Four things you need to know about your beloved taco
Let’s get one thing out of the way. Tacos are delicious.
While that is salivatingly so, there is more to a taco than just its great taste. Here are some interesting fun-facts that you should know about this iconic Mexican dish. Just be aware that you might get a little hungry…
- Tacos are old, like really, really old.
While there is debate over when exactly the first taco was created, most experts agree that the first taco was invented somewhere between 1,000 and 500 B.C. Back in those days, the tortilla was used as an edible spoon to scoop up all the tasty ingredients.
- There is a right time to eat tacos.
Despite the fact that most of us will eat tacos for lunch or dinner—or any time of day—Mexican people feel differently about when tacos should be eaten.
According to Mexican tradition, seafood tacos are meant to be eaten at lunch, while antojitos are meant to be eaten at dinner.
- There is a specific day to celebrate tacos.
As important as routinely eating tacos every week is, we aren’t talking about Taco Tuesday here. (Hey, that’s today!) There are actually designated celebratory days that promote the consumption of tacos each year.
In Canada and the United States, the national day to celebrate tacos is October 4. In Mexico, Dia del Taco (Day of the Taco) is celebrated on March 31.
Be sure to add these important taco loving dates to your calendar each year. There’s no reason why you can’t celebrate both!
- Taco means “light lunch”
The word taco can be roughly translated into the popular meaning of “light lunch”. Seems a little odd considering that tacos are hard to resist, but we aren’t ones to judge.
Our fabulous fish tacos will certainly satisfy all your lunch cravings! We also serve them for dinner, along with our grilled prawn tacos.
Both of these popular items can be found on our infamous gluten-free menu as well.
We love tacos so we serve them seven days a week!
