Being from Texas, I like to think I’m a Mexican food aficionado. Nobody outside of Texas may agree with that statement but it’s a major food group and part of our culture. When traveling, I am most mistaken for Italian, Parisian or British (specifically Londoner) so, I am not a herding cattle or anything like that. Just want to be clear, food as is far as that goes. The one thing I am determined to find in every single country I visit… Mexican food or some variation of it.
Paris, FranceThis is the best Mexican food I have ever had in the entire world. I have been to Paris a few times and quite honestly, I want an apartment in Saint Germain and to walk here rather than take an international flight. Paris is so many hours from Mexico but they cook authentic food. The first time I went, they had just closed and I went back determined. I stayed for hours. The people were so friendly and when I told them I was from Texas, we just talked and had the best time. I ate everything from chips and salsa, guacamole, quesadillas, fajitas… you name it. The margarita was some kind of magic. I’ll leave it at that.

Prague, Czech RepublicI watched a Dallas Cowboys football game here one time while eating chicken fajita tacos. They have more than one location in Prague and both are good. I was there for lunch at both and did not choose anything off the specials because I tend to know what I like when it comes to Mexican food. The chicken fajita tacos were excellent. They had some special sauce that I can’t think of the name but it was amazing on my tacos. There was a cheeky sign near the door on the location in Praha 2. It made me laugh. My waiter in Male Namesti was from South America and he was the coolest.
Cozumel, MexicoI went to Mexico food a wedding and I just knew I was going to find Mexican food even if I was on an island. Maybe I was tired from wedding activities but I don’t think I was. The blackened chicken and tacos here. It’s not at all what I was expecting in Mexico but definitely better. I’m not really a cat person but traveling around the world, I have made more than a few feline friends and this place was no different. They have a cute cat that doesn’t bother you while eating but he makes for a cute photo subject.
