If you have never been to the Mexico then please consider putting it on your to do list. Sample the flavors of Mexico in liquid form like Tequila, Mezcal and agua frescas. Try chapulines (grasshoppers), a regional favorite of Oaxaca. There are usually ceviches, tortas, tamales and tacos.
The Taste of Mexico seemed scaled down but this is not a bad thing. Instead of a day and night event it returned to its humble beginnings as a night event only. What I loved about it was the homier family style feel. There were new touches like table and long bar tables. There was amazing long salsa bar setup and long lines waiting to devour the sauces.
