Did The NYT Just Write Taco Porn?

comments

Maybe we're wrong here, but this New York Times article about the city's best tacos is a little, uh, spicy. In fact, if you can forgive us a horrible pun, it's reading to us a little like 50 Shades of Salsa right about now. Even with taco euphemisms and hot sauce aside, food writer Ligaya Michan's taco-rotica has managed to turn long-cooked pork into a sploosh-worthy aphrodisiac. And don't even get us started on the pineapple. So, without further ado, here are the sexiest lines about our favorite Mexican street snack. Keep a napkin handy.

-"What I seek are tacos in their purest primal form."

-"workmen’s tacos, built on two warm, supple corn tortillas"

-"flamboyant longaniza"

-"fit in the palm of your hand, folded around long-cooked meat"

-"beef that has been salted and sun-dried, then sautéed to the point where it fights the jaw for just a moment, then surrenders"

-"When the cook tickles the pork with a knife, the meat peels off and falls into the tortillas he holds below"

-"a throb of salt"

-"A pineapple is speared above, its juices seeping down."

-"inflamed with chile"

-"so tender it made me blush"

-"Piñatas dangle above."
