“Jefe, what is a plethora?”
“Why, El Guapo?”
“Well, you told me I have a plethora. And I just would like to know if you know what a plethora is. I would not like to think that a person would tell someone he has a plethora, and then find out that that person has *no idea* what it means to have a plethora.”
Lines from the now infamous Three Amigos. Well sort of, except they were talkin’ about Pinatas. And we’re talkin’ bout tacos. This is just what Tacolandia is.

Last year you could find anything from classic carne asada, delicious pork abodo or pibil, succulent fish and shrimp tacos, including vegetarian flavor bombs like porcini mushroom with black truffle tacos. Heck you could even snack on grasshopper tacos last year. This year’s line-up proves to be just as promising as last year.
