On occasion I travel to Tijuana, Mexico just to go eat for the day. love going down there during the summertime to enjoy some cold drinks and nosh with friends and family. The last time I was there I treated myself to all the amazing street food Tijuana has to offer.
I remember this one vendor in particular that caught my inner grizzly bear. I was walking along and suddenly I could smell a delicious aroma. I rose my head and nose into the air as I tried to see what and where this stunning essence was coming from. I sniffed and followed the scent passed a bunch of food vendors; I walked at least 1 block! Finally I arrived at this food cart where the man in charge was frying something. I couldn't tell what it was at first because it was swimming under a grease pool. Then the man started pulling pieces of chicken out. He gently put the different pieces of chicken on soft corn tortillas and passed them out to the next customer to put the topping on: he was selling fried chicken tacos! I quickly got in line and waited impatiently for it to be my turn!
I've been making fried chicken tacos ever since that last visit to Tijuana. You have to try them to appreciate what I'm talking about.
