I really wanted to like you. The first time I saw your colorful sign, only blocks from my apartment, I thought “That’s going to be my favorite taco place in L.A!” But that changed when I got up to the front of the line and asked for two bean tacos. The menu makes it clear you have beans available, and I’ve never had a Mexican place refuse to make a bean taco before, but sure enough, that’s what happened.
Today, I was walking by and I was hungry, so I figured I’d give you one more chance. Maybe last time the guy was just having a bad day, or feeling anti-vegetarian. Again, I asked for two bean tacos. And again, I was told that I couldn’t order that. I should’ve just given up, but instead I ordered “two meat tacos, but hold the meat, and give me a side order of beans,” and I made my own bean tacos at the picnic table out front.
I just don’t get what the problem is — aren’t beans cheaper than meat? Shouldn’t you be happy you can save the meat for someone else? I think in the future if I want to make my own tacos I’ll just do it at home.
By the way, I was almost tempted to write a post about how you make the best bean tacos on the planet, just to encourage other people to order them and piss you off, but I’m a friendly vegetarian and I don’t do stuff like that.
