World-renowned Mexican small plates offshoot of El Bulli Taco Bell is finally implementing a menu tactic its competitors (Boqueria, Thomas Keller’s Ad Hoc in Yountville, and the last few remaining California Pizza Kitchens) adopted a long time ago.
A Dollar Menu. One dollar, one item. A one-to-one transaction, wherein you get an item after handing over a dollar. How many more explanations do you need? You know the one McDonald’s has? Exactly like that, but with Mexican food.
They are calling it …
Dollar Craving Menu. Shall we break it down? Oh, yea, we fucking shall.
Please note, I have read nothing about these items and am analyzing them solely by looking at their pictures.
Frito Fucking Rice Wrap: Are those flecks of cilantro on that rice? Wow. High. Class.
A Quesadilla: Hey, now. Let’s not leave our comfort zone.
Goo Tubes!: Have you ever had Go-Gurt and been like, man, I wish this yogurt was cheese and this plastic was tortilla. Me too. Me too.
Slopfest Sans Fritos: Why would you ever order this? Let me get the one without meat and Fritos. You know, the bitch one.
OMG OMG OMGS: These are good.
Quesadilla 2: Return of the Quesadilla
Warm potato taco: This actually may have a basis in real tapas.
Flat Disc O’ Food: How do you eat this?
BBQ Sauce Nachos: But it’s fusion! Fusion cuisine is hip.
Empanada: Guys, we aren’t reaching the Argentinians. We need something to reach the Argentinians.
Cinnamon Twists: That was easy.
You can read all about it for reals here. It looks pretty good
