Taco or Fajita?

Post by UKRuss » Tue Mar 10, 2009 4:22 pm

I mean, I respect the crunch of a freshly warmed taco but at the same time the control the fajita brings to the party sets a new moral standard.

I have discovered that if you fill the taco and leave for some time particularly after adding the soured cream, one can warp the taco into a semi taco/fajita hybrid which is appealing...but then what is it? Where is it? and who am I?

why not just have a soft taco?

fajita's are just upper class soft tacos.

This is not a question to be taken lightly.

Like you, I respect the crunch - but I can't stand when a crispy taco shell breaks on me.

Also mexican restaurants here tend to give you a huge pile of guacamole salad with fajita dinners...

Honestly for me, burritos > both

Indeed it is a difficult conundrum!

The burrito is a tasty snack for sure as it the soft taco...but i feel something missing in both: Where do I balance my Jalepeno slices?

And you are right! You spend all that time building the perfect taco, one bite and it disintegrates all over your face in a soured cream and guacamole-cum-salsa face melt mask!

I still think it's worth it for the first crunch though...

Taco wins! :D

Guacamole, salsa and cum? Man, you've got to start going to another resturant.

Corn chip-based tacos are not Mexican, they are Texican.

Those crispy taco things are so bourgeois. Soft corn tortillas are the way it is done. If you want hard-core, satisfying crispy-crunchiness with a tasty, chewy core, then go for the flautas!

:D you poor pitiful peeps, nothing beats a northern California burrito. In particular from the mission district in SF, but they all rock..... Never a worry about cum in your food, although an occasional "lets spice whitey" (with hot peppers), but nothing that you can't handle.

This is the first time an internet forum thread has ever made me hungry. I'm going to get a huge steak burrito with black beans, rice and guac.

I really prefer the carnitas, especially the outside part that gets all crispy and caramelized from roasting the hogfat! Wrap that baby up in a fresh flour tortilla with some good fire-roasted New Mexico chile salsa, guac, and sour cream... I could die happy then!

Burritos offer a solution.

There is always the tostada, if you are looking for a flat place to balance things, but it can be prone to the inopportune fracture as well.

Another approach: the flauta, where you *dip the flauta into* the various guac, sour cream, salsa, etc.
