I went there in the 80s. It was all pretty disgusting with the exception of the sea food in Merida.
It was certainly nothing like the food you see today that is more Texmex. I didnt see one fajita, enchilada, or burrito. I saw chunks of meat encased in an inch of fat in gravy. Chicken mole (a truly vile mix of black chocolate, chillies and spices), and some rank meat on a corn tortilla that gave me the sh*ts for 3 days.
I ended up eating milanesa and rice, as the only edible food.
I am a big fan of real Mexican food too and definitely not the Tex-Mex stuff. Thankfully, I have found a couple of really good places around here. A few tacos and a good habanero sauce are my favorites. Preferably with a good cerveza or two.
