Gas Leak uptown


“Heavy odor of gas” reported at 1405 Clinton Street – third floor. Despite having Mission Burrito yesterday – I swear I have nothing to do with it!

Fire Department is on scene now, and they’ve shut off the gas in the building. Sounds like they were just in time to avert a major explosion (like you’d see in the movies or something).

The quality of mexican food in California transcends anything I’ve had on the East Coast, even when made by authentic Mexicans here. I know it’s partially b/c of the fresher ingredients (mmm, fresh CA avocado), but perhaps like the quality of pizza, the water has something to do with it too.

That being said, the rest of your post was gross!

Emarche, stock up on pepto my friend. I too thought that the amount of Guinness in my belly would kill any and all parasites and bacterium, but I was evidently wrong… unfortunately there are not a ton of good dining options (that don’t cost a fortune) in NYC after I am done with work. You would think I of all people would know better, but the allure of tacos was too strong… I should have just had the quesadillas at the Blind Tiger Alehouse.

Bmacqueens, I think that it was just this particular truck, but from everything I’ve heard Mexican food is far better in the Southwest and on the West Coast.

[quote comment=”124608″][quote comment=”124497″]Speaking of garbage: No matter how drunk your are, and I repeat no matter HOW DRUNK YOU ARE, DO NOT EAT from the taco trucks on 6th or 7th Avenue in Greenwich Village or you will be sorry.[/quote]

I read something not too long ago explaining that taco trucks are perfectly normal out in Los Angeles. Are these particular trucks just “no good”?

I also read that genuine tacos al pastor are actually related to what we know as shawarma or (IMNSHO) a proper gyro … Lebanese immigrants to Mexico brought the vertical skewer assembly with them and transplanted the idea. Or at least, that’s what the blog said.[/quote]

My friend (she’s lived in California) has said that the Mexican food is so much better– and probably safer– in Los Angeles than it is here. And although I haven’t had any of it, I believe her.

I’ve spent quite some time visiting family in Mexico– not in the ever-touristy, un-authentic resorts in Cancun and Acapulco but in Monterrey, Guadalajara, other random towns and villages and the big city. And I miss the food– I really do. My cousins and I would often walk a couple of blocks for fresh tostadas with a twist of lime and a sprinkle of salt… or homemade salsa… and, of course, a side of Coke. And the fresh, morning Mexican breads were to die for…

Cheap yet really yummy stuff.
