The Grey Lady ain't what she used to be, but still is better than most newspapers. From last Sunday's NYT, a great article on Tamales, Tortas and Tacos in Mexico City.
Most of what you get in America is not what Mexicans eat. There are very few places where you can get that kind of food. In Eau Claire, WI, that is pretty much limited to Taqueria Sandoval and Tacos Juanita (which happen to be the top 2 rated Mexican restaurants in EC on Yelp, proving at least enough people have good taste).
Fun article. Makes me want to both go to Mexico City and to eat real Mexican food - It might be time for a run to Taqueria Sandoval for some Tamales that they serve out of a 40 gallon pot by the front cash register.
