My dad and Scott have talked about doing a "taco trek" through our town for a number of years now. This is San Diego after all, Mexico is just around the corner, and we have Mexican restaurants on almost every corner! In our town alone we have approximately 10 taco shops within two miles. So the idea of walking to all of them and trying one taco at each was born a few years back and finally put into action on Saturday.
You can always count on Pacific Coast Highway to deliver some interesting sights.
Out of about a dozen taco stands, (thankfully) only six were open. I managed to eat a total of two tacos during the trek, which has made it so I still want one when I look at these pictures now (I can't say the same for my dad and Scott). This one was a bean taco with fresh lettuce, two kinds of cheese, tomatoes and a crunchy shell.
The best was the first taco we tried, but I'm not sure if that had more to do with our empty stomachs or the actual taco. We decided crunchy shells were best and actually tasted lighter than the soft tacos doubled up with two tortillas. The walking made the eating easier (and healthier) and now we can say with a bit of authority which restaurant has the best tacos in town.
Now what's next? A beer at every bar? We have a lot of those too.
