A slice of Mexico

A quesadilla is a Mexican sandwich using tortillas, which are made from flour or corn and look like big, soft pancakes. It can be served as an appetiser, snack or as a light lunch.

Restaurant review

CARAMBA MEXICAN CANTINA 26-30 Elgin Street, Central Tel: 2530-9963 Open: noon-10.45pm This friendly, cheerful place offers the kind of Mexican food you find in the United States - the kind that helps give American citizens the highest obesity rate of any developed nation.

Where all Mexico tastes the same

WHEN Fernando Cortes conquered Mexico some 550 years ago, he brought glory for Spain, gold for the Church and, ultimately, chocolate, jalapeno peppers and turkeys for the stomachs of the world . . .

Mr Cortes also brought back Montezuma's Revenge for bad Mexican food. Since humankind loves pain, bad Mexican restaurants have thrived.
