Big New Blog Category & Link
your friendly local Hawai'ian god has a new category for links, "Southwest." It's over on the right-hand side -- and sorry about Joan bleeding into the RH margin over there. She's just so over the top all the time. I'm sorry she's not fronting the Democrats instead of her marginally-reserved twin sister. It'd be a lot more fun to follow. "Hey Murth! Murth! You're making me throw up!"
This first link under the new category is a critical find. The Great Taco Hunt is a world-class site that is the ideal of what a blog should be (unlike the fish-wrap you're reading now). It presents localized, unique information from a first-person perspective on a limited topic that is obsessively-covered. And it's a great read, too. The site's creator, Bandini, ought to be slaving away on a book by now.
Have a look and a link -- you won't be sorry. And you'll be surprised about how different the tacos are in California as compared to other parts of the US, including the Southwest. And they have it right over there. Unless your friendly local god was dipping once too often into the washed-up bottle of shochu he recently found, that style taco comes from the interior of Mexico. Other border states' tacos come from a Northern Mexico style, and are beef/chicken-friendly, salsa-poor and Yanqui-influenced (see Wikipedia entries for "lettuce," "tomato" and "processed cheddar cheese."
