An American Spaniard in France or: How I Learned to Make an Ass of Myself in Three Cultures

Our Tex-Mex

Leave a comment

From the menu of a national pizza chain.

What I love is that, of the six items listed, not a single one is in any way “Tex” or “Mex.”

For those who don’t know, chicken nuggets (in their current popular form) were inflicted upon the world by McDonald’s in 1983; chicken wings (aka Buffalo wings) originated in Buffalo, New York; onion rings don’t seem to have a cool origin story; mozzarella sticks are clearly an Italian-American creation placing their point of origin in a town with a significant second-gen population; steak fries and French fries, while sometimes appearing alongside a burger in a Tex-Mex place, still don’t qualify.

For the record, I prefer New Mexican style food if I can’t get straight Mex. Anita’s forever!
