Vegan Food Porn (kind of)

Try to look beyond the non-planet-friendly Styrofoam packaging and visualize instead undressing and then tasting the first burrito (that's mine on the left!) I've eaten since those two awful numbers consumed at SFO (didn't notice the cheese until after the first bite) and Dulles (they didn't bother to warm the tortilla) on the way to Paris back in June. These, from Paris' only taqueria, El Nopal, were stuffed with refried black beans, rice, guacamole, nopales, and probably some other things that my taste buds didn't even register because I snarfled everything down too fast. They need to work on their hot sauce, but otherwise, El Nopal get three stars. (And please note how I've resisted the temptation to add "olé!" to the end of this post. Merci.)

  3. YUM. This is awesome. Paul, who loves Mexican, will be excited to read about this! I went to the site you linked in, and a reviewer wrote this: "Enfin, une vraie taqueria à Paris (et à quelques pas de chez moi)! Hallelujah!"

    (In case a person who does not read French comes along and sees this, it says something along the lines of, "Finally, a true taqueria in Paris (and not far from my home). Hallelujah!")

    She took the words right out of my mouth! I'm thinking that if they have totally corn-based tortillas, I might be able to swing this... Since you sorta said it, but with a caveat, I'll go out there and do it 100% for you:

    OLÉ!!! :D
