Chlie Shrimp Tacos
at On the Border
Emergency Sick Leave, Day 8 (see previously 7.019 Kalguksu).
In Seoul. Arrived two weeks ago on a mission. Injured my back last weekend (see generally 7.011 Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza). Staying in town for treatment. Aiming to return to Manila this Saturday.
The food was okay. About as good, and authentic, as any mainstream Mexi-Cali/Tex-Mex family restaurant chain in the States. The tacos, for example, had flour tortillas, not corn. But overall not too bad.
If not to accommodate the conservative expectations of old folks (like my father) whose idea of Mexican cuisine is still embodied by Taco Bell, I’d rather eat at a simple real-deal taco joint (see for example 6.351 …Octopus Tacos) or a newfangled KOR-MEX fusion restaurant (see for example 3.181 Kimchi Carnitas Fries).
