Just a Taste

In this week's

Chef Special

, Sylvia Casares-Copeland, chef and owner of Sylvia's Enchilada Kitchen, answers a few burning questions, including:

What are you sick of? "People who put down Tex-Mex! I grew up in Brownsville. And I am proud to be cooking the food that I grew up eating. When people tell me they love my restaurant because the food isn't Tex-Mex, they are trying to be nice, but they are putting me and my food and background down. Like Tex-Mex isn't real cooking!"

Find out what Sylvia's been drinking lately (hint: The Champs) and more in the next issue of the Houston Press.
