    We have a lot of violations in the South West and issues with mom & pop Mexican Restaurants. I am wondering if it's a cultural thing to take a shit and not wash your hands?? LOL

    DINNER IS NOT SERVED!

    I don't know about proper hand washing but "bathroom ed" in Mexico is much different here in the states. This is not a joke either, this is a cultural thing they are taught. But its not just in Mexico, "plumbing problems" are prevalent in a lot of countries including Russia, where we saw first hand during the winter Olympics, they don't flush toilet paper after wiping either, it either thrown into a waste basket or the corner, or behind the toilet for someone else to clean up.

    It very possible that "feces transfer" can happen in these restaurants, how it ends up in the food prep area, by foot probably icon_question.gif


    Why do Mexicans throw their dirty toilet paper in the corner 4?

    I eat Mexican more often than any other cuisine but can't recall ever getting sick from it. I have however gotten sick many times from Asian restaurants. My ex used to work at one of the most popular sushi restaurants here and he told me they would scold him if they caught him using hot water to disinfect the cutting boards that the raw fish was prepared on. He was instructed to use cold water only because "hot too expensive!" I got sick from this restaurant as well as some of my friends before he started working there.

    Radd saidI eat Mexican more often than any other cuisine but can't recall ever getting sick from it. I have however gotten sick many times from Asian restaurants.

    One time in a Chinese restaurant I had a salad, and I started choking and gasping for air. It wasn't a chunk of food, I think the cause may have been too much MSG. To which I never knew I was that sensitive.

    Other than that experience, I love Asian restaurants. Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Korean, Vietnamese, also Indian. I love 'em all.

    As for Mexican, I actually prefer the Americanized Tex-Mex version. To which many Americans turn-up their noses: "Oh, that's not AUTHENTIC Mexican."

    No, of course I know it's not. But after living in San Antonio, Texas for 4 years, pretty much the home of Tex-Mex, I prefer it. I've been to Mexico many times, and I still prefer Tex-Mex. And have never gotten sick on Tex-Mex.

    And actually, I never get sick from any restaurants. The worst is some stomach cramping if I have a lot of red meet, my aging body doesn't accept beef so well as it once did. But aside from that proviso, I pretty much eat where and what I want.

    The tragedy is that when I was young I almost despised eating, it was like having to stop and fill my car's gas tank, a chore. And I was thin as a rail. Now older, I enjoy food, and fine dining, but can't indulge. If I even look at food I gain another 2 pounds. Such are the ironies of life. icon_sad.gif

    Tex-Mex is not real food! Who the fuck puts gravy on a burrito? Okay, after being reminded that Tex-Mex exists, I really do hate Texas now! icon_mad.gif

    Best ever, authentic, carne asada I ever had was from one of LA's famous taco trucks, the Mexican restaurants want to put out of business. In LA, there is at least one in every district icon_razz.gif

    Food is what you like, my dear. Lots of people eat stuff that **I** don't like. Should I stop them, or bitch about it, like you are doing?

    Truth is I'll eat almost anything, always willing to try something new. I may like it, I may not. But at least I'm gonna give it a try.

    As it happens I like Tex-Mex, better than authentic Mexican, which I've eaten in Mexico itself. You evidently do not like Tex-Mex. Fine. Why is this a point of offensive contention? Rather than just an expression of personal preference?

    Not limited to Mexican restaurants .

    About 90% of the people I know who have traveled to China in the last few years, and have not eaten exclusively at high-end restaurants, have gotten sick.

    You guys think Tex-Mex is bad, you should give Mexican Chinese a try for some really bad shit(s). SD has a few such places and they are they worst. Egg roll? Visualize a burned, squashed tamale floating in a pool of grease and filled with I know not what, but with the consistency of mucilage. They even foul fried rice!

    As far as the TP tradition goes, check out the parking lot of a K-mart, Walmart, or Hispanic supermercado sometime if you want to see if it's Pampers or Huggies who wins the containment contest. Answer: there's no winner here.

    Especially in the small towns and rural areas of Mexico where poverty is rampant and modern sanitation is scarce to nonexistant.

    I've been all over the world (123 countries to date) and have never gotten sick from eating at dirty restaurants. Here's how I did it when I traveled so much: I'd observe the place before I'd go in. I noticed whether the landscaping, parking lot, sidewalk, entrance, floors, painting, walls, are clean and normal looking. Anytime I'd see a seedy look, I didn't stay. Check around, just observe - while you're waiting for your table. Do you like what you see? Maybe check the bathroom. If you can glance into the kitchen, see what your impressions are. How do the servers look? If I ever got any bad vibes, I didn't stay. I never got sick that way.
