Get to Know Us: Scarlett Lindeman, Mexican Eats

It's my opinion that those claiming that Mexican food, an incredible expanse of a cuisine spanning different regions, geographies, the influence of other cultures, etc., in NYC sucks are short-sighted.

We may not have the scale (Texas boasts 4 million Mexican people. New York, less than 600,000), the diversity of estados (New Mexico), or the direct proximity to the motherland (Los Angeles), but the Mexican food that is represented here is NYC is a unique and valuable one.

I have lived in Mexico. I recently moved to NYC from LA. I speak Spanish. Gracias por verificando mis calificaciones, pero no me mames.
