What Is the Best Taco [chat]

edited October 2022 in Debate and/or Discourse
The Taco is perfection, The Taco is life.

Everyone buy this book:

The proper taco consists of a fresh masa / fat thin pressed tortilla, your filling, a sauce and a light topping.

Since I was unprepared I will wait until my next chat to talk about dried chilis.

    Fish tacos are good but pastor is best

    Fish tacos are also achievable at home while pastor is not

    People love birria but honestly, it's too much for me. The traditional kind has so much glutamate that my mouth cannot handle it. The first bite is heaven and then it turns on me.

    The place I went was literally in the north shore mall: Amigo's. It wasn't the best mexican food I've ever had but it was maybe the most surprisingly good

    Last night when I was making tacos I went to put the seasoning in and the instructions said "add 1/4 cup of water and 4 Tablespoons of seasoning"

    My sibling in Christ, that is the same amount given in two different units. Why are you trying to confuse me?

    ***

    There's an unofficial pool going at the clinic for "first snow in Spokane that doesn't melt on contact with the ground" so basically the first time that the ground turns white, even if it doesn't stick around for more than an hour

    I chose October 29, next Saturday. Because it seems early but we almost always get one little snow dusting before Halloween.

    Lengua has a low floor and a high ceiling but it's one of the few things that I think raw onion is indispensable for.

    you know I've not loved lengua the few times I've had it. the texture was interesting but not super pleasant and it tasted underseasoned, like the meat was too tight to accept the seasoning. It's always fun for the sort of shock factor in a culture that doesn't eat animal tongues or cheeks or organs anymore, but standalone I didn't feel it was that strong.

    dag

    no worries actually
    I’ve had amazing buche and I’ve had mediocre buche. It depends on how the place cooks it and what with. The good stuff is like pan cooked, the other place I think either didn’t do as high a heat or steamed the shit out of it it was bland and not good

    Ah nexmex is in the mall too I think. I am unsure as to its authenticity, and I’ve discovered my ability to determine quality is bad. However it is one of the only places that seemingly takes its food safety seriously so we can trust ‘‘em to make food for my wife.

    I picked pollo but really for me the best taco is just

    Soft flour tortillas
    Seasoned ground beef
    Cheese
    Salsa
    Sour cream

    I'll put some rabbit food in every so often but too often it feels and tastes like wet shredded plastic
