What fresh Hell is this?

7 August 2013

From THOSE PEOPLE responsible for convincing the educationally challenged of the world that some corn-based napkin holder in some way resembled a taco comes what Eater.com calls “the latest in breakfast hybrid technology.” Which is sort of like Dr. Frankenstien calling his monster the latest in zombie-hybrid technology, I guess.

Whatever this thing is, keep it out of Mexico. Taco Bell tried (to great hilarity) to foist their bizarre creations on Mexico back in 2007, opening a store in Monterrey — which sometimes takes a perverse pride in being “like the United States” (meaning: overpriced, pretentious and where one is likely to die of multiple gunshot wounds) — but even they could stomach those things.

WTF

    Jack in the Box is doing something like this too – I’ll try it there. Taco Bell needs to stick to the basics – honest, fake Mexican food.

    There’s a local Long Beach, California restaurant chain, Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles, which started back in the 1970’s. Quite popular in a sort-of cultish way for their menu choices, though they riff on US Southern food. I’ve never eaten in one because waffles aren’t a favorite. Still friends say the combo is quite tasty, though one must be certain the items are freshly made (think of dried-out pastry accompanied by dessicated chicken). Certainly the fast food taco places are trying to compete. I’m not sure I share your derision because tacos whether open-faced or folded are not all that interesting as food. A quickie fuel-up maybe. My maternal grandmother’s family used to think of them as slightly above cheese on a Ritz cracker…if only for the spinkle of greens.
