans eat. have you been to a large mexican city or do you only visit the beaches? in any case, if you are going to compare peasant foods, in a thread for white americans discussing "ethnic" food, you should compare the peasant food of mexico with the peasant food of america. that's only fair. i would much rather eat a cocido
with fresh beef ribs, fresh vegetables, and fresh lime juice from a lime picked in the backyard, than eat a frozen tv dinner with frozen tater tots or instant mashed potatoes from a box. let's compare apples to apples.
