Vidorra adds a four-pound taco to its menu


What goes well with a gallon-size Margarita? A four-pound taco. And now you can order both at Vidorra’s two locations – in Addison and Dallas.

Who needs a four-pound taco or an Olympic pool-size ‘rita? No idea, which is why they are meant for sharing.

Okay, so maybe the giant cocktail isn’t quite a gallon in size, but Rodman Shields, Vidorra’s culinary director, says the taco definitely weighs in at four pounds. Maybe more if the kitchen crew has been drinking.

To make the $28 taco, called El Jefe on the menu, cooks fry an 18-inch jalapeño cheddar flour tortilla until its crispy then stuff it with taco beef, chorizo, shredded lettuce, shredded cheese, queso, pico de gallo, guacamole and jalapeños.

A press release describing the monster taco quotes Shields as saying, “At Vidorra, we enjoy taking an adventurous approach to celebrating Mexican food, drinks and culture. We’re already well-known for our over-the-top cocktails, so true to our innovative spirit, we had to match that vibe with a taco so big our guests won’t believe it until they see it. Food should be an experience, and the El Jefe delivers on that.”

No way he said that. I know Rodman. He doesn’t talk like that. PR people do. But PR people don’t make or eat four-pound tacos. Rodman does, which means we’re going to have to try it ourselves.
