The Unholy Alliance of Tacos and Spaghetti

Categories: WTF?
Regular readers know that few foods bring me more joy than tacos. While I love authentic taqueria tacos the best, I'm no stickler for tradition. I love the Americanized hard-shell version with ground beef and shredded cheese. (Seriously -- I made these last night!) And I'm dying to try Kogi, the Korean-Mexican-fusion taco truck in Los Angeles that is the standard bearer for the food truck revolution.

Still, a story in today's New York Times gave me pause. It seems that kids are obsessed with hard-shell tacos filled with spaghetti.

Spaghetti? Really?

Parents: Do your kids ask for this? Have you tried it yourself? Or is this a case of a fake-trend piece? Let me know in the comments.

I'm thinking Gut Check might have to whip up a batch for an official tasting. In the meantime, enjoy this clip from The Simpsons, which this story brought to mind:
