For this chapter of my Mexican vacation, I wanted to focus on the meals that I ate in restaurants, outdoor taco stands and even a market stall. All of them were wonderful and I was in heaven.
One word about the service in Mexican restaurants before I get to the food. In Mexico, I noticed that the service is much different than in the US. For one, the servers don’t come to your table unless you ask them. Not to say that they won’t bring you a menu when you sit down, they will, it’s that they believe in letting you enjoy yourself without the constant water pouring (you have to ask for water, bottled please) and the checking up on you as they do in the States. But don’t think that they aren’t paying attention, they are….and they are ready at a moments notice. I like their style of service. The non-vulturizing is nice when you are having an intense conversation and don’t want to be interrupted. Also, they won’t bring the bill until you ask, “La quinta, por favor”(The bill, please). Why you ask? It’s simply because they don’t want you to feel as if you are being herded out. Stay as long as you like…they are in no rush and you shouldn’t be either. I think people over here could learn something from them.
