Oh our love for lists...[edit]

Will we also explain the names of all the dishes we mentioned, or will the list just keep being a list? Best wishes Hobbitschuster (talk) 13:23, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Um, patience please! It's been a list for hardly an hour. Yeah, of course we want to describe each. I just wanted to lay out a rough outline of what is needed and haven't had time to detail them yet. Feel free to start on that. Texugo (talk) 13:33, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
I shall be patient hence ;-) And yes it might be a good idea to list the most important items of Mexican cuisine before going into details ;-). Best wishes Hobbitschuster (talk) 13:36, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
And now it's been over 2 years and this article is still a long list, without even a definition for most terms. How is any of this travel-related? Having never set foot in Mexico, I'm not the one to do it, but it would seem most useful to explain what types of eateries there are in Mexico, what kind of food, drink and service to expect in each type, and what kinds of special regional foods and drinks visitors should look out for in different regions of Mexico. I think it would also make sense to have sections for the related cuisines of former parts of Mexico that are now in the United States, i.e. New Mexican, Tex-Mex and Cal-Mex cuisines.

Origin of the beans[edit]

Frijoles seem to be native to Central and South America. Or am I missing something here? Vidimian (talk) 17:38, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

It appears that you are right. Please plunge forward and correct accordingly! Hobbitschuster (talk) 17:50, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
I just couldn't come up how best to modify that part of the guide without sounding boring, which I guess was the main reason why I started this thread instead of simply editing. Additional trivia on the origins of the beans: They have been one of the three sisters of the Native American agriculture since ancient times. Vidimian (talk) 17:57, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

[edit]

What kind of banner should we put here? There has got to be something on Commons... Otherwise someone could maybe take a picture on their next trip to the Mexican food place after ordering "everything" ;-) Hobbitschuster (talk) 19:59, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Food or cuisine?[edit]

Is there any good reason not to retitle this article "Mexican cuisine"? Don't all the other "Nation/region food" articles actually use "cuisine", rather than "food" in their titles? We had a discussion about that somewhere. Ikan Kekek (talk) 03:47, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

I'm retitling the article now. Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:15, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
