When Mr. Roth purchased the Ghirardelli Chocolate Factory and turned it into what is now the famous Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco he asked me if I would come in with a Mexican restaurant. Ar that time I knew about as much about Mexican food as my great grandmother in the Pyrenees Mountains in France. So, when you don't know anything about something, you go and learn about it. I ate Mexican food until it almost gave me an odor. In Mexico it was pretty greasy. The finest Mexican food I have enjoyed came from what is it known as Tex-Mex. Now, I know I'm going to make a lot of Mexicans sore as hell-you really have to understand that I am an American, not a Mexican, and I eat what pleases me most. -Trader Vic + FREE BONUS BOOK.
