Taco Time

If you asked a ten year old me what my favorite food was I would have immediately replied Tacos. I still hold firm with this answer, however my idea of a taco has changed immensely over the years. Being Canadian, and raised anywhere but Mexico, I am not an authentic authority. The affair began with a love of Old El Paso seasoning and ground beef but has developed along with the popularity of Mexican street food here in NYC. My friends from LA will probably think I have no right to talk about tacos…. Blah, blah, blah. I just want to share my obsession with you! Please join me in my quest to understand the taco! I have in no way been to every taco place in NY so please share with me what I am missing out on. I will be making June my own personal taco month… you can expect haiku’s and photos and weight gain. Do you think I can do 30 days of tacos???
