¿Is Taco Bell Really that Swell?

Hi Y’all! Some of you maIMG_4389y know from my welcome post that my first taco was from Taco Bell and I loved it. I didn’t know what I was missing out on for so long. For several months after discovering my love for Taco Bell, I ate there a lot. It was my favorite fast food restaurant to go to. Time went on and I started eating less and less Taco Bell and I realized recently I haven’t had it in a really long time. So, for dinner one day this week I went to taco bell and got my normal order: two crunchy tacos with just cheese and two Cinnabon delights. That’s when I came to the sad realization that I am not really a big fFullSizeRenderan of Taco Bell anymore. I ate my two half filled tacos and my overly sweet Cinnabon’s and I was disappointed. The food wasn’t bad, it tasted like normal Taco Bell, but it also didn’t taste great. I’ve tried so much amazing Mexican food over the past few years and I think that the standards for my tacos are a little higher now. But, if you’re still really craving some cheap and fast Mexican food, Taco Bell will do in a pinch.

¡Welcome!

45691-o4wexyHey Y’all! Being from South Louisiana the Mexican culture has always been around, although it has been altered and mixed in with the unique Cajun culture that defines much of Louisiana. So, the Mexican culture has been around me, but honestly I never paid much attention to it. I’ve always been a picky eater and I still am today, but my love for Mexican food bloomed one day at a very unlikely place… Taco Bell.

Taco Bell is probably the most Americanized Mexican food available to anyone and everyone, but this is where I had my first taco at 18 years old and fell in love. My best friend (who is Mexican) convinced me to try something new and I am so glad she did. Now having a few years of experience under my belt I would have to say I am a bit of a Mexican food junkie. My favorite thing to do it try a new Mexican restaurant every time I go out to eat. Through this blog I plan on taking you with me through Louisiana’s Mexican restaurants, food trucks and anything else we happen to stumble upon.
