El Taco Loco Shop

Here’s part 2 of El Taco Loco Shop delivered by OrangeCrate, featuring their carne asada quesadilla!

I dearly adore carne asada quesadillas so I thought I’d add one to my last Orange Crate order. This one has to be the most monstrous I’ve ever seen! It should be clear to anyone that El Taco Loco Shop does NOT skimp on the carne. Nice touch that they included a small side of chips in the box!

Now, while it may be true that you can never have too much carne asada (or bacon for that matter), certain dishes react poorly to too much of one thing or another. This was the case with my quesadilla. A good CAQ needs to have the perfect ratio of meat and cheese. This one had meat spilling out just picking it up. Further, there was very little discernible cheese. The right amount of both will allow the melted cheese to act as a cohesive agent to contain the meat. In fact, the best CAQs I’ve had in my day usually result in a small stream of grease running down my hands and wrists. That’s when you know there’s ample cheese!

Despite being a challenge to eat, it did taste really good! They included guac, crema, pico, etc. inside which is not common in traditional taco shop CAQs.

Again, the delivery by MyOrangeCrate was spot on and this CAQ held up perfectly under transport.
