(The New Yorker)   The French Taco is definitely not the same thing as what your mom dabbled in during her post collegiate summer trip to Paris   (newyorker.com) divider line

First two sentences of TFA: "French tacos are tacos like chicken fingers are fingers. Which is to say, they are not tacos at all."

Well, if that old story about the lemon-diaphragms and puckered French faces are anything to go by... then Yes.

Throw out your hands, stick out your tush
Hands on your hips, give them a push
You'll be surprised you're eating a French Ta-co
Voilà!

I just know that the French have to unhinge their jaw to show love.

I was thinking the same thing.

Ha! Stupid French, can't even get something as simple as a taco right

"a flour tortilla, slathered with condiments, piled with meat (usually halal) and other things (usually French fries), doused in cheese sauce, folded into a rectangular packet, and then toasted on a grill."

1) Sounds like top-notch drunk food and 2) I would like to try one

Sounds like a stuffed dosa to me (kinda like south Indian crepes).  I would eat the shiat out of these things.

I kinda want to spell it "taquos."  Just so people will quit biatching about it being "tacos"

Yes.  They have a chain called "Indiana Cafe" that is kind of like a Chili's but with more Mexican food.

They also have a chain called Buffalo Grill which is like a steakhouse, but with burgers and Tex Mex.

When I heard French Taco, the thing that came to mind (aside from subby's inuendo) was a Monte Cristo but made with folded crepes and something like Panko breadcrumbs, but instead, crumbled toasted filo dough. I'll work on it.

Oh that's gotta piss off the traditionalists.

It sounds like a Taco Bell Crunchwrap Supreme but with weird sh*t in it.
