That’s why we weren’t surprised when we read reports of a marvelous new American “taco” creation, the grilled-cheese taco.
Although we think the so-called Elite Daily’s headline asserting that “You’ll Never Need a Tortilla Again” betrays the bleak gustatory horizons of an editor who has never eaten a proper tortilla (see videos below), we are thankful she included a link to the original recipe.
Originator FoodInMyBeard blog (original recipes and mashups by Dan Whalen) lays out the rationale:
Katsuji Tanabe, of MexiKosher, MR POCHO’s favorite Japanese-Mexican-American West Los Angeles kosher chef, is now serving hamburguesas made from a special blend of three cuts of beef. With beef bacon. And soy “cheese.” West Los represent!
PREVIOUSLY ON HAMBURGUESAS:
The signature foods of Chanukah, which begins tonight, are potato latkes — as prepared by Hebrew homeboys Jaquann and Luis — and sufganiyot, Israeli-style donuts. Both foods, tu sabes, are fried in oil, commemorating the milagro at the heart of the Chanukah story.
Which is why, two years ago, before we thought of Mexican Turducken-style gag dishes we could attribute to Rick Bayless, Mexikosher chef (and Chopped winner) Katsuji Tanabe created a nopales and kosher carnitas burrito stuffed inside a donut/sufganiyot. Really.
