What's this about limited brocolli, asparagus and brussels sprouts? We buy brocolli all the time here, asparagus is very often available and usually the small, delicious aparagus. We don't always find brussel sprouts but run into them here and there. We are big brussel sprout fans so alway buy them when we see them.
I eat Whoppers all the time when in Guadalajara and don't remember whether there was lettuce on them or not. If they skip the mayo, tomatoes or onions, God help them. Lettuce, including the Iceburg they use on Whoppers is available all the time in Jalisco.
What is disappointing down here is the tomatoes which are usually Romas or some sort of cardboard tomato that is practically inedible. They do grow pretty good tomatoes-on-the-vine here but ship most of them to the U.S.
Oh, and lemons are very hard to find since Mexicans don't use them as far as I can tell. Try Costco for real lemons and tomatoes-on-the-vine.
