Don Tacos’ new quesadilla chips try to satisfy Mexican food cravings

by

Special To The Japan Times

Finding fantastic Mexican food in Tokyo isn’t easy — the hunt to find authentic cuisine seems to consume many non-Japanese living here.

Don Tacos new limited edition quesadilla-flavor Premiago chips (¥142) are spicy but definitely won’t put an end to the search. This is one of the spicier chips you will find at your local convenience store, but in terms of taste Premiago is just a hotter version of Don Tacos’ original taco flavor chips, which basically taste like Nacho Cheese Doritos. For those wanting a little more heat in their snacks, though, it’s worth seeking out.

    Wait — we have here basically a paragraph about a bag of chips someone purchased at a Lawson’s? and this got published?! With a “Special to the Japan Times” subtitle? What kind of world are we living in? Are you hiring for writers (because you seem to have a shortage of quality articles.)? What was the writer thinking “hmm, I’ll write about this bag of chips I’m eating…” — reflects poorly on your attempt to be a legitimate newspaper.

    Sure convenience stores are fun – but in a country with such an amazing food culture – to publish this paragraph about a bag of chips — seems utterly ridiculous – for example, in the U.S. – if I picked up a quality work of journalism like the New York Times – I don’t think I would find an idiotic paragraph about a new flavor of Doritos. In fact I don’t think I would find such an article in any respectable publication. Oh! – but it’s talking about the hunt for Mexican cuisine!! Oh really – in a bag of chips ?! — Do you think only idiots come to Japan from English speaking countries? Great way to honor the cultures of Japan and Mexico. I know I should lighten up — but it is just pathetic what is able to get published these days.

    Any other crap you bought at your Lawson’s visit – that you want to write a paragraph about ? —- This article isn’t even worth a Facebook post — much less publication.
