What’s for lunch by the way? Let’s get Mexican! [Video by JING.]

Is this the worst taqueria video of 2016? Spoiler: It’s from France

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?

Hola! Aloha! Why so much Mexican food in small town Hawaii? (video)


Today we remember Rudy Martinez, a Mexican-American from San Diego who became the first Latino casualty of the Second World War when the Japanese sunk his ship, the U.S.S. Utah, in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii 75 years ago today, December 7, 1941.

Martinez’ story inspired us to search for “Mexican” AND “Hawaii” and we found this video from Kapa’a High School on the (Garden) island of Kauai. The kids wanted to know why their small town of 10,000 — a community with just one Starbucks — was lucky enough to have nine Mexican restaurants.

Can a Day of the Dead skull blowing bubbles sell more burritos? (video)


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.)

Japanese students in San Diego try a ‘sushirrito’ (video)


When Japanese students at the Q International School in San Diego tried an unlikely All-American Mashup, a “sushirrito,” they were surprised.

At first, they noted, the colors weren’t right, there was no mustard and it lacked ketchup and hamburger. On the other hand, nom nom nom!

We weren’t surprised. In SD, burritos have explored new culinary and multicultural frontiers — they come with French fries:

Watch: German Boy Scouts make mass quantities of ‘burritos’


“Last week we made 90 burritos in about 45 minutes in our Boy Scout tent camp,” video uploader Major Boerns explains:

Mexican / Texmex food is hardly known in Germany at all, so it was a bit of a experiment and therefore I posted this here. The children liked it very much… I know this may be some youtube stuff…but this is for the people who look for some recipes for a huge amount of guests… 🙂 Any ideas for improvement and of course any insults welcome 🙂

How does your state rate in the Mexican restaurant wars?

It’s no secret that Americans love Mexican food — Gustavo ¡Ask A Mexican! Arellano’s book Taco USA celebrated that aspect of the Reconquista last year.

But not all of the United Estates is created equal, and in some areas of the country there is a shocking Mexican restaurant shortage!

ABC/Univision reports:

There are more Mexican restaurants than Italian bistros, Chinese kitchens, chicken rotisseries, or seafood shacks in the US. We’re talking about no less than 38,000 Mexican restaurants dispersed all across the American landscape (as of 2011).
