    If an authentic place were going to be successful, it would already exist. There are plenty of "Mexican" places here, yet it astounds me how... completely not Mexican they are. They aren't even Tex-Mex! They're just southern food, maybe with some tabasco sauce, and a Spanish plate name slapped on for show.

        Forgot to answer: no, there are no Latino areas of Columbia, and those that are Latino are probably not Mexican.
