When it comes to food, the term "authentic" simply means "how I like it."

Greenbeanx: When has taco bell had quality ingredients?

Taco Bell's ingredients lack quality? How so?

I got confused, was this supposed to be an interview or a rimjob?

Oh and...

"So, what a great opportunity! If I can bring a great menu, great quality to the ingredients, and create great recipes for them, why not? If I can give my message to so many for an affordable price, because if somebody can do it, it's Taco Bell. The power they have to buy the ingredients, imagine what we can do, and it's exactly what happened. It took two years of going back and forth, of developing recipes for them to make it. For them, I really wanted to simplify the produce and make it accessible for them to do it and at least it started, at one point, this is how the Cantina Bell menu with me, it started."

Translation: Taco Bell offered me dumptrucks of cash to come up with a bunch of shiatty recipes that sound healthy but are really about as nutritious as sticking your head into a vat of lard. Now I can make the ludicrous claim that I'm helping feed low income families while spending my mountains of cash. Thanks Taco Bell!

That new guy they've got can really cook. And the chicken's not bad either.

Dialectic: Since she is Venezuela, she could introduce arepas here is the US of A!

GRCooper: The only reason Taco Bell exists is so that people who left their wallets at home can eat using the change in their car ash-tray.

I haven't owned a car that had an ashtray in over 10 years. What's my excuse?

I just have to laugh at Taco Bell hate here on Fark. If you don't like it, don't farking go there, but do you have to waste your time looking like a food snob ass?

Your Average Witty Fark User is an attention whore. That's what this all boils down to.

Lorelle: Taco Hell's fare isn't Mexican nor food.

You speak the truth. I might only offer "Taco Smell" as an alternative, but I think I like yours better.

We called it 'Toxic Hell'.

Still ate there, though.

She must have been a VERY shiatty lawyer.

Finally, I can get authentic Mexican squirts instead of fake gringo squirts.

The Slush: Cymbal: Taco Bell is FARKING good sometimes, you morons just need to smoke more weed. Mexican Pizza and 1/2 lb cheesy bean and rice burrito FTW.

Let me get this straight. I need to... smoke weed... so I can achieve appreciation of sh*tty fast food.


Well, yeah. That's when shiatty food tastes best, after a smoke. Why would you want to waste money on expensive fast food just to satiate the munchies? I find you seriously lacking in critical thinking.

Not a big fan of arepas. Had one at a place called 'Flacos' in Maracaibo and was sick for a week...

Every time I think I want taco bell, i buy some and immediately flush it down the toilet or throw it in the bushes

This way, the middle man is cut out and I can go about my day without feeling like hell

Looks like what they are doing is adding cilantro to everything. I hate cilantro.

Taco Bell is good cheap eats. If your stomach can't handle it you're a wuss.

CujoQuarrel: Taco Bell is good cheap eats. If your stomach can't handle it you're a wuss.

This. What's all this business about it wrecking people's GI tracts, causing explosive diarrhea, etc...?
You're a goddamn omnivore. Humans evolved to eat just about anything.

I know good Mexican, I've had good Mexican, and I can afford it too. But I realize that there's nothing shameful or toxic about enjoying a Grilled Stuft Burrito once in a blue moon. Get over it, folks. You're not an awesome human being simply for looking down your nose at something.

Let's see this 'chef' top the Dorito Loco Taco.
2012-07-16 12:21:50 PM  

poot_rootbeer: I have a feeling Chef Garcia's presentation of the new menu she "designed" went something like this: "Well basically, I just copied Chipotle's menu. Then, I added some fins to lower wind resistance. And this racing stripe here I feel is pretty sharp."

Knowing what I've heard from friends in the UK about "menu designed by chef ...", the chefs are basically shown a menu and expected to sign it.

Every time you eat at Taco Bell, a food snob douchebag dies a little inside.

That's why I eat there at least once a week.

fark you, food snob douchebag. fark you.

I've never met someone in real life who had big issues with taco bell who ate a health diet outside of the place. They consumed pretty much zero fiber and no fruits or veggies the rest of the time. Which is hillarious, because they cite the bowel issues as evidence that taco bell is of horrible quality, but its their intestines and stomach that are so unused to fiber that a couple of beans destroy them.
