I'm from California and moved to Portland.  And although there didn't used to be good Mexican food, now there is.  You just have to know which rock to look under.
Uri and I "discovered" Mexican food in our 4 years in So.Cal - we both grew up thinking we didn't much like it, but the stuff down there was a revelation.
Now, we are still turning over rocks up here. Just went to a new Mexican restaurant last week - very disappointing.

I'll add, Californians that move to the Pac NW
This is a reoccurring theme for you.

I feel this way about some Californians I know that came to live in the Northwest.  Yes - it rains.  Yes the Mexican food isn't as good.  

:D

Californians in any place outside California. Just stay there so Lex Luthor can shove you all off into the ocean!

Hey hey.. I started this peeve complaining about people being insulting to the local cultures not I feel like I am being insulted.  OK, I am not a born and breed Californian but it is the last place I lived before moving overseas and can't wait to go back and visit next month.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.
