deep fried tacos
the Kansas taco thread got me to thinking about something I miss dearly. I grew up with nice fat tacos from a place called La Cocina in KCK that was run by a Santa Fe employee and his wife. they would put clothespins on the tacos to hold them closed, and dip them in the deep fryer for a few seconds. Sheer heaven, although I probably got a lifetime's worth of grease courtesy of those tacos. There were a few other drive in joints on the east side of KC that offered such a feast, but alas I'm in Oregon now. The tacos at Jack In The Box seem like they follow this concept, but even though they're good,
being corporate they aren't stuffed to overfilled. Does this treat exist anywhere else or was it a unique experience of my growing up?
