Is that the same people who think that New York is awesome for its pizza?

My car still lives there. I visit it a lot in the summer.

And yay! Someone is finally going after the furries in Times Square. I am ok, though, with the naked girls in body paint. They are indigenous.

You are just a euro snob, there is some very good pizza in NY.

It's just an evident truth to me since I grew up in a place with excellent Mexican food. I'm not responsible for the statement of a fact becoming faddish.

NYC pizza hasn't really recovered from the Una Pizza Napoletana guy moving to San Francisco. But there's still plenty of good pizza around.

Coincidentally, today's installment of FiveThirtyEight's burrito bracket features the NYC contestants:

Eh ... you guys missed my point, which was about clichés, not about pizza. "NYC is great for pizza and bagels but there's no good Mexican or Indian food. Only decent Chinese food is in Flushing" etc....

How many times do we have to hear the same clichés ?
post #6578 of 6857
^ fair enough, but in my defense: I only resorted to the cliché as a response to pBOOTH's absurd claim that Mexican food sucks.

I do have a tough time finding good Mexican food. Ordered some from seamless last night, mostly because of their decent (if inauthentic) Tacos, but their rice and beans were crap.

I just don't like Mexican food. The cuisine, not the quality.

Lovely hour-and-a-half commute on the F train this morning.

Most of which was spent standing on the sweltering platform.

I see I am the only one here who cares about the furry invasion. I take it none of you have been assaulted by Strawberry Shortcake.

seems like you're the only jackass who goes to Times Square with any amount of frequency. This isn't an us problem, it's a you problem. Tisk tisk.



i was in the general area for a show yesterday. Didn't see Elmo.

after a few drinks on an empty stomach, Mexican food is my natural crave.

For me it is dirty, disgusting Chinese take-out.
