Every prince knows that the most effective way to wake up a sleeping beauty is not with a boring kiss, but with a single potent drop of fiery green chili. Awaken tired taste buds in royal fashion with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get a taco combo for two at Chronic Tacos location on West 4th Avenue (a $16.16 value). The taco combo includes:
• Two tacos
• Two chips and salsas
• Two large soft drinks
Salsa slingers at Chronic Tacos pepper preservative-free tortillas with meats marinated in-house everyday, flanked by a slew of fresh fixings. Derived from third-generation family recipes, the heartily named fatty taco furnishes its confines with a variety of meats, veggies, and homemade guacamole, flavoured from the happy tears of lovably anthropomorphic cacti. All tacos are stuffed with a choice of authentic carne asada, pollo asada, carnitas, al pastor, fish, shrimp, or veggies. Additionally, dining companions can hand deliver salsa-loaded tortilla chips into each other's mouths, then refresh palates with a large soft drink.
Chronic Tacos, whose tacos and burritos were voted some of the best in Vancouver in 2011 by readers of Georgia Straight, culls its recipes from the salsa-splattered pages of a family recipe book filled with three generations of Mexican delicacies. Chefs marinate and grill juicy morsels of steak, chicken, and pork several times a day, then tenderly tuck them into preservative-free corn and flour tortillas. To add extra zest, dollops of house-made salsa and sour cream perch atop tacos and, in the event of an emergency, rain from sprinkler systems.
