TACO CHALLENGE @ El Loco. (ROUND 2)
$20 Bucks. 20 Minutes. How many can you eat?
This is the 2nd ever El Loco taco challenge and it drew a raucous crowd keen for a good night of taco consumption. Contestants paid, $20, were registered and given a bib where a fancy “contestant name” is scribbled on with a fluro marker. Not surprising; I registered as the Jugernauts although she wrote “judernauts”. My team of 5 consisted of Mexican Sunshine, De Leon, El Soph, and Lady Solicitor. The tally at the end of the session for my party was 10, 8, 6, 3 and 3. I ate that 10 tacos but spent the 1st 4 minutes laughing. So yeah. Could probably have still eaten more. Ate til the very last second where I devoured my 10th.
It was a very fun night out with a fete like quality. The hostess and crew were all outstanding during the taco challenge; ensuring that you always had food to eat; and goading you to eat more. Good natured food challenge.

gotta love the taco suit.
emcee for the night making her rounds.
El Loco felt slightly more festive than usual. Packed to … the rafters. Gotta love the pinatas. and the newly added hanging red+green banners.
kitchen service more or less shuts down during the taco challenge.
de Leon is keen to start.
Haberno Sauce, Lettuce, Soft Taco, Chicken with what tasted like light soy sauce. Quite yummy actually. The sauce had a bit of kick. It was so spicy that El Soph (Sophie) and Lady Solictor (A) bailed out at 3.
Near the 20 minute mark. De Leon @ 8 tacos. Mexican Sunshine @ 6. And yes, they’re both from Mexico originally. :) I think the look says it all.
El Pane… Guy has the air of someone who could eat. And… he won the evening with 15. Congrats!! FAMOUS!!
Assume there’ll be a round 3, I’ve heard that Mrs “De Leon” is keen to join after seeing the photos. I don’t think we’ll be seeing El Soph + Lady S.
