Living here

Of course we are already familiar with America but still taking the big step is not that easy. It’s not as easily as it looks. From operating the truck and getting one of the many permits can become a large head ache. Also to show that you have the right and good products is sometimes annoying. Especially as a foreigner. And then you have to take care of your own life, private life. Doing a lot of research before even entering this country. Finding one of the many insurances, the eternal search for a getting a trustworthy international health insurance you feel comfortable with. Luckily I had my brothers, so together we did a lot of online research which saves a lot of time.

Also the social life was great when you already have your brothers with you and you speak the language. The culture is still something we have to work on. We are used to just dropping by and meeting your neighbours while here it feels a bit more reserved.

Taco Bell

Pondering on the Taco, it is very cool to see that this beautiful product turned out to be great item for a large Fast Food franchise: Taco Bell.

 

Everyone is making jokes that you shouldn’t eat it for a big date, but that of course are myths made to have something to talk about or to make fun about.

 

Taco Bell actually is considered one of the largest fast food chains in the United States. With McDonalds leading, followed by Subway (Yeah weird right).

 

The food is considered pretty good, easy to make and in all honesty I love the colors of the Franchise Restaurant. Just look at that cute little dog man!

Taco?

The funny thing is to see how our culture is taken over by the Western people and using it for something completely different.

 

For example the Taco. Which normally should be flatbread with our magical ingredients in it, but ever since the Americans wanted to eat it, they changed the name and made the mistake by calling it for something else.

 

They use hard used shells and put their the minced beef and called it a taco. Nevertheless, all versions of the taco’s are the best food. Period.

The Tortilla Maker

We love seeing our culture take many shapes into the new world. We are still young and the future is here. Always my mother had to get up early to make the tortilla breads for breakfast.

Imagine all those hours in the kitchen now taken away with only one press of a button. We were amazed when we found the guys of the machine on a large convention and tried the different styles.

We truly believe this machine is revolutionary. We might end up having one in our food truck, you never know!
