Mexican food is confusing. It’s hard to know the difference between tacos, fajitas, burritos, enchiladas. Aren’t they all the same? Does it really matter?
We know they all have some sort of tortilla. They are usually spicy. Sometimes really spicy. But honestly, when I order tacos, I’m seriously never quite sure what I’m going to get. Like Forrest Gump’s box of chocolates. Only with tacos, not chocolates.
So when I approached Breddos Tacos at Dinerama (admittedly with a few drinks in), I had no idea what to expect. But I ordered anyways, knowing that the only bad thing that could happen when eating mexican food would happen the next day anyways. And so, I received both a Buttermilk Fried Chicken Taco and a Baja Fish one.
As tiny as they were, these things were great. Expertly cooked fish and chicken, coupled with some mystery sauces (mystery as in there’s no way I could remember the ingredients), both tacos were the quick food jolt I required at that moment in time. Plus, you can finish each in two bites, making you feel like a devouring champion.
Is this what you get in Mexico when you order tacos? Absolutely not. But that’s the point. Leave it to London to take tacos, add weird and certainly non mexican ingredients, and make something even better. Or at least something delicious.
Slimy? They are tacos. Things will get messy wether you want it or not.
Satisfying? Tiny but delicious! A little mexican treat. Arriba arriba!
