GIVEAWAY: TWO (2) PAIRS OF VIP TIX TO LA WEEKLY’S SOLD OUT “TACOLANDIA” PRESENTED BY TABASCO®

This is part of a sponsored campaign with TABASCO®. However, all opinions expressed are my own.Tabasco-Hot-Sauce-Taco-Los-Angeles-LA-Weekly-Tacolandia-2015

CALLING ALL TACO LOVERS!!! Do I have a giveaway that is tailor made just for you. Listen up, lovebugs!! As you all know, TACOS are BAE in my foodie life. No matter where I am in the world, I am constantly on the hunt for the best taco. Case in point, I found a bad ass tacqueria in Bejing, China, of all places!!! It’s a little hidden joint, simply called “Taco Bar”. And while the name may be simple, the tacos are anything but. Here’s the menu, so you can see for yourself.

The food is delicious and the place is constantly packed. I still can’t believe they had “lengua”!! While I was there, several members of the Mexican Embassy, residing in Beijing, were eating across the table from me AND their was a Piñata party happening outside on Taco Bar’s deck!! Words can’t even describe my joy and pride as a Latina, to see my culture and food bring happiness to the tastebuds living in Asia.

However, there was one thing missing….TABASCO®!! As a lover of all things spicy, TABASCO® is my go to sauce when I am on the road. And with so many flavors these days, I have to admit it’s even more tempting to carry my own bottle with me. LOL! I recently saw these mini bottles available, which are obviously already TSA approved. 😀 It would be awesome if they come in all 15 of the TABASCO® flavors so I could take one of each. A girl can dream right?
