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.
