“The world is your taco. Fill it with what you want”

"The world is your oyster” is an old proverb. “The world is your taco” is a variation.

“Text from marisol: You are young, done with 1L, will be working for the ACLU, and you’re Mexican. The world is your taco!” was posted on Twitter by Stephanie Delgado on May 21, 2012. “The world is your oyster! (unless you don’t like oysters, which I don’t. The world is your taco? Yes,...that works!)” was posted on Twitter by J-U-A-N-B-O-N-D on September 1, 2013. “THE WORLD IS YOUR TACO AND YOU JUST NEED TO ADD YOUR OWN SALSA ” was posted on Twitter by Kaitlin Casey on June 14, 2014.

“THE WORLD IS YOUR TACO. FILL IT WITH WHAT YOU WANT” was posted on Facebook by El Arroyo (in a photo showing this on the restaurant’s sign) on May 5, 2021 (Cinco de Mayo).

@PickliciousF⁩ once you have mastered opening doors the world is your taco/oyster. This is me breaking into the kitchen where there may or may not have been a cooked chicken cooling down.

5. Dingo Ate My Taco
Hop on the birria taco “trend” at Dingo Ate My Taco and stay for other Tex-Mex inspired street foods like quesadillas and fresh tortilla chips and salsa, or go there to sample what it’s known for: tacos. There’s slow-smoked Texan brisket tacos topped with pico de gallo and pickled onion, or Mexican corn fungus grilled with mushroom and refried epazote black beans on a handmade blue corn tortilla. The world is your taco.
