With draft beer!!

Come to think of it, I wonder how the airport decided that Taco Bell would be the only global franchise allowed within the passenger terminal.

The chicken is breaded thus not actually “naked.”

The Naked Chicken Taco is a product by Taco Bell.  Deep-fried breaded chicken patty, in lieu of a taco shell or tortilla, encasing lettuce, tomato and cheese.  Tastes just like chicken sandwich without buns and condiments.  Totally stupid in concept.  Totally stupid in execution.  Though not as bad as the the Chizza (see 6.348 Chizza).  And yes, I ordered the item just to ridicule it here.

Thank goodness, my kids would rather eat real foods.

  1. Ha. Speaking of idiotic “new” offerings by chains, Subway (in Canada) is now offering “pizza subs,” which are essentially just your standard sandwich but with tomato sauce and cheese smeared on top for some reason.

    And I won’t even try to delve into the disastrous downward spiral of Tim Hortons, once a beloved Canadian symbol, and now some sort of bastardized deviant that’s now mocked at every turn (burgers? Omelettes? Really?).

    1. I’d think that the meatball sub already tastes a bit like a “pizza sub.”

      I had never heard of Tim Hortons until coming to Manila, where it’s quite common. Never been inside. Prepare your heart to skip a beat, as I take this as an indirect invitation to post on Tim Hortons.
