Been a long time since I looked at the Rolodex of Love, but I think a French Taco is something else altogether, guys

God will curse me for this, but DAMN that looks good.

Yeah, that's where I went too.  Was that wrong?

It's basically a French garbage plate in a wrap.  Meh, no thanks.  Certain items of food just shouldn't be comingling with the other food, fries don't belong anywhere as an ingredient to anything else unless it's the main ingredient in a fries supreme or something.

But that's just me.  You do you.

Ceci n'est pas un taco.

But it's French! Why do you theenk it has thees outrageous accent?

Oh, yeah, I went to Paris last year with my friend and we passed by an O'Tacos (on our way to some fancy gelato place) and my friend says "those aren't tacos."

We had a derisive laugh over the pictures of the "tacos" on the window.

/yes, I know, cool story, sis.
//I had a ton of fun "collecting" pictures of Invader artwork.
 
2019-03-15 12:38:23 PM  
You could just rub it on yourself and smell French, too.
 
2019-03-15 01:20:53 PM  
What does the "O'" in O'Tacos suppose to designate? That they serve Irish-Mexican fusion cuisine?

Wait until the French discover ranch dressing. Just imagine these babies soaked with it.

If that is done in America, you know that would be made of the lowest-quality ingredients and would be dripping with grease.

Done in France, where the bar for ingredients is set higher, I can see that actually being tasty and not as terrible for you.

My brain/stomach are conflicted.

For when you want to eat each part of two different happy meals at the same time.

Europeans are constantly drunk. Thus this.

This is the "Gigataco," that is free if you can eat the entire thing in one sitting:

2.5 kilograms and the size of a cafeteria tray, full of meat, cheese, potatoes, and sauce

We're all living in America. It's wunderbar.

Lol.

French cuisine is an exercise in how much butter can be added to a dish before it supersaturates.

Hell no.  I'd tap out before I was half done.  That's a farking meal for 4.

Six?  That would feed eight at a minimum.

How is that a taco? I would eat it, sure, but that is not a taco.
 
2019-03-15 05:24:15 PM  
If someone tried to pass that off as a taco here in Tucson, the place would be destroyed by an angry mob.

My acid reflux is acting up just looking at it.

That looks like a French person's idea of what an American eats for lunch. We're being trolled.

Fries crammed into a shwarma/kebab-type wrap is perfectly cromulent.  I had a pork+fries one in Russia last year (yeah, *pork* in a kebab style is epic.  I will be experimenting when grilling time really gets rolling).

Adding a cheese based sauce seems like a natural next step.

Also, a San Diego style "California burrito" absolutely requires fries alongside the carne asada.

For 4? More than a pound of crap per person? At least 6 people.

College me would give it a go, and maybe have a chance. College me was dumb.

Fries go into a California burrito.
