Mexican food outside of Mexico (as described to us by wikipedia.org)
Most Mexican food found outside of Mexico is limited, generally based on the food of far northern Mexico and the Southwest U.S. Nachos, burritos, fajitas, chili con carne and chimichangas are U.S. inventions for the most part. However, with the growing ethnic Mexican population in the United States, more authentic Mexican food is appearing slowly in the US. One reason is that Mexican immigrants use food as a means of combating homesickness, and for their descendants, it is a symbol of ethnicity. Alternatively, with more Americans experiencing Mexican food in Mexico, there is a growing demand for more authentic flavors.
Anaya’s combines the traditional Mexican flavors with Northern Mexico flavors. In Arizona most of the traditional Mexican restaurants have incorporated the Northern or as I like to call it, the Sonoran style Mexican flavors with some of the Gringo creations and flavors like chimichangas, burritos, and machaca.
Anaya’s has a very unique style and process for cooking. We like to prepare our food as if we were serving it to our family at our home. Home cooked authentic style Mexican food, with traditional and non-traditional favorites, are part of the large selection of food on our menu.
So, come on in and see how our family likes to eat Mexican food.
