Don’t Bully Nazis, Please! This Community Advice brought to you by the Scarfolk Council.


Whether you’re visiting a Rub Smokehouse in Birmingham, Nottingham (say hi to the sheriff!), Beverley, or Newcastle (got coals?), this epic dish proves that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.


Stuck in London without a rebozo? Salsa-less in Soho? Caught without a calaca? Stop by the Mestizo Mexican Marketnext door to Mestizo Restaurant & Tequila Bar on Hampstead Road in Kings Cross — for all your arte, comida, y ropas requirements.


Looks pretty good, actually. A legit chicken teriyaki recipe, authentic pico de gallo/salsa made with grilled piña, and of course everything tastes better on a tortilla. We have three questions, though:

  1. Where did the rice come from?
  2. How can it be a “healthier” with a lettuce wrap instead of a tortilla? Corn tortillas are GLUTEN FREE, ENGLISH DUDE. Also, no tortilla, no taco.
  3. Wassup with the Christmas music soundtrack on a video uploaded March 27?


Kingston University (UK) Product and Furniture Design students Milo and Hannah conducted a controlled experiment to see if a motorized remote-controlled Dia de los Muertos sugar skull that also blows bubbles could drum up more business for a local burrito stand, Mighty Burrito & Co. You won’t believe what happened next! (Día De Las Burbujas = Day of the Bubbles.)

On the island city of Portsmouth, in Hampshire, on the southern coast of England, some hard-to-understand blokes are bent on world domination. Will their Al’Burrito restaurant be the vanguard of a Mexican food revolution in the United Kingdom?

It’s hard to find decent Mexican food in London, but critic Richard Vines found three taquerias worth visiting in a report for Bloomberg TV. We were puzzled that the Limeys spell Oaxaca “Wahaca” but then we remembered that Brits are stupid with “foreign” terms — they pronounce “filet” like “fill-it,” for example. Food critic Vines […]

by JEFE BOYARDEE May 15, 2014 Cultura

Nachos are exotic foreign fare in Merrye Olde Inglaterra, so you need someone to explain how they work. We think “trash food” is British for “junk food,” but these people also call cookies “biscuits” so who knows what they mean. Anyhow, our Limey expert’s first step to acceptable nacho eating is the purchase of Doritos. […]

Where are you from? That is a simple question, isn’t? Well, for some of us, the answer is not so straight forward. My experience in London in the past four months has included fascinating dialogue with people I have come across. It is one thing I have come to expect from such a global city […]
