Hello, my name is Roberto Ramirez and for my interview on “The Best Cook”, I interview my friend Lily who I’ve known since high school. The following interview took place on February 20, 2012 as she made her way to school in San Bernardino.
Q: Who is the best cook in your family?
A: I would have to say my mother is the best cook in the family, I believe she’s the best because she has always been the family’s main cook. I guess I’m just use to eating her food and she has always seemed to have the right authentic Mexican taste to her food.
Q: What is your favorite Mexican dish?
A: My favorite Mexican dish is Pozole. My mom typically makes it from pork, but the seasoning used makes the corn grains be very delicious.
Q: What is your first experience eating ethnic food?
A: My first experience eating something besides Mexican food was when I went to a Salvadorean Restaurant located in the Huntington Park area. The first thing that I ordered was pupusas. They are very delicious because everything is hand made. I love this place so much, I’ve been going there for at least 15 years.
Q: Which is your favorite Mexican Food Restaurant?
A: My favorite restaurant is King Taco. King Taco always has the best carne asada burritos. They are very delicious when they are drenched in hot salsa.
Q: Why do you like this restaurant?
A: I like this restaurant for the good food and because they are easily available to get to all around Los Angeles County and the Inland Empire.
Q: Why do you believe Mexican Food is very popular?
A: I’m not sure why Mexican food is very popular, but probably because the food is offered in many different locations and a lot of the Mexican dishes are very spicy and many people tend to like spicy food.
Q: What kind of tacos do you like and what do you like on them?
A: I like carne asada tacos. I do not like to add cilantro or onions but I like “cotija cheese” and green salsa. They are very good, better than any other option available.
