Taking a break from Pizza today, two of the editors from Foodenator decided to check out Qdoba located in Harvard Square. While one of us was too busy smiling at all the complements she received on her Mohawk…I ordered three chicken tacos.
I opted for two crunchy tacos and 1 soft taco. The taco was filled with marinated chicken, pico de gallo, white cheddar cheese and lettuce. I also threw a little hot sauce on the top. First of all, the flavors were great together. It’s a hot day and overall it felt like a healthy light meal. However, the soft taco shell was a little “slimy” so we would suggest sticking with the hard shell if that suits your taste buds. We like the efficiency of the assembly line at the store, its very “subway-esque” and helps the line to continually move.
Definitely an Americanized version of Mexican food but great for something that is fast and on the healthier side.
While no clinical trials or scientific data yet exists, anecdotal evidence supports the theory that as little as one Sonoran Hot Dog can cause earlobe cancers to go into immediate and complete remission. Foodenator sent a team of Food Scientists down to Arizona to put the theory to the test. The team descended on El Quero Canelo at 5201 S. 12th Ave in Tucson, Arizona at 6:46pm. Two of the researchers ordered Sonoran Hot Dogs, while the control group ordered items off the non-weiner menu.
Subject 1 (Group A): One Sonoran Style Hot Dog, uno Coca Cola hecho en mexico, and an order of Flan with Flan Juice to wash it down.
Subject 2 (Group A): Sammy Dog and Horchata
Subject 3 (Group B): Pollo Tacos
Subject 4 (Group B): Carne Asada Carmelos, Flan with Flan Nectar, and Jarritos.
Food results: Sonoran Hot Dogs are delicious!
Therapeutic results: After dining, no incidence of earlobe cancer was found in Group A. Group B did not develop any earlobe cancer related conditions, so we can safely conclude that there is no Second-Hand Sonoran Style cancer risks. What did we prove? That science is delicious!

Memorial Day weekend has past and with it comes the official start of summer, beaches and bbq’s. How many times have you dreaded making the traditional pasta salad or ranch dip? Who can say they honestly feel comfortable eating food that has been sitting out in the sun for 3 hours? Next time you are asked to bring food along to a picnic, try making corn salsa.
Here is what you will need:
4-6 Roma tomatoes
1 container of tomato basil feta cheese
1 can of corn
4-5 green onions
1 tbs Olive Oil
Crushed Red Pepper
First, drain the can of corn and empty it into a bowl along with the feta cheese. Next, dice the tomatoes and toss them in as well. Dice the white part of the green onion and add it to the bowl with 1 tbs of garlic and 1 tbs of olive oil. Finally, add about a tablespoon of the crushed red pepper then salt & pepper to taste. Mix the ingredients together and chill until you are ready to serve.
Today is the special day/holiday Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for fifth of May). Foodenator.com would like to tell you ‘Happy Cinco de Mayo’ on behalf of the Foodenator.com staff and Foodenator.com fan club.
Please enjoy an Enchilada today
There is no question about this, $2 Taco Tuesday at 647 Tremont, in Boston, is solid. They offer 4 different tacos for 2 bucks each, we ate all of them. Fish taco, carnitas, chicken, and this chilli bean combo. It wasn’t unanimous that the chicken taco was the best but it was. The carnitas followed by the fish and in last place the chilli bean combo. Chilli bean was liked by all but myself.
647 offered a weak menu of margaritas, featuring only 4. The margaritas were decent, no better no worse. After having my way with each, its easy to recommend the mango margarita.
