This weekend, one of my favorite taquerias, El Fogoncito, announced it opened its first restaurant in China, which will be followed by the gradual openning of 25 more, making it the first real taqueria in the country. Quoted by The Associated Press on Friday, Sergio Rosas, operating manager for El Fogoncito, said the company was investing US$1 million to have five restaurants in Beijing by next year, in time for the 2008 Olympics.
By the way, besides working on its expansion, El Fogoncito might want to hire a gringo to proofread its English-language site, which greets visitors with a warm “Wellcome”.
Language matters aside, it’s great to know that finally, the Chinese will know what a good taco is all about. Buen Provecho
