    I like them both, but will usually choose Mexican over Chinese.

    That's the amazing thing about the intersection of Chinese and Mexican: the flavor profiles are strikingly similar. Isn't moo shu pork just a distant relative of the burrito? Wouldn't Mexican tamales count as cousins of the Chinese zongzi? The combination may sound strange at first, but after a few bites it all starts to make sense. And while Mexi-Chinese may sound like a new innovation, Chinese and Mexican cuisines have actually been intermingling for hundreds of years now.

    The history of Chinese influence in Mexico began roughly 450 years ago, when Spanish trading ships (the so-called Manila Galleons) brought silk and other Eastern goods to the Western coast of Mexico in exchange for silver. Three hundred years later, Chinese immigrants came to Mexico as cheap labor for major projects including railroads and irrigation. As a result, Chinese ingredients like soy sauce became a regular part of some Mexican diets--"almost a staple in Sinaloa," writes Marilyn Tausend in La Cocina Mexicana: Many Cultures, One Cuisine, "because the port was on the trade route from Asia to the Philippines and on to Mexico." That influence can still be felt in dishes like pescado zarandeado, a Sinaloan classic in which a whole snook is butterflied and broiled with a soy marinade that tastes distinctly Mexican by way of Shanxi.

    American Mexican over American Chinese.

    Chinese Chinese (from my time in Beijing and Shanghai) over Mexican Mexican (over my time in Mexico City, Torreón, and all over the Yucatan).

    My best home-cooked Chinese (Chinese family in São Paulo) against Mexican home-cooked (family in Torreón); Draw. I would do either meal again in heartbeat.

    Mexican, definitely. I didn't expect to find a good Mexican restaurant in Germany, and another good one in Denmark, but here we are.

    Good Chinese Food, or Mexican food.

    There's some pretty bad Chinese Restaurants out there, but thankfully never had a bad Mexican meal.

    So, Good Chinese #1, or else Mexican

    In the 1980s, there was good, cheap, spicy Chinese food all over NYC. Little restaurants called Hunan Village or Szechuan Taste or Szechuan State all over the place. I miss those places.

    Oh wow. That made me think of the Cheong Fun Cart. Cantonese breakfast for a $1.50, another 50 cents to add egg. Hot sauce. Mmmm. Elizabeth and Hester. Get there early before it's gone.

    That sounds awesome. Elizabeth and Hester would have been a hot spot for Cantonese, probably still is.

    It was Mexican until the Warren Zevon song, now it's Chinese.

    Are we talking authentic “pigs ear in glistening jelly” Chinese or Americanized Mongolian Beef?

    I like both Chinese and Mexican Food. And a wide variety of both. So difficult choice.

    I’m assuming we’re taking your Standard mid range restaurant and not fast food of high end stuff.

    With that I’d have to say Mexican because I find myself ordering a much wider range of dishes that I like. With Chinese I often default to a few trusty standards.

    There’s too much cilantro used in Mexican dishes to consider it anything other than a minefield to be avoided at all costs.
