Mexico

There's actually a Latin America taqueria just half a block from my house that seems like it's putting in a lot of effort at authenticity but I've never been there because it looks expensive, I really should check it out.

Although I really wouldn't know if it was authentic or not, I'd have to trust their word on it. We don't exactly get a lot of Mexican immigrants in Australia. I wish we had more!

Yeah that's what I'm assuming. The area has a fairly high Muslim population and there were actually quite a few other people at the 'Mexican' diner so I guess they liked the food just fine.
I didn't actually dislike the food but it was a perfectly fine if somewhat bland middle eastern platter as far as I'm concerned.
