there's this restaurant in LA that came highly recommended by the foraz that I thought wasn't particularly great ... with the exception of tortillas and a small cup of avocado butter. Fantastic.

Purists go with corn foo.giffoo.giffoo.giffoo.giffoo.giffoo.gif

I don't know what this symbol ( foo.gif ) is supposed to mean though.

I go with flour usually.

I thought Frontera was supposed to be firmly rooted in central Mexican food. Authentic or not, that shit is tasty.

Central Mexico isn't really where authentic Mexican food comes from though.

Mexican food actually from Mexico isn't real Mexican food.

Real Mexicans take that hand tossed fresh flour tortilla, rip off a piece, and use it to pick up items off their plate. You've obviously never eaten a meal with real Mexicans. (5/10)

Which is better I think really depends on what you're eating.

With real Mexicans? Of course not. What an idea!

There are no real Mexicans.

New Mexico is much more modern than regular Mexico.

Somewhere in Mexico, some people are mocking others for the paltry quality of authentic bacon cheeseburgers and lox bagels in their area

I liked old Mexico's stuff until they got too commercial and sold out. New Mexico is just pop crap.

And NYC pizza. Don't forget the pizza. Is there any more tiresome discussion of authenticity than those regarding pizza?

In New Mexico you can get really surprised at what comes out covered in green chile without asking for it.
