    There are some good food in Mexico yes, but there are plenty of mediocre cooks in this country who would like to overcharge you. Avoid Mexico City and Cancun if you're looking for authentic, economical food.

    Funny enough we usually always have carnitas for breakfast because the good pieces are always gone early. That or if you're lucky enough to have someone in your family who knows how to make them then you can have them any time of day! Also, those are corn tortillas lol
