The correct answer is: there is no Mexican dish that starts with the letter W; this is because the letter is very seldom used in their own language. According to researchers, the letter W does not exist in Spanish, the letter only came recently in Spanish, and it occurs only as a foreign loan word from English.

No Mexican dish starts with the word W; this can be checked using the glossary of Mexican dishes. There is other food sold in Mexico that actually starts with the word W; most of the Mexicans can’t pronounce the letter W. Hence food like waffles are produced as gwah -fleh by the Mexicans. In summary, the Mexican has different types of dishes, but no dish starts with the word W.

The correct answer to this question is: There are no Mexican dishes which starts with the letter “W”. The reason for this answer is because the letter W is very seldom used in their own language. A little research would inform you that the letter W only came recently in Spanish and only occurs in foreign loan words from English.

For example, if you find waffles sold in Mexico, Mexican will not pronounce it as “waffles” because they do not pronounce the letter W and most people are also incapable of pronounce the letter. Hence, waffles would be pronounced by Mexicans as “gwah-flehs”. Check the glossary of the Mexican food and you will see that there are really no Mexican dishes that start with the letter W.
