At one of my favourite local Mexican haunts they list Flautas and Taquitos as separate meals. One day, they were out of flautas and the waiter suggested I get taquitos as they are "the same".
They definitely tasted similar, but why are they listed as separate entities if they are the same?
Can anyone shed some light on this?
The flauta I'm refering to is a deep fried corn tortilla filled with chicken approximately the same size as a spring roll.
