Isn’t TMT just a parody of Pitchfork? J.k, it’s also my daily read.
I’m on a roll here people! I just finally started reviewing on Yelp, and wowsers, I cannot stop. Reviewing all my favorite joints?! omg too fun. :)
It’s the boy’s roommate’s favorite taco shop and he has been RAVING about this place all the time and he mentioned that we should all go here together! and damn was I not disappointed! It’s in Solana beach, and located next to commercial buildings from what I remember! It has a Mexican market next to it too lol.
He said the Al Pastor (pork butt) tacos were the one that we should get for sure. So we did and it was http://bomb.com :) We decided to try a couple more tacos and got the Pollo (chicken), Cabeza (pork cheek) and Lengua (tongue)! All of them were soooooo good and flavorful, but I have to say the Al Pastor and Cabeza were tied in first place. I like how the Al Pastor was so tender and juicy, the sauce that it was marinated was too yummy. drool. The Cabeza tacos on the other hand was tender too, but it also had the right amount of spice on it (I’m a total sucker for spicy food). We also shared the carne asada fries (obligated to try those everytime I hit a Mexican joint lol), and again, it was good. Fair amount of guac( this is important) and fresh sour cream. and lots of cheese too.
P.S. You should drown all of em in the bottled salsa that they have at the counter. I was seriously gonna take it home, or drink it when no one was looking. so freaking bright and spicy. noms.
But yeah, thanks Ken for taking us here!!! :)
We Must Become Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves tops my list.
I like you
You got my vote
They are the best band in the world, but that doesn’t mean you get to be on lists.
You know what I think is so neat about that record? That I’ve only really listened to it seriously like three times, but it was serious. I mean SERIOUS, and all of those samples are now a part of me or something. The first listening really took me to the sublime and now all I want to do is get back there.
Where can I see it?
This is so true and I wonder if other publications are going agree. It seems like the TOP album of the year should also be the most innovative and relative to our situation. Just being a cohesive record that sound’s good shouldn’t be enough to make Bon Iver so deserving of all these accolades.
