So you want to eat Mexican food, do you?  Some advice:

–  Salsa verde >> salsa roja, unless it’s chipotle in which case it’s a closer match

–   Never eat at VIPS or Sanborns if you can help it; you’ll get charged twice as much for food that’s half the quality of the mom-and-pop restaurant across the street

–   Longaniza is good.  Suadero is good.  Campechanos—a mixing of the two—is excellent.  Don’t settle, go for the campechanos.

–  Café con leche is not evenly defined—some places it’s a latte, some places it’s a café au lait, some places it’s an Americano with milk, some places it depends on the barista who happens to serve you.   Specify if you have a strong preference.

–  Pack Tums (and perhaps a PPI), you will get heartburn
