tacogradientThe Unicode Consortium — the international group that sets tech specs so people around the world can use computers in any language — is considering the addition of new “emoji” next year, and one of them may be the computer code to display a taco.

Ever have an awkward moment when you have to pretend to be an Anglo at the taqueria because you don’t speak Spanish? Alfonso “White Boy Mexican” Ochoa reports.

qdoba640(PNS reporting from MASSACHUSETTS) A burrito is not a sandwich, you idiots, according to a court decision announced here last week.

Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Locke made the ruling as he threw out a lawsuit brought by a Panera restaurant seeking to stop White City Shopping Center in Shrewbsury from leasing space to a franchisee of the Qdoba Mexican Grill chain.

Panera’s lease prevents the center from renting space to a (competing) sandwich shop.

From the Associated Press:

[The judge] cited Webster’s Dictionary as well as testimony from a chef and a former high-ranking federal agriculture official in ruling that Qdoba’s burritos and other offerings are not sandwiches. [Mas…]


“Last week we made 90 burritos in about 45 minutes in our Boy Scout tent camp,” video uploader Major Boerns explains:

Mexican / Texmex food is hardly known in Germany at all, so it was a bit of a experiment and therefore I posted this here. The children liked it very much… I know this may be some youtube stuff…but this is for the people who look for some recipes for a huge amount of guests… :-) Any ideas for improvement and of course any insults welcome :-)
