People all over the world have a strange fascination with fast food. Some might say that people enjoy the ‘fast’ aspect of it, as they can pop in, receive food, and leave faster than food should normally take to cook. Others may enjoy the typically low prices of fast food. For the most part, the world loves fast food due to its known foods. Hamburger fast food restaurants exist the most, as everyone recognizes a hamburger. The idea of fast food has taken off so much that some businesses imitate another culture’s cuisine by making food that only resembles the real deal. For example, nearly everyone can agree that the food served at Taco Bell has nothing to do with real Mexican food. Likewise, things like Orange Chicken has more of an American history than Chinese. Sadly, no matter how much one attempts to educate the public, they will still prefer fast food, as the menu feels safe as opposed to something new. Leave it to some crafty individuals to take advantage of the public’s love of fast food to come up with something so unique yet still in the realm of fast food that wows everyone who visits them.

Everyone recognizes both Chinese fast food and Mexican fast food, but have you ever thought about what would happen if someone combined the two? Well, this combination finally happened at Dragon Loco, a Chinese & Mexican fusion fast food restaurant. Tucked away at the back of a strip mall, this small restaurant takes everything you know about Chinese fast food and stuffs it into forms more common at Mexican fast food places. They allow the customer to select the choice of meat, then how they want the food prepared. Meats include Kung Pao chicken, BBQ pork, teriyaki chicken (regular or spicy), tofu, carne asada, orange chicken (regular or spicy), and shrimp. From here, you can order any of those meats in food such as tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and more. Of particular note, the Burrito Loco takes an entire meal and stuffs it into a burrito – fried rice AND chow mein fill up this tortilla along with the meat. Props to them for using the unique name Juantons, and for making them with cream cheese and chorizo.

Although fast food exists all around the world, the United States has made it the most prevalent. Will Americans ever get over the fast food hype? Of course healthier options exist out there, but sometimes we value certain things like money, time, and convenience that coax us into going for fast food. If you have a hankering for fast food, at least make it count and support your local mom & pop shops, such as the folks at Dragon Loco out in Ontario.

  1. I agree with what you said here “no matter how much one attempts to educate the public, they will still prefer fast food”. Too bad! Honestly, I’ve been a fast food lover for years and I don’t think I could get over with that. What’s amazing is that, I learned to try eating at fine dining restaurants. Here’s one of them. Try them out.
