  1. Caught a couple errors at the end: Mexican food differentiates completely from Spanish food and Taquerias are inherently Mexican; honestly, they’re not even close. Also, it’s spelled “taqueria” not “tacqueria” (no “c”). Other than that, nice post! enjoyed the cast with Ngoc!

    Random observation: why is it that non-Latin people love La Vic’s so much? I mean sure it’s decent but nothing amazing or even unique… haha, it gets annoying when all my Asian and white friends bug me to go there or *cringe* Chipotle… PS NEVER EVER order La Vic’s “Super” Quesadilla. Super my butt.

    I can barely spellcheck in English, let alone in Spanish! Thanks for the feedback Gabriel!
