So, we went to Cafe Cancun II for dinner tonight. It was your typical mid-Western “Mexican” food. Lots of cheese. Not even very Tex Mex. Kinda Taco Bell on a ceramic plate (“Watch out, plate is hot.”)
Anyhow, the food was…blah and…whatever. And the food was salty. If you know what a salt vampire I am, you know that for me to say that food is salty is very meaningful. Also, the “sweet tea” was also the sweetest I’ve had yet in Georgia.
But the overpriced, bad Mexican food was almost worth the conversation between the genuine Mexican waiter and the guys in the booth behind ours:
Cracker: What’s a enchilada?
Waiter: Um, it’s a corn tortilla filled with cheese…with red sauce.
Cracker: What kid of sauce?
Waiter: Um, red.
Cracker: What’s a burrito?
Waiter: It’s like an enchilada, but with a flour tortilla and it’s also filled with beef or chicken.
Cracker: Uh, I’ll have one of those.
Holy crap! Um…what’s ice cream? What’s spaghetti? What’s a Caesar salad?
No more cactus burritos as big as your head for $5. We’re not in the Mission anymore.
