It's a guilty pleasure food, indeed. People know it's unhealthy, yet we still eat it. I do it too. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Never tried it. Only saw it in a movie, does it taste like French or Italian bread from Walmart?

4 Sushi - Japan
5 Taco - Mexico Taco - Mexico A taco is a traditional Mexican dish composed of a corn or wheat tortilla folded or rolled around a filling.

This is weird, it's not even that Mexican, it is a Mexican food yes, but it's more tex-mex then true Mexican, and it's still so defining to the Mexican culture - b0b_l0b_law
