The rebirth of the real Mexico - For decades Australians have laboured under the false impression that tacos, nachos and chilli con carne are the living embodiment of Mexican cuisine. RN First Bite traces the birth of 'real' Mexican back to the Aztec Empire.

antojito - traditional dish, small in size (not to be confused with botana)===

botana - snack, appetizer (not to be confused with antojito)===

La botana va acompañada de bebidas con alcohol: cerveza, tequila, mezcal, ron, vodka, o suavecitas como anís, jerez, ó rompope; mientras que los antojitos según la hora se acompañan con atole, café, agua de frutas, tejate, horchata ó refresco. Otro punto es que la botana precede a una comida ó cena fuerte y los antojitos no.

Traigo el betivé para el que no ve
Y con esa yerba se casa usted

In restaurants, strangers seeing each other's eyes instinctively say "buen provecho" before eating. It's an earnest wish that their food should not only be tasty, but really pleasurable, and that the hope that their life will be a bit better as a result. There really is no English equivalent. Even our adopted "bon appétit" pales in significance.

September is 'Mes de la Patria' in Mexico and we'd like to celebrate by eating tasty Mexican food. Come hungry!

"Everyone is invited to Septehambre," says founder Ron Mader. "This is play on words 'Septiembre' meaning 'September' and 'Hambre' meaning 'hunger.' We ask that you seek out and taste singular, exceptional Mexican food. If you visit restaurants and markets, please responsible tourism photography by asking if you can take a photo. If the answer is negative, please respect the local wishes."

Septehambre is open to everyone eating Mexican food in Mexicoand around the world. For example, the Planeta Wiki documents some of our favorite Mexican restaurants outside of Mexico. Please share tips about places you would recommend and introduce us to the stars of the kitchens and markets."

"Let's create a slow, savory adventure," adds Mader. "September has 30 days. Eat something delicious every day. That in itself should be its own reward."
