This London Establishment Sells Bad Mexican Food –and Awful Spanish Grammar

This doesn’t make sense, you know?

The owners of this fine establishment in London would be well advised to take a quick Spanish-language course or –at the very least– brush up on their masculine and feminine nouns.

But I guess they’re busy concocting “food” that they hope will pass as “Mexican” without anybody noticing. Alas, my European, non-Hispanic, non-Mexican correspondent noticed…

At this point, I’m not sure if I’m cringing over their grammar or their “food.”

Starbucks Wants you to ‘Celbrate’ Something in Spanish

I don’t mean to ruin their bilingual, toasted Christmas-y spirit, but the folks over at this Starbucks in Chicago would be well advised to spend some time on their Spanish-language copy –or just stick to English if they cannot find one Spanish speaker in a city that is 30 percent Hispanic.

I’m not sure she touched her food and/or drank her Sprite, but she looks pretty happy to be down there, surrounded by some other gringos and plenty of salsas.

Somebody should tell Taco Bell the meaning of “ladilla” or give them a Spanish-English dictionary because… I am ON VACATION!

Dear Americans: Please Take Note, and Hold Down the Fort While I Go on Vacation, Will Ya?

The Real Mexican Food Manifesto

Dear Readers:

I know Twitter, Facebook, Instagram et al have been stealing time and energy from this blogger and I have not been able to keep my promise of posting something here everyday as I used to in the dial-up AOL.com, pre-Zuckerberg era.

And now, as if all that weren’t tragic enough, I’ve decided to embark on a late, long vacation in an undisclosed location (check out my Instagram account if you’re REALLY dying to know where I’ll be,) so I won’t be able to update this thing as often as I would like.

That said, I am reaching out to you TODAY to ask for your help in spreading the above manifesto, which will help restore the sacredness of the food from my homeland, and hopefully contravene the terrible transgressions it has endured throughout these years.

I trust you will read –and memorize– the above manifesto and help this blogger put a stop to the nonsense of spreading shredded cheddar on top of stuff and/or mistaking a burrito for a quesadilla or –worse– a corn tortilla for a flour one.

Keep me in your thoughts and prayers and think of me every time you find an authentic enchilada. 🙏🏻

Here she is at the height of her brief – yet wondrous – career:
