oh well, at least they were delicious!
I'd be like "hell yea lets go!"

they now have tacos with Shells that are basically a big Dorito, taste absolutely amazing!
Taco Bell food is not even close to being considered Mexican food though.

thats what i did.

taco bell might not be considered mexican for you, cause mexican culture is much more intrincated in your country than in mine. We dont even have mexican food here, so taco bell is the closest i ever experienced to "mexican food". Thats how far my culture is from mexico, and thats why it is absurd that we are lumped together.

A lot of Mexican food in the U.S. is Tex-Mex. Not all, but most.

I agree, and if you do come back go to Chipotle. they have tacos and burritos that are 10 times better than the ones at taco bell.

Don't tell them you're from Latin America. Say Argentina. And as pointed out the Latin America = Mexico isn't true everywhere in the country, particularly the Northeast. But there people might assume Latin America = Caribbean, or maybe Central America. Which isn't much better.

Its kinda true, steak is the main thing here. Good wines too.

And then a lot of italian food (majority of argentinians are from italian descent).

I wish we had more Mexican food though.
Its probably my favourite food and i rarely get to eat it.
