    I get depressed every time I watch these because yesterday I spent $13 on chipotle and he just bought a while feast for $5 and it's probably 100x better than chipotle lol

    What passes for carnitas here in New York would probably make most Mexicans cry. There was 1 place that made it well but they closed down.

    Right now I have a 10 lb. beef brisket and 12 lbs. of pork cushion thawing and ready for a warm smoke on my back porch. This unusual warm break will precede next week's snow and near zero temperatures. This is just in time for the Super Bowl Weekend (an American Indulgence) to be done before the winds and temperature make outside cooking impracticable. If you are in No. Colorado, come on by for a glorious feast and Super Bowl madness! Burnt Ends delicious candy and pulled pork. Can't beat it.

    Mexico is a good culinary destination but violence between cartels have ruined everything and people don't want to come for that reason .

    Truly disappointed in you mikey. 10 percent tip? That's disgustingly low. Especially when you make money off eating there and some of these places feed you for free. To tip 10 percent only on foods that cost a fraction of what it does in America makes me really disappointed in you

      You were in my top 3 food vloggers but now you barely make the top 10. 10 percent of a 5 dollar meal is 50 cents.

    I grew up in mexico and this video made me so hungry! You just can't food like that in the US. I really miss the food you could get from street vendors. Some of the best tamales I ever had were from the street vendor who would come around in the evenings. When we heard the steam whistle the vendor had, that meant we were having tamales that night!

    Hey Mike do you have the recipe for making the sweet tamales and how to spell it? Please let me know. I blog for Google as the Disabled Diner here in WI and would like to let my followers know where they can get it here. Thank you and looking forward to hearing from you.

    Try Mexican seafood from Sinaloa (Mazatlán), food from Puebla is delicious, or food from Yucatán. Mexican food is very diverse, extensive and delicious.

    I used to love the chicken, we would go to the original spot were they made it la cabaña think was called on outskirts of morelia and to counter any dry parts of chicken you moist it with the super spicy sauce. The best barbacoa tacos I have ever tried was a stand behind the dominos by the main entrance to the city early Am they finished fast.
