Mexican Food Chicago

Need for the recognition of the - Mexican Food Chicago

Chicago, Illinois is the largest Mexican community outside a border state and it is a second largest in the United States.

In the south of the United States, especially California and Texas the Mexican American Culture is very present, including the great and tasteful Mexican American food called Tex-Mex food and Cal-Mex food.

This food is Americanized Mexican food and it can’t be called just Mexican or American due to its uniqueness.

The influence of the Texan culture on the Mexican food in Texas is more than obvious as well as the influence of the Californian culture on Mexican food served in California. Thus, the special names of these cuisines: The Tex-Mex and Cal-Mex food.

Our argument is that the same thing happened in the Illinois. To be more specific we believe that Chicago’s (Illinois’s) culture had influence on the Mexican food prepared there, and that the Mexican food served in Chicago is not the same as the Mexican food served in Mexico, Texas, California, Canada or Europe.

In other words the Mexican food served in Chicago should also be acknowledged as unique and separate type of Mexican cuisine, with special dishes and flavors that are specific to this part of the Unites States.

That is why we suggest that the Mexican food that is prepared and served in Chicago needs to be named and recognized as one of many Chicago’s treasures.

This food brand can be called Mexican Food Chicago or Mex-Chicago’s Food or Chi-Mex Food, or something else, but what is important is that it has the name, and the recognition.
