Aziz Ansari ~ My Favorite Taco

10:31 AM PDT on April 23, 2009

You know Aziz Ansari from such television programs as Parks and Recreation (Thursdays on NBC), and Human Giant. There's some absolutely hilarious Human Giant stuff on YouTube, go there if you enjoy laughter. Aziz is also a noted taco hound, recently hooking up with local food bloggers for a taco table crawl. So, Aziz, what's your favorite taco?


I pop into this place at least 2 times a week for some delicious fish and shrimp tacos. My toppings of choice? A little hot guac, some sour cream, and some radishes. My current move is 3 fish, 1 shrimp. Once Danny Trejo and I stopped a robbery attempt there by dunking the would be perpetrator's hands into the fryer and throwing spicy mango salsa in their eyes. Needless to say, they never tried that shit again. Trejo and I now get free fish tacos for life.
