Truly Authentic Mexican Food in DFW

Truly Authentic Mexican Food in DFW

Since moving to Dallas I've eaten some fantastic Tex-Mex, yet I still haven't found a restaurant that serves what I consider authentic Mexican food. My point of comparison is a place called Tu y Yo in Somerville, Massachusetts, just near Tufts University. There you can find corn flour turnovers stuffed with fried grasshoppers, frog legs in green mole, and several meat dishes that incorporate pumpkin seeds, cactus fruit, along with peppers and other aromatics. Can any of the board's knowledgeable readers suggest a similar establishment in DFW?

Many thanks!
