Pinche Taco Shop

Haha, well that gave me a good chuckle earlier today. This is a small local chain selling authentic Mexican tacos (as opposed to the American variety with is a crunchy little thing with roughly three pounds of cheese per serving). 




Pinche – According to the RAE pinche means kitchen help in Spain. In Mexican slang however it’s an all purpose swear word, working very much like the -ing version of the popular F word, though as typical in Mexico it’s not nearly as offensive. 

One day I will walk in there and order ‘un pinche taco‘.
