El Paso Mexican Restaurant keeps the dominant flavors of authentic Mexican cuisine alive with its unique, homemade dishes.

[SPRINGFIELD, 3/28/2018] – Different types of Mexican cuisine have cropped up in the U.S., making it a nationwide staple. El Paso Mexican Restaurant keeps the legacy of authentic Mexican food alive by serving homemade dishes made from the freshest ingredients.

The Evolution of Mexican Cuisine

Mexican food holds a special place in Americans’ hearts and stomachs. It’s apparent in various Mexican-inspired food and beverage concepts found around the U.S.—the popularity of Taco Bell, the use of frozen margarita machines in Mexican restaurants, and the investment of the tequila industry in Cinco de Mayo celebrations. Ultimately, the nationwide love affair with Mexican fare led to the birth of various iterations of Mexican cuisine, including:

• Cal-Mex – This type of Mexican food is “healthier” since it has a greater emphasis on fish, veggies, garlic, guacamole, sour cream, and avocado ingredients. Cal-mex cuisine leans toward crispy rather than soft taco shells.
• Lonchero – Taking off from traditional Mexican cooking methods, Lonchero-inspired cuisine takes its inspiration from food truck preparation methods: meat on store-bought tortillas and topped with salsa and spices.
• Alta California – A fusion of Mexican fine dining and Mexican-American fare, this type of food gives a sophisticated twist to traditional Mexican food —tortilla chips topped with wild boar, for instance.
• Tex-Mex – Tex-Mex enthusiasts love their food with beans, peppers and spices, cheese, and quality meat.

Despite the cuisine’s various subgroups, the taste of authentic Mexican flavors can’t be surpassed.
