The cuisine you’ll find at the Mexican restaurants in Adelaide
Mexican cuisine is packed with fresh ingredients, from the stone-ground corn flour in tortillas to the smashed avocado in guacamole and the crushed lime in margaritas. From the time of the Aztecs until today, Mexicans have utilised many vegetables, grains and seeds including corn, beans and chilli peppers. The arrival of the Spanish introduced many new foods into the already existing cuisine, and over time, Mexican food evolved into what it is today. Recognisable dishes like burritos are popular in the Tex-Mex kitchen, and although they are often considered to be Mexican, they are actually a mix of Tejano (Texan), Californian and Mexican cuisines. You can decide for yourself which style of Mexican cooking you prefer when sampling food from the many different types of Mexican restaurants in Adelaide.
