Lately there has been a HUGE influx of Mexican restaurants popping up all over Ottawa (just downtown there is a Chipotle, El Camino’s, Zak’s Cantina, Ace Mercado’s, Ahora, Burrito Burracho, to name a few). Not only this, but most restaurants now have Taco Tuesday’s and they aren’t even restaurants you would think sells tacos. You can buy clothes and merchandise with tacos all over it and I often seen many meme’s of tacos all over my Facebook feed. So, what’s the deal with Tacos?
They Are Delicious
Obviously. I am sure most people reading this post, if not all, have tried a taco at least once in their life (and if you haven’t you’re missing out!). You can literally put anything into a soft or hard taco shell and it will taste amazing.
They Are Easy To Eat
A little messy, yes, but easy to eat. They are usually a pretty decent size which makes it easy to bite into and enjoy. I personally prefer soft shell tacos because they are easy to eat and usually less messy than hard shell.
So Much Variety
Sure, there’s the typical beef, salsa, lettuce and sour cream tacos (which are great!) but you can have pulled pork tacos, fish tacos, chicken tacos, shrimp tacos, honestly anything tacos. I have had fish tacos at an incredible number of different restaurants and they all taste different. Typically they will make them with a battered and fried fish, some sort of mayo-and-something-else sauce, lettuce and avocados, but I have had so many (and delicious) variations of these.
I don’t reckon I’ve ever had an expensive taco, however one probably exists out there. I can usually find them anywhere from $2.00CAD – $5.00CAD per taco or three for $13.00CAD – $15.00CAD which often comes with a side dish. I find this pretty reasonable given all the food that comes inside one of those things.
Tacos are probably one of my favourite foods. I really enjoy fish or shrimp tacos and usually this is my go-to meal when we go out for dinner. Do you feel the same way about tacos? Do you think they may be slightly over-hyped? Drop us a comment below, we would love to taco-bout it!
