Making Some Extra Money Teaching in Korea

The company that I work for is one of the biggest English academies in South Korea. They have a variety of different resources and programs to offer to students. One of these avenues is their "online lesson" department, which consists of videos created for students to watch before they attend class. Basically these online videos give them a lesson before a lesson (it's also another way for them to monetize students). Oh, the joys of being a Korean student!

I had previously filmed twenty-four 20 minute lessons for a junior level during the first months of the year. This time around, I was asked to film 8 more lessons for a senior level during my last month of employment. These lessons were fairly easy and they were also another way to make some more money. The only problem was that I had to travel 1.5 hours each way to get to the studio and back! From Mokdong all the way to Yatap--thank god for my iPod (which is now busted) and my Nintendo DS Lite!

Normally, I film early in the morning before work. So that means getting onto the subway by 8:30am, which will get me to Yatap Station by 10am. After filming 3-4 lessons (lunch is included; there is an on site ajumma chef at the headquarters--high rollin, baby!) I am back onto the subway by 1pm, getting me to work by 2:30pm. Then, from here I start my real day of work--teaching for the next six hours!

However, this time around I decided to go film on one of our days off, so I would have the chance to enjoy my evening, rather than battle my way to work on the subway--and work!
So after dragging my tired body out of bed at 7:30am (hey, I got used to this sleeping in thing and working at 2pm) I made my way to Omokgyo Station. From there, I transferred at Yeungdeungpo-gu Office and headed towards Gangnam until I reached Seolleung, to transfer to the Bundang line. From there, it was another 30 minutes to Yatap station. Once I got off, I would take a 5 minute cab ride to the studio headquarters! I felt like I just exited from a time warp after making this journey 1-2 times a week! Check out my subway journey from this picture below. Modified by an advanced piece of Microsoft software, known as Paint:


Every time exiting from Yatap Station in the morning I would see this breakfast toast/sandwich truck. On my last day I would eat here, for only 1500w! It was a complex layout, as you can notice the toilet paper roll near the lady in the pink. There was a change box out front so you could get your own change. Also, holes were cut out in her banner so she could see who was approaching.


She worked very fast and definitely had the skillz to pay da billz, all while sitting in a captain's chair! She would whip up these toasted breakfast sandwiches, consisting of egg, luncheon meat (loved by all Koreans--especially SPAM!), and thinly sliced cabbage:


Here's my sandwich...it was pretty good for 1500w ($1.50) and I could've eaten another one except I was running late. I remembered to take a picture after taking a few bites:


Alright, let's move past breakfast. Here I am at the studio filming a senior level lesson. These lessons are more like lectures, where I recap short stories and write the main points on an erasable white board (or in this case green). This picture was taken by Anyways, one of my good friends that works at the head office. I'm sporting one of those easy to put on Korean zipper ties (I'll post some pictures of those later) and you can't see it from this picture, but my shirt is not tucked in and my shoes are off (I was told that I'm too tall). Like my chicken-scratch writing? Sucks to be the students who have to watch my videos! LOL:


Here's what it takes to film a lesson: one camera man and a director. In this case, it's the notorious Mr. Kim along with Anyways, also known as Joey. I always brought some sort of snacks with me to give to Mr. Kim so he wouldn't doze off while filming. You da man, cool guy!


All in all, filming these online videos were a great source of enjoyment for myself, as well as trying out something new (and making some extra money in the process). Who would've known that I'm a pure natural in front of a camera? If you're teaching in Korea and there are other opportunities for you to make some extra money within your company, I would jump on it and take full advantage!

8 Fun Facts About Gdog

Recently, I was tagged by Stunt Actor and Film Professional, Leo Chiang. The last time I was tagged in one of these "about me" trains was by Ed Lau. So to make things interesting I'm going to add three more facts to my original five. Here we go!

This is how it works.

  • Each player must post these rules first.
  • Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
  • People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
  • At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
  • Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
My 8 fun facts are:

1. I'm half Shih Tzu and half Lasso Apso.
2. Consumption of dairy now makes me flatulate more than ever before (Chinese people are 93% lactose intolerant). Stephen Fung, you have some competition coming your way!
3. I can play 52 pick up with ease.
4. Traveling sometimes is a pain for me because I have too many gadgets, chargers, cables, and other junk for all my electronic gizmos. Next time I'm packing light!
5. I am an owner of a ScottEVest, or now known as SeV. This jacket comes in handy when you're traveling and trying to reduce the weight of your carry on. I was able to stuff at least 5-6 pounds of misc. junk into this jacket. I can even fit my 12" laptop in the back pocket (note to self: this results in shoulder pain).
6. When I'm not rolling around in dead fish down by the beach, I love eating cow stomach.
7. I have worked every job possible in a restaurant. I have worked at my parents' restaurants since the tender age of 5, along with my brother and sister. This is how my bacon addiction started. Child labor rules! ;)
8. I am sponsored by Costco.

There you have it, 8 fun facts about yours truly. Thanks again to Leo Chiang for the tag (impressed with my one month response time, Leo?). Anyways, the following bloggers should consider themselves tagged:

Hoo Kang - He will soon rule South Korea.

Max Watson - Keep those "car photos" coming, brother! ;)

ROK Drop - Your insight to South Korea from a GI's perspective.

Lao Ocean Girl- She's a photography fanatic.

Eva McKinnon - She's the Stranger in Suwon.

Michael the Metropolitician - He risks getting jumped by Koreans to get shoes.

Mike's Blender - Providing us with the latest news from Japan.

Joe McPherson - Let's see what other interesting facts we can extract from the ZenKimchi dude!

Gangnam: More Korean Fashion Pictures

Recently I had a few requests for more pictures of Korean fashion, in particular what people are wearing during the summer. Anyways, one of the best ways to check out what's hot is to take a look at what's selling in stores--in particular those stores located at subway stations. The Gangnam Station Underground Shopping Center has lots of clothes to buy (especially for the ladies) and the prices are cheap (but being Gangnam, expect a higher mark up).

Standing in line at Omokgyo Station, Line 5:


The handles on the subway are pretty nasty if you think about it, but sometimes you run into a psycho subway conductor that either accelerates or slams on the brakes way too hard. So you have to hold on for dear life--or, you can use the people around you as a human body cushion (I've tried it--it works like a charm!):


After reaching Gangnam Station you'll see a lot of shoe stores--all selling high heels. I have never seen so many women wearing heels seven days a week, 365 days a year. Doesn't it hurt to wear heels all the time?! Ladies, fill me in (heels hurt Devante's feet)!


Shoe sizes in Korea are measured in millmeters, not inches. So learn what size your feet are. One inch is approximately 2.54 centimeters. One centimeter equals 10 millimeters. You do the math!


Some shots from random stores...by the way, fluorescent colors are making a come back in Korea, baby (some would say it never went away, but those people are weird)!


Wow, who would have thought Donna Karan would open up shop inside Gangnam Station? Awesome!


The summer dress is super popular. The prices on some of these dresses were over 100,000w ($100USD) which didn't seem right considering the material was paper thin and cheap to the touch:


Random people shopping, or should I say flocking to the racks:




You don't want to be shopping down here for long, because there is no air conditioning. That means you'll be in a full body sweat in about 5-10 minutes, after getting shoved around by random people because it's one of the busiest stations in Seoul. This was the scene at the top of the stairs (on a Saturday afternoon)--even more people!


Here's the Gangnam Station exit map for your reference. See exit number 6? Take that exit if you're craving some of the best Mexican food in Seoul!

Eating the Breakfast Buffet at the Best Western Niagara

Wow, when you're not working and on vacation, it's definitely hard to set aside some time to blog! Anyways, as promised I am going to fulfill my duties (thanks to all of you who voted in my scientific mini-poll) and post the rest of my Korea adventure and more.

So right now we're holed up at the Best Western Niagara. When we saw the setup for a buffet we inquired at the front desk. They told us it was 11,000w ($11USD) per person for the "western breakfast buffet" so we were pretty curious as to what would be offered. Here is a picture of the buffet setup without food (this was taken the night before):


You're probably wondering why they call this hotel the Best Western Niagara. Well, this should answer your question--it's a waterfall type thingy in the main lobby of the hotel, right where the seating is for the restaurant. I really felt like I was at the Niagara Falls believe it or not! Honest, really! ;)


The buffet hours were from 7am-10am. We planned on eating at 8am but that didn't happen, so by the time we got downstairs it was around 9am. In other words, we got the sloppy seconds of the buffet! One dude was complaining to the staff about this problem. In his words "hey guys, there's nothing to eat on the buffet!"

So the buffet was restocked with some eggs and some other items, but it wasn't very busy so I can understand why they wouldn't want to just waste food. Here is my plate consisting of scrambled eggs, toast, fried rice, bacon (super greasy), fries, a croissant, an orange slice, a banana, and...drum roll please...KIMCHI! Wow, I had kimchi for breakfast!


I've had better hotel buffets in my years of working and dining in hotels. But, nonetheless it was better than nothing. Here we have my second plate, consisting of porridge, yogurt, a yogurt drink, seaweed, and a piece of sausage that was seared well but under cooked in the center:


They buffet also had cold cereal, assorted juices, milk, tea, and coffee. It was a decent deal for only 11,000w. For those that have worked years in a hotel like myself, it probably has ruined your dining experiences. You end up critiquing everything as if you're still at work! Anyways, I saw some folded "artichokes" near the buffet that were poorly done. I decided to fold my own "artichoke" out of my napkin just to see if I still had it--and oh boy did I ever!


On a side note, do you remember when I posted about The Simpsons Movie? Well, I saw it last night and it was absolutely hilarious! The audience consisted of everyone in their mid-20s, and it was crazy to hear grown men in front of me giggle like little school girls. If you haven't seen it, and you are a big fan of The Simpsons, I would highly recommend checking it out!

My Last Galbi Dinner in Korea

I'm writing this post lying on the couch using WiFi while at the same time I've been fighing off yawns for the past 30 minutes. My body is telling me to go to sleep because it is 7AM in Seoul, whereas here it's a beautiful summer's day. Devante is taking a nap right now. We have to go pick up my dad from work in about 10 minutes since we've been using his car. Must...not...sleep... must...stay...awake...and... post...about...food...

After checking into the Best Western Niagara, we were both starving. There was a galbi restaurant across the street, so we ended up going there to eat. It was your typical galbi joint: bright fluorescent lights and speedy ajummas running from table to table.

Here are our feet waiting to get served...


The cuts of pork were not pretty good as they were not very fatty. Man, I never realized how much pork I consumed in Korea until I came home!


Of course, you can't forget about the endless side dishes, especially the kimchi. I haven't eaten kimchi in weeks and I feel pretty normal, although my "well being" levels are at an all time low!


Here are some sweet potatoes wrapped in tin foil that were cooked in the coals.


They turned out pretty well and tasted delicious (they were also burning my hands):


After dinner, we went back to our hotel and continued to marvel at how clean and nice it was, while watching Letterman and Leno on TV. Although we were both dead tired, we were determined to wake up early the next morning to try the breakfast buffet! That's coming your way next. In the meantime, I'm off to pick up my dad from work. Note to self: don't fall asleep at the wheel!

How's your summer coming along?

I'm Home: Eating Vietnamese Subs at 4AM

Alrighty so we've made it home now after a 10 hour flight from Incheon to Vancouver, followed up by a 15 minute flight from Vancouver to Victoria! We took the Airport Limosine near Mokdong Station for 7500w ($7.50US) each to Incheon International Airport. We had four huge bags, along with a small bag and backpack. I will explain all about our trip to the airport and our flight in the next few days.

Yesterday when we arrived back in Canada, it was a really weird feeling! We both could not believe that we were back home. It was really nice to take in deep breaths of fresh air! You learn to appreciate the quality of life back home once you've lived abroad. I will make follow up posts about adjusting to life back home after living in Seoul for a year!

Anyways, last night I tried hard to stay awake for as long as possible before falling asleep. I made it to 10pm, but Devante passed out around 8pm. I woke up today at 4am (thanks jet lag) after rolling around in bed for an hour. Hmmm...what do you think I did when I got up today? That's right, I did what what I do best--eat, eat, and eat!

We stopped by Pho Asia in Richmond to pick up a bag full of Vietnamese subs before going home. If you haven't had Vietnamese subs before, they are some of the tastiest sandwiches you'll ever eat. However, there is a downside: they stink pretty bad so I feel sorry for the people on our short 15 minute flight to Victoria who had to side around us--haha!


This maybe one of the weirdest breakfast combinations I've ever had. This sandwich gave me the energy to wake up. There's one more in the fridge that belongs to Devante but I'm tempted to eat it too! I watched a really interesting infomercial on the incredible Little Giant Ladder while eating this sub. Does anyone else want to go halfers on a ladder? It can be yours for only four easy payments of $89.99! Long live infomercials on early morning TV!


Next up, I had a bowl of Island Farms Strawberry Flavored 2% yogurt with cherries, raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries. I really have missed eating berries...oh baby and is my stomach happy to be home!


Thanks for continuing to read my blog everybody. I'm yawning as I'm typing this...once I get back to a regular schedule I will continue to post the rest of my Korea stories (including extracting a free salad from the kid sitting in front of me on the plane) and pictures, along with advice on living and teaching English in Korea. Until next time...I think I'm going back to bed! ZZZzzzz...

Staying at the Best Western Niagara Hotel in Seoul

My hands can barely stop shaking right now. Why? It's because of my internet withdrawal over the past few days! My Gmail inbox was over flowing with emails from family, friends, blog comments, and facebook notifications (ahh, facebook, the ultimate time waster).

Anyways, the last time I posted it was from work. Today is our LAST day of work! It's the last day of the month so not much will be happening. Of course I'll be doing my job, but since it's summer vacation for my students, it might turn into a free for all. Yesterday I had pizza parties for all three of my classes (they deserved it after putting up with Gdog for 7 months!). In the past couple of days, we've closed our bank accounts, went to the pension office to setup our refund, and cancelled our cellphone (hand-pone). I'll make posts about these in the future.

Today, I'm going to rant and rave about the Best Western Niagara Hotel we were put up in last Wednesday and Thursday night. This hotel was located in Omokgyo and it sure was nice. We didn't expect anything fancy since work was paying for it. However, once we arrived we were definitely impressed!

Here is our boss helping us check into our hotel. She took us to the hotel after work on Friday night to make sure everything was right. She's been very helpful throughout our time here in Korea (she's gonna hate me for posting up her picture--SURPRISE!!):


We checked into the hotel without any problems and proceeded up to the tenth floor. Here is a picture our room. To our surprise, we were happy to see a king-sized bed, a clean washroom with a tub, and a nice LCD TV:


I thought the sink was pretty cool, especially coming from a Best Western!


Here's the TV with full cable...but of course, we only watched the Starcraft game channels--NOT!


Two robes were waiting for us in the closet...I don't remember the last time I wore a robe. Anyways, after taking a shower (which actually had water pressure) and jumping into one of these things I was a happy camper:


I thought this was a nice touch. Most of the hotels back home make you pay for bottled water (after strategically placing it on the table within your sight) but here, it was complimentary:


Here's the view from our window. You can see the Anyangcheon, which is part of the Han River:


So there you have it, our hotel for two nights. It was awesome staying in such a nice hotel, as we felt as if we were tourists. The next morning, we had the breakfast buffet which I'll post about later. Right now, it's 1:30pm on Tuesday and we're still rearranging our luggage. Since there are no scales at work, I'm going to roll my huge suitcases down to Hyundai Fitness Gym and use theirs for free! Our flight home leaves early tomorrow evening. My next post will be from my home back in Canada. Talk to you then!

Freaky Movie Advertising in Korea

Here's a quick update for everyone, as I'm now at work and I just finished my last batch of progress reports for three out of five classes. Tonight we're moving into another hotel, which most likely won't be as nice as the room we had at the Best Western Niagara. Just when you thought I'd stop posting, guess again. It's called procrastination, baby!

On Saturday when we were in Gangnam, we saw some girls walking down the street in bright pink colored dresses. No big deal right? Well, that was until I caught a glimpse of their faces! They had fake blood streaming down their faces, while they were handing out pamphlets to promote a new Korean movie, called Siamese Twins (I think that's the title).

Here's the movie poster on the side of a truck that was parked nearby:


At first they were walking around handing out fake tattoos and flyers to people walking by...trying to keep a serious pose:


Eventually they were joined by two others and they parked themselves on a bench. I said a big "HELLO" to them and made them crack...haha!


Apparently this is a horror movie...has anyone seen it? I want to watch Die Hard 4 and Ratatouille. I'll probably see both movies when I get home!

Eating a King Crab with Only 7 Legs in Seoul

Alrighty, I'm back online by blogging at work (temporarily)! We checked into our hotel last night and it was incredible! Since our work was paying for the hotel, we did not expect anything special. However, when we pulled up to the Best Western Niagara hotel, we were very surprised (especially coming from a Best Western)! Our room is a corner suite with a king sized bed, and a huge LCD TV! There was a full shower/tub and free internet. I didn't get a chance to get online because it was late when we arrived. I will post pictures later!

After eating some live baby octopus, we contemplated heading out to eat our "real" dinner. But, we ended up eating king crab instead, thanks to HC (I helped her out a few weeks back on where to buy a digital camera and getting the best deal in Seoul!). Anyways, she came back with a king crab that cost 40,000w--except it only had 7 legs! Hey, I'm not one to complain when I'm eating free crab, baby!

Here's HC (it stands for hardcore if you're wondering) posing for a picture with the crab. What's up with her and always kissing things (think of five time bodybuilding champion, Mr. Seoul)? ;)



Once the entire crab comes out steaming hot, the ajuma takes over and starts cutting up the crab with scissors. This is a skill that takes years of experience and has been passed down from tens and tens of generations ago. Watch and learn:


Here's a picture of our king crab. It was pretty darn good, but that missing leg would've helped because I was still hungry afterwards! You guys should know that I love to eat myself silly:


Nothing beats eating crab and drinking "Co-Cah, Cohrl-Rah" in a bottle!


When you ride with Gdog & Co., you always get some sort of "service" (or ser-bees in Konglish). We got a plate of watermelon, which was warm (it was probably kept outside in this hot weather). HC got an extra piece from the ajuma, so of course I had to get in on that too! Flash a quick smile and beg like crazy...that's how you get things for free in Korea!


So that pretty much wraps up our trip to the Noryangjin Fish Market. I have lots of things to post about soon, once I get back up and running. I won't have internet since we will be moving into another hotel on Friday night. I have some cool videos coming your way of people watching in Gangnam (all dressed to the nines), and ordering Red Mango at the busy Gangnam location.

Eating Live Baby Octopus in Korea!

Side note: we will be moving into our hotel first thing tomorrow morning, so that means this will be the last post from our officetel. I will try to keep posting at work if I can get the wireless internet to work properly. In the words of Arnold: I'll be back!

Alright everyone, this could the post you've been waiting for. If you remember wayyyy back, I posted about eating live octopus. I also promised Katie from the TEFLlogue (check out my interview with her) for an exclusive of my culinary adventure. Well, on Sunday night HC, her friend Blake (visiting from the USA), Devante, and myself headed to Noryangjin Fish Market in Seoul to find the freshest available octopus.

Eating live octopus, or sannakji in South Korea is seen as a novelty and health dish (whatever happened to eating fruit and vegetables?!). The live baby octopus is cut up and immediately served, usually with some sesame oil. The problem is the tentacles are still squirming and fighting--which equates to a party in your mouth as your chew them to death inside your mouth!

We took a cab from Noryanjin station on Line 1 to the Fish Market. Here, this market was jam packed full of seafood vendors--they were quite aggressive I might add:


Some of this stuff is not your average seafood from back home. However there was a lot of shrimp, clams, abalone, weird eel thingies, and some other random items:


Here's the video of us buying the baby octopus. A couple friendly Koreans who spoke English helped us buy two for 10,000w ($10USD)--what a smoking "deal"! Watch how the one tentacle is stuck to the tank:


There was a restaurant right at the fish market that will cook any seafood you bring to them. Part of this includes the side dishes and such. Anyways, here's a picture of the octopus after it was cut up and brought to us--the picture does not do any justice to how much these things were squiggling around!


After getting their tentacles freshly chopped off, I think these things get into a rage as revenge! Watch them wiggling around like mad...this slowed down after a while, but they were still very, very active:


With a little bit of samjang and sesame oil, it wasn't that bad...however there wasn't really a taste, as it was just darn chewy!


Alrighty, enough of the small chit chat...here is yours truly digging into his first piece of live baby octopus--this is for Katie from the TEFLlogue!! I called it squid, but either way this is still pretty nuts:


So after eating that first piece, I can tell you that it tasted like the jellyfish appetizer that is served in Chinese restaurants. However, this time around it was about 1 billion times more chewy. It is imperative that you chew the tentacles properly, because if you don't they can stick to your throat as you swallow---and that would not be fun!

Here's another attempt but this time I wanted to show you how it is such a weird feeling having the tentacles grab grip to my tongue--oh, and don't mind the sesame oil/drool that comes out of my mouth, it's all for show. ;)


We didn't expect them to give us back the remaining nakji, but this time it was COOKED! Devante didn't dare to try it (she said she likes to eat her food dead) out--she did an excellent job filming us though!


Now, if only next time I would be brave enough to stuff an ENTIRE octopus at once like THESE GUYS!!


So, you're probably asking me if I'd eat nakji again, right? My answer is probably no, because there wasn't much taste and it was just too chewy. It was pretty fun trying it out before we departed from Korea though. After the nakji, HC went out and bought us a king crab for dinner. I'll post that the next time around.

Have you eaten sannakji before? How was your experience compared to mine? Who would want to give this a try?!

Mexican Food in Korea: Dos Tacos in Gangnam

What did you do on Saturday? Did you eat Mexican food by any chance? Well, regardless of what your answers are to these questions, on Saturday we experienced some of the finest Mexican cuisine in Seoul. We met up with a friend in Gangnam (Kangnam) for lunch at Dos Tacos. What you are going to read might shock you (or not), so be prepared.

Anyways, the last time we tried Mexican food in Korea it wasn't very good. Taco Amigo in Itaewon was much better, but still it did not rock my socks off. So this time around one of our friends has lived in Gangnam for the past few years led us to a spot that was tucked away, called Dos Tacos. We went there for lunch and had a nice seat on the patio. There was actually blue sky in Seoul! Yahoo! Let's take a look at lunch, shall we?

Dos Tacos is not a large restaurant--there are two patio tables outside and seating for 25-30 people inside. They also do take out:


You have to try the lemonade here--it was sparkling and very refreshing. Also, all drinks include free self-serve refills, Costco style:


Dos Tacos was pretty packed on this Saturday but our food came relatively quick. Here is my Chili Burrito (9000w; $9USD). It was jam packed full of beef, cheese, black olives, tomatoes, onions, lettuce, avocado, CILANTRO (which is hard to come by here), baked beans, and rice (I might have forgotten something--oh oh sour cream!). Devante ordered the Meat and Avocado Burrito--I didn't take a picture of her burrito because I was so excited over mine. These burritos were extremely tasty and satisfying, even better than the Mexican we get served at home!


Here is the inside of Dos Tacos...there is bar seating and tables as well. This picture was taken about seven hours later...why you ask?


...because the food was so good, we went back for dinner! Okay, before you call us crazy...please understand that I am not a foodaholic or anything (okay, maybe just a little). We had to do some shopping in Gangnam, we also visited our friend's apartment nearby, and were expecting to meet another friend in Gangnam later in the evening. The trek to Gangnam from Mokdong takes about 45 minutes by subway, so our rationale was we might as well enjoy this while we can! You can never have too much of a good thing they say--so that translates to eat lunch and dinner at the same restaurant!

Here is the Chili Bean & Beef nacho platter (6500w; $6.50USD)--I don't think I need to explain anything here, as the picture says it all!


What was for dinner? How about two hard shell tacos (1 chicken, 1 beef; 3300w/$3USD each!) stuffed to the max? These things were so good and reasonably priced too. I can see why Dos Tacos is always so busy.


Here is the Dos Tacos menu in a higher resolution so you can check it out yourself. Their menu is kept fairly small (along with their seating room), but don't take this as a bad sign. This ensures that your meal is prepared fresh and consistent, time after time!


Just where the heck is Dos Tacos? Well, take exit 6 from Gangnam Station and keep on walking straight until you see a Tous Les Jours bakery. Turn left down the alley and Dos Tacos is located at the end. There is also another location in Apgujeong too. Man, if only we found out about this place sooner. I would highly recommend this place if you are craving Mexican food in Seoul! We had an exciting day in Gangam, so expect more posts in the next week, along with some fun videos.

Where else have you eaten Mexican in Seoul? I have heard of Casa Loca, but have never eaten there. Any hardcore Dos Tacos fans out there? What's your favorite Mexican dish?
