Mexican food is the third most complex cuisine in the world and the first example of fusion cooking.
The verb “antojar” can be explained in several ways: it can simply mean to feel like, as in “I feel like eating Mexican food tonight”; or it can be stronger and more forceful, as in “I crave” or “I long for.”
There is no real, legitimate and literary translation for the word “antojitos.” A quick investigation in two separate dictionaries has come up with “typical Mexican snacks, usually bought at street stands” and “Mexican appetizers,” both of which are absolutely correct but fail miserably to convey the true essence of antojitos and the role they play in every day Mexican life. A brief crawl through the El Sol kitchen, on the other hand, has come up with considerably more inspired and imaginative suggestions: sudden cravings, hankerings, little whims or fancies - all of which evoke gastronomic pleasure and spontaneity.
MGTV Table for Two treats our viewers to a feast of Mexican street food such as Tacos, Burritos, Shrimp Diablo, home made guacamole and tamales: sudden cravings, hankerings, little whims or fancies - all of which evoke gastronomic pleasure and spontaneity. Muy bien!
From the grilled steak with peppers and sweet onions to the Camarones Rellenos - shrimp stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon El Sol cuisine satisfies the antojitos for Mexican street food.
