Mexican Food in Taipei


#161

I never got anything that looks remotely close to this at Taco Bell. How do they manage to fuck up the tacos at EVERY SINGLE STORE???


#162

The taco looks like a non-slip shower mat


#163

Chalupa
not a taco
looks like a taco
but that chalupa shell is the BOMB


#164

Well, if the Formosa Chang dude and Elvira like it, that’s good enough for me, I guess


#165

If we got a Chipotle in Taipei I would set up a little cot somewhere inside the restaurant and just live there.


#166

Chipotle? Really?
I ate once there and it was nothing special at all.
Plenty of cheap family-run burrito places in most big cities of the U.S.


#167

True. But we are not in the United States. There are good burritos in Taiwan - Eddy’s Cantina, El Sabroso - but I would dearly love to have a Mexican place of Chipotle price and quality near my home.

I used to like Taco Bell, but last time I tried it a few years ago … nope. Not anymore.


#168

Correct on lack of burrito places in Taiwan.
As for Taco Bell, their breakfast menu is not bad. Different things you wouldn’t find at other fast-food outlets for breakfast.


#169

Not long ago, there used to be a Chipotle like place behind SOGO Fuxing. Sigh.

Same with the tacos near Tonghua night market. Man, those were good.

Our man Lucca from Xindian is holding Taco Thursdays at Maji. That’s the best we can do for now.

Why didn’t he make it Taco Tuesday?

Taco Tuesday/Freedom Friday


#171

Taco Tuesday is so gringo. In Mexico, every day is taco day. :sunglasses:


#172

There was also that King Burrito place in the Shilin area. It wasn’t great, but it was decent - the sort of place I’d probably eat at all the time if I lived in the area, but wouldn’t travel across town for.


#173

Recommendations for a decent taco place? Nacos with real cheese rather than that awful fake cheese sauce?


#174

Oh, I visited that one too. That Shilin one was really clos eto Chipotle in form. But the ones behind SOGO had tastier fare.


#175

El Sabroso tacos, Tuesdays only, are pretty good.

There’s a taco place in Maji Square that others think highly of, but I thought they were just OK. (Great base filling, but … nothing else.)

Eddy’s Cantina probably makes good tacos, because I’ve liked almost everything I’ve eaten there, but I’m not sure I’ve ever tried the tacos.

See this thread:

EDIT: mods, perhaps for that matter the past 20 posts or so should be moved over to the Mexican Food in Taipei thread!


#176

Taco Bell has given up in East Asia, They had some in Singapore and Japan, seems they have closed. Do not miss them. I do like Guzman y Gomez which now has outlets in Japan and S’pore, as well many in Aussie.


#177

Not an ideal situation, but no biggie. I get my fix on my annual visits to the U.S.


#178

So this thread has become NOTHING to do with ice cream for multiple posts.

Keep up the good work, Badges, you consistently fail to amaze.:ok_hand:


#179

I agree that it should be split up. It drifted a lot from ice cream. Can anyone help sort it out into two threads?

There’s one in Zhongli still. Chipotle-like.
