otacosIs this the worst online taqueria video of 2016? Spoiler: No tacos were filmed in the making of this O’tacos video. P.S.: It’s from France.

It looks like O’tacos offers a “Philly” taco (suspiciously burrito-looking) which includes provolone cheese and grilled onions. How do they say “cheesesteak” in France? [Mas…]

Home fries, red onions, cream sauce and Pont-L’Evêque cheese are the stars of this one-minute recipe video for “tacos” from Elle&Vire, a diary conglomerate in France’s Normandy region. But this begs the critical tortilla-based question: Corn or wheat? Also note that they call tortillas “galettes fajitas,” which translates as fajita pancakes. Unclear on the concept, […]
