Some of my favorite Mexican dishes include Quesadillas and Tacos, but as I said before they have to be made with fresh ingredients; none of that frozen junk.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. What does Mexican food have to do with Japan? I’ll explain. Back when I was living in Japan I could not find a good place to get Mexican food to save my life, and I spent a lot of time looking. I did eventually find one semi-decent place up in Chiyoda-ku, but I never did find a really great place. So, instead, I started making my own Mexican food at home; from time to time my friends and I would even have chili cook-offs and Mexican night. The picture here is of the enchiladas that I used to serve.
I’d love to hear what other kinds of food people have trouble tracking down in Japan, so send me your lists and I’ll publish ’em here.
