For those of you who might be learning about this for the first time, Best of the Best, What’s Up’s readers’ choice contest, was split into four sections this year. Winners of the third round, Around Town, are now up online, so that leaves us with our last section – Border Eats.
If there’s one thing that unites us in the borderland, it’s our love for food. Sure, feuds might erupt when discussing whether Tex Mex is an insult to Mexican cuisine or not, and the battle between vegetarians, vegans and meat lovers can seem as if it’ll never end, but at the end of the day, the need to eat surpasses taste buds and culinary values.
So on Sept. 22, I invite you to visit WhatsUpPub.com and nominate your favorite restaurants and chefs in plenty of categories. We’re still smoothing those categories out at the moment, but I can guarantee you’ll see some new ones, including more that recognize the abundance of Mexican dishes El Paso has to offer.
