We actually do enjoy Taco Bell. Sure, we’d rather eat awesomely authentic tacos filled with quality meats, but there’s just something enjoyable about heading into the suburban wilds of Westchester (we live in Manhattan) for errands and hitting the Bell on Central Avenue in Yonkers. That said, Taco Bell has some incredibly bad tacos.
Their standard hard and soft tacos? Yikes. Nasty stuff. No, we go to Taco Bell for our own little guilty pleasures. For Elizabeth, it’s the Meximelt–a simple little melted cheese and meat treat. For me, it’s the chalupa. Oh glorious chalupa! And really, the chalupa stuffins are almost negligible. Ground beef, chicken, steak, whatevs, it’s not gonna be that mind-blowing at Taco Bell. No, the chalupa rules because of the shell. It kind of tastes like deep-fried flat bread–at once chewy, crunchy and soft.
Oh, and big ups to Taco Bell’s special Club chalupa, the “McRib” of faux-Mexican fast food delights (the specialty menu item that only shows up once a year or so and for a very short amount of time). Bacon and chicken and sauces inside the chalupa shell? Nom nom nom nom…
We’ll hopefully be back to normal posting soon. Elizabeth’s been dealing with sickness and the lead-up to New York Comic Con has been hell for me. Tacos!
