  • Thank you for not grasping the concept

    I went to Taco Villa (similar to Taco Hell/ Taco no Bueno, except better and uses real food.) I always get their grilled chicken salad without the shell. I open up the box when I got it back to the office to liberally apply salsa and pico de gallo as dressing to find that someone missed the concept. Not only had they put it in a shell,they had put shell shards in the salad. WTF?!

      Said employee would likely enjoy it. Besides, for all I know, my English "No taco shell" translated into a West Texas Spanish "more shell, please." I must study this linguistic anomaly further.

        i had that problem in africa. "no cheese" meant "extra cheese" and "no meat" meant "fish" and "no fish" meant "chicken" and so on. LOL

          Yeah, I have a favorite local place where I treat myself to a taco sald once in awhile. They always look at me kind of funny when I ask them to hold the shell. And then I have to watch them like a hawk so they don't automatically put a huge scoop of rice on it and then the shell shreds on the top! Also, their dressing is some kind of sweet chipotle stuff, so I also have them hold the dressing and give me extra salsa to use instead.

            Hahahaha...two days ago I ordered a Caesar salad with grilled shrimp, hold the croutons. The thing they gave me must have been 50% croutons!

            So, I think this linguistic anomaly may not be limited to West Texas Spanish...

              Usually, aside from an odd look, they're pretty good abt following directions and keeping it right. Come to think of it, I've had this issue before, in Kentucky. I asked for "Texas Chili." I got tomato soup with a couple lumps of ground beast drowning in it. Granted I did order it in KY, from a Waffle House, at 3 in the morning.... What? Why are you staring at me like that? I was 10, I didn't know any better.

                Learn to speak Kitchen Spanish it will serve you well especially if you live in the Southwestern US. It will help greatly with ordering food as well as other stuff that you wouldn't expect until you use it. You will get treated better (shocking isn't it?) by those that have limited English speaking abilities.

                  Honey, I grew up where the barrio meets the ghetto. I speak Spanish fairly well. Not fluently, but well enough to get mi punta a travez en la cocina.

                    obviously not well enough to get your order done properly?

                      The young lady manning the register repeated my order back to me correctly. It was likely a mix-up in the kitchen. I'm not laying blame on anyone but myself for not checking my order before I left. Just thought it funny and a bit irritating.

                        lucky for me, mexican in nz sucks. so does pizza. so you're really put off a few american favs.

                        the only good stuff is the traditional english, various south east asian, and kiwi cuisine.

                            like tx style, real americana bbq? absolute crap. too much sugar. in fact, even hot sauces are sweet here (blech).

                            so, yeah. anything on a grill (BBQed) is nice, but mostly you are just getting grilled meat or seafood and/or veggies, and that's decent. brats are ok -- if you get the gluten free ones (might still have rice flour and stuff, so we source ours carefully).

                            eating out in NZ is expensive, and the food is rarely as satisfying as what you can get at home. so, we hardly dine out.

                              I heard OZ is really expensive to eat out as well? Why is that?
