I used to eat taco bell once and a while to remind myself why I don't eat taco bell. It has been about ten years and know
enough not to. Isn't there a Moe's or a Chipotle near you? Think outside of the whatever the hell it is that taco bell serves.
Seriously, you are a smart guy, you should know better.
If you want traditional Mexican tacos they don't come with any of the toppings tex-mex has on it.
From my off by one posting of this into the networking board, because I'm an idiot:
The problem with cal-mex, and fast food in general is, it becomse really hard to warrent eating it when you find where you can get semi-decent hand cooked food for just as cheap or less. Taco bell has this problem moreso, just because mexican food is generally rather inexpensive.
Just to fake add value to reposting it in the right place, I'll add this. I can get a quesadilla a local place for 5.50 bucks that is much much larger then anything tacobell offers, contains real meat and cheese that tastes good, their claim to fame homemade tortillas, and leaves me full afterwords. To get equally as full at taco bell, ordering entirely the cheapest items availible, I'm still paying about 4.00, and that's for something that is velveta, rice, and uh... their ground beef... The premium is nothing, if I were to order "premium items" at taco bell, which still aren't really good, I'd be paying more there.
Taco Bell pretends is food. That is why I couldn't understand why
Generator Man would eat Taco Bell.
Look, on the ground, it's powering the refrigerator, it is powering the
AC unit, it's Generator Maaaaaannnnnnnn!
Generator Man eh? A new megaman game come out while I wasn't looking?
A friend of mine is kind of a mexican (well, his parents are, but he has a german name and only looks a bit un-aryan ;) and he put the cheese on top. I do this as well most of the time now, too.
Also, we do not have Taco Bell or any other mex franchise around here, only some mexican restaurants. Last time I ate there, I was rather disappointed with every single dish they served. No spicy enough, not tasty enough, etc. Another friend's dad lived part of his life in Mexico and his guacamole recipe is far superior to the stuff they serve in the restaurants. I also prefer my own versions of quesadilas, etc.

It took me like 3 or 4 orders of what I order at my favorite place for the person who works there to stop telling me the food was going to be spicy.
Here's my general rule for guessing quality of foriegn resteraunts. If there is a somewhat sizable population of -insert race here- find one that many of them go to. If there isn't one, nothing is really all that good. If there isn't many of -insert race here- beyond the proprietor, you'll probably just have to eat there. As for Mexican, I tend to prefer taco-stand style establishments to resteraunt style establishments. They remind me more of my experiences in mexico.
This topic will make me eat Mexican today, hurah!
I eat from Taco Bell occasionally, but about the only thing I get
Wait, were you people talking about Taco Bell the restaurant chain?
I thought you were referring to Taco Bell, the Mexican phone company.
Or perhaps it was Taco Bell, Tinkerbell's hispanic friend?
Original turk/greek or not, doesn't matter to me. Probably every single village around the Balkan can claim to have invented serving grilled cut down meat and a bread with sauce and salad.
"Dönerbuden" (shops where they sell Kebap) are far more common here than the greek variety. Greeks more often have bigger restaurants. The Pita is most of the time made with pork and they do use the cheap stuff and grill it till it dies the second time. So if I eat a Kebap with meat on rare occassions, I prefer lamb. Most of the time I chose feta. I'd rather drink the soup on the bottom of a trashcan than eating industrially produced chicken.
Also, most souvlakis I have eaten were made with lamb. That's one reason you go to the greek restaurants here. If you want pork, you can find about every sane variety in a default german restaurant. And I detest all of them.
Also to be noted is that it isYea Ber-Mex doesn't have that same ring as Tex-Mex
difficult to find good Mexican food in Germany, or so I am told by by
cousin who spent a year studying there.
been pork. I enjoy lamb, pork not as much.
Although I like year-ohs I read something once that said it was the worst of whatever meat they used and I stayed away from it.
So, no Hitler-prepared seven layer burritos on the horizon.
But, it's safe to let him in your car because otherwise, you might have an existential nightmare, and he can cook blutwurst.
That anything like grilled blutbot?

yes, you can find it, but you have to search for it.
its simply that turkish food with doener is easily found everywhere, cheap, fast (-er than capitalM), and good.
