He was aghast when all 3 of us said they weren't that good.
The drive through Tijuana was interesting though.

I'm going back to So Cal in August for first time since then (aside from layover at LAX on way to Maui on my honeymoon), so any good taco recommendations (will be staying in OC, hitting Disney, SD Zoo and possibly Universal) are welcome.

At least it'll get the thread off of mass transit talk and on to taco talk.
LOL. The best tacos I've ever had were from sketchy shack in Ensenada.

I like Guisados in Boyle Heights.

Oh wow. Had no idea you live there! I was there for work. Probably will be traveling there frequently this year. Ate at Pappasitos. Probably nothing special but better than what we have in Wisconsin!

Probably not even in the top 100.

If I have learnt anything from this thread lately, it's that I definitely shouldn't look for jobs in the US. As somebody who can't drive, one of the reasons why I live in Melbourne is because it has easily the best public transport in Australasia, and probably the Southern Hemisphere. Melburnians complain about it all the time, but if you live in the inner or middle suburbs you simply don't need to own a car - and it's often quicker to take the tram or train, or to walk.

Reading about transport in the US makes it sound like an absolute nightmare, as someone who's well accustomed to taking the train (and the occasional bus) much of the time.

Oh that's fine, complaining about public transport seems to be somewhat of a national sport in Australia - judging by you guys, the US as well.

Just when I thought this whole rigmarole couldn't get any more convoluted or confusing: Ted Cruz sweeps Colorado amid Trump camp's disarray | US news | The Guardian

PS Sorry for bringing the thread back on topic.
