      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

taco bell

Recommended Posts

Anyone besides me a fast food junkie? I was thinking of eating better with the thought that it will help my overall performance in the hills, does it help?

Give up taco bell are you mad! Actually I prefer the deep fried taco time concept. I guess you can get the same from the chalupa but I figure I'm willing to pay more for quality fat kid snacks.

Go vegan, but reward yourself with something greasy everytime you red point or on-sight something hard, or get to the top without dying. That way you have the psychological back pat and the secondary gain of calories to go to your chewed up muscles.

imho taco time is better than taco bell (unless you're totally broke), but get some "real" mexican food - like fish tacos from taco del mar. yellaf.gif you can even get 'em in squamish now! thumbs_up.gif

There's really not any good Mexican restaurants in the PNW. frown.gif

 

huh? Avoid the Aztecas and try some of the smaller taquerias (sp?). If you are the only non-Mexican in the joint, you are in the right place.

 

Don't forget to try some Horchada. bigdrink.gif

They are here; you just have to look harder for them.

 

What always cracks me up is when PNW chain taco joints (Taco Del Mar for example) think their hot sauce is hot. Every time I get a fish taco at Taco Del Mar with hot sauce, the guy tries to warn me how hot is supposable is. I always ask him "hot for oregonians or hot for authentic mexican food?"

yellaf.gif try getting spicy hot food up here in bc. hellno3d.gif seems like they think their hot wings are "hot" just because they're cooked and have some kind of red sauce on them. rolleyes.gif

 

and there really is fairly good mexican food in the seattle area. thumb.gif

(definitely better than anything i could find in the southwest corner of colorado! cry.gif)

that little taco trailer on the way to/from index f'ing rocks! lick.gif

A buddy from Mexico City tells me that everytime that he comes to the states that he loves going to his favorite American food resturant, Taco Bell, because you can't get anything like it in Mexico.

Well, folks, let's start seeing some names and addresses.

 

The closest place to me is Agua Verde at UW. Not bad.

hey tlg why are you looking for hot mexi food in squamish/whistler you are only going to find it in east-van. yuppies cannot stomach heat. it makes their suv riding queasy as their flaming rings are mashed into the leather seats.

 

if you want hot food in BC think szechuan or curry. wave.gif

Szechuan or curry is a different kind of hot than mexican food. Dru! No distractions… you’re going to get me cravin’ burritos and thai for lunch… good think tel has wireless in the bathrooms... from my favorite Fish t-shirt: "Eat hot death!"

 

You know its authentic Mexican when you're buzzin' from the 3 beers you had to drink just to get the burrito down. I lived with 2 dudes from burque a few years back; whenever they cooked enchiladas I would polish a stout sixer just to get through dinner while they could slide by on some high life. It all comes down to were you grew up.

El Burrito Loco #3

3126 Ne 82d

PORTLAND, OR 97220 - 5226

(503) 252-1343

 

Super dank burritos and chile rellenos! Just eat there after hitting rocky; eating one of their burritos is the equivalent of leading with a big wall rack on. They have an old school street fighter 2 video game machine inside: good times!

not that gordito's (in greenwood) is *that* great, but if you like HUGE burritos and have never been, give it a visit. i think one burrito lasted me four meals! it's also not a full-service restaurant so you don't need your platinum card to eat there. thumbs_up.gif

Tacos Guaymas has a few locations in Seattle. The best Mexican chain restaurant anywhere. Yumyumyum.

Great stuff, but I always seem to get distracted and come close to scraping my car on the sharp left in the drive-thru...

Yup,

I've been afforded the opportunity to live 20min from the border for a few years now and also to have travelled far and wide. Mexican food only exists in the southwest.
