Fast Food Corner
I recently saw a commercial for a new Taco Bell item called the Tortada ... the commercial, like most Taco Bell commercials, is annoying ... a guy is walking down the street with a Tortada, and another guy asks him, "Hey, what's that sandwich you're eating?" The man with the Tordata ignores him, and finally says, "It's not a sandwich, it's a Tordata." Stupid, stupid, stupid.
Thankfully, the "sandwich" itself is pretty good. Here's how the Taco Bell website explains it: A warm flour tortilla loaded with fire-grilled marinated all-white meat chicken, crisp shredded lettuce, fiesta salsa, flavorful salsa roja, and a blend of three cheeses – cheddar, pepper jack, and mozzarella, all grilled together hot and toasty.
I tried it the other night at a KFC/Taco Bell restaurant. I went in to try the Double Down, but unfortunately (and quite perplexingly) the cashier explained that they didn't have any chicken filets (That's like going to Burger King and them telling you they are out of Whoppers ... and yes, this has happened to me). So, tried the Tordata instead ... folks, it's really good - the right mix of salsa and chicken, wrapped up in a tasty tortilla.
