Taco Count Update: 962

As the total taco count passed 950 over the weekend, it occurred to me that, perhaps, the final climb should be documented by mikesnotes. After all, a thousand tacos (and 0 heart attacks) is not just an every day occurrence.

I double-checked the math and figure that in the 8 months up through yesterday, the total taco count stood at 956. Lunch today was another 6:

  • 4 tacos from the taco de canasta vendor at ITAM, sold from the back of a bicycle. Carried in a basket (or canasta), these pre-made, tortilla-wrapped grease delivery vehicles rock because they’re tiny and cheap (3.50 per), yet taste awesome. The ones I got were filled with mashed potatoes. Add to that some grilled onions that are hidden below (you have to know to ask!) and this might be what they’d serve at a Mexican-Polish restaurant.
  • 2 tacos from Jovitacos, the ITAM institution. There’s something to be said for thinly-sliced grilled steak and onions, wrapped in a shell of crispy grilled cheese, with spectacular salsas. I’m still looking for new tacos to try, but the odds look good that these will be some of the best tacos I’ve had. We’ll have to wait to find out.

So the count now stands at 962.
