The Whole Enchilada : ¡Ask a Mexican! columnist Gustavo Arellano talks taco shop with a restaurant criticnew

In 2006, the Weekly Alibi became the only newspaper with the cojones to take a chance on a newly syndicated column called ¡Ask a Mexican!

To get the skinny—if there is such a thing—on Mexican food in the U.S., Alibi restaurant critic Ari LeVaux broke tortillas with Arellano about his new book, Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America.
