ot When did Tacos Surpass Burritos? Empty ot When did Tacos Surpass Burritos?

Post by steveschneider on Wed 24 Jun - 10:43

For a good chunk of my life I always went for the burrito and a taco was more or less a 'snack' in between meals. Seemed like burrito shops just dominated back in the day and if it was your shop it was a point of pride to boast about the size of your burritos.

How the times have changed. Now a days when I go for Mexican food it's generally tacos. I love them and I think they are a global treasure. Also, my perception of burritos has completely changed. I don't crave them anymore. Was it the trucks? Or did some marketing genius come up with a way to make the taco #1? I don't know what it is but these days my go to Mexican dish is tacos.

When? I don’t know. But why? Variety.

3 small tacos, change up the fillings is way better than 1 big fat burrito.

I think you are onto something here. Also the meat usually comes out better for the tacos than the burritos. A little more char? I don't know but they are so good.

Kroger has some hamburger mixed with porkburger for sale. The meat guy says it is really good on tacos. I prefer shredded beef myself so I didn't buy any.

Tacos have always been the dominant Mexican food (Americanized).

I think you're just referring to the hipster trends toward Mexican food that has changed like any other trends.

Pancheros man, Pancheros.

I almost got in a fight in Pancheros. I was waiting in line for my burrito, I looked around and me and this guy made eye contact and he goes 'what are you looking at?'. I was like I don't know man I'm just bored waiting for them to make my burrito and I looked around and we just saw each other. After that it was like note to self when in line for burrito just keep looking straight ahead.

I guess if we're talking authentic comida latina then it's tacos for sure. Seeing as I'm stuck in the US for the foreseeable future, you won't catch me having tacos when I can have a big ass burrito instead

Interesting call out, I find El Ezteco's tacos disgusting. I prefer their fribur to the taco. I always heard wild rumors that Art put a little cocaine in his beans so maybe that explains why.

Probably right. I think the people sticking by the burrito haven't had a really good taco yet. People you gotta get the ones on the little disc shaped tortillas. That shit will blow your mind.

I never specified Ocean Spray, weirdo. Furthermore, I would argue that, of your three examples, only the Mountain Dew/whiskey combo is really objectionable.

Fuck me, where to start? Firstly, tacos are the cheeseburger of Mexican cuisine. The premise of your thread and post assumes there was ever a time tacos trailed burritos in fame, and that's just ridiculous. Lastly, "disc shaped tortillas," really? Do they come in any other fucking shape? What the fuck are you on about?

Considering you’ve admitted to snacking on tacos between burrito bookends, it would appear the operative word is chunk.

Those are no longer tortillas at that point, they're just shells. Formerly flat, disc shaped tortillas, but no longer tortillas, so I think Cam's point stands.

I think he might be onto something. If they made three smaller burritos and you could choose different meat fillings for each tiny burrito this might help the burrito overtake the taco.

Why does it have to be meat, Steve? Why do you insist on murder as a solution to your burrito problem?

From nearby Oaxaca.  Delicious.  My only gripe is they tend to over salt a bit.
