Being 1/2 Puerto Rican and living in Southern California my entire life, I am accustomed to good Hispanic food.
This might seem like an extreme statement, but there is no good Hispanic food in Texas.
I've tried semi-casual, I have tried sit down restaurants recommended by locals. All of it has been disgusting.
I'm terribly disappointed. Us Californians really take our Hispanic food for granted. We have Cuban, Mexican, etc. In Texas? You get Tex-Mex.
Can you tell it is a slow news day 'round these parts?
