Much to the chagrin of the expat community in Daegu, Mexican cuisine has been famed for having had slippery, greasy fingers when it comes to trying to latch onto the fickle tastes of local citizens and becoming a permanent fixture in the city’s burgeoning international food scene. When it comes to Tex-Mex (or even Koreanized Tex-Mex), […]
