New Mexico Restaurant Criticized For Trump Inspired Food Names
The "Bad Hombre," ""Lock Her Up," "Burri-Walls," and "fake news" are just some of the shocking names stirring up controversy at this New Mexico restaurant. Urban Taqueria is a new restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico that is making national headlines but not for its food. Owner Hanif Mohamed says the names of his menu items are to get people talking and it's working. He told KOAT News,
"Ninety-nine percent of the people who walk in, more than 99 percent, don't seem to have an issue with it. The menu's not designed to insult people or hurt people, but it's just meant to keep the conversation going as to what's happening around us."
With taco names like Executive Privilege, Libertarian Vegan, Bad Hombre, and burritos like Lock Her Up, The Wall and No Collusion you can see why people are talking. Urban Taqueria has been open about six weeks and since then the community has been talking. While some say the names of the menu items are "disrespectful", others say they find them simply "bold."
Urban Taqueria is located in the One Central Entertainment District of downtown Albuquerque.
