Indian Taco at Monroe's

Up in Midwest City, Oklahoma, not far from the snapping jaws of the Evil Corporation, is a hidden gem of a lunchtime spot - Monroe's Cafe #2. They serve Asian and American food. The menu is HUGE! Best of all, they have daily lunch specials.

They are famous for two things there. One of them is an open face, double meat chili cheeseburger named the "Big Sexy". The other is the Indian Taco. Here's one of those.

This thing is positively HUGE! If you envision a monster taco that's open to the world, stuffed full of meat, veggies and cheese, then you're close. The Indian Taco has beans, but not the Spanish or Mexican kind that are boiled into softness, crushed into submission and smeared across a stiff, uncaring tortilla. The beans in an Indian Taco are proud, seasoned and whole, never crushed or beaten. There is no tortilla here. Nope, this is bonafide Indian Fry Bread from an old recipe. It's damned good eatin'.

I love indian tacos. Unfortunately the one place that sells them here uses a weird sweet bread and they're nasty. I have to wait for the pow wows in the summer.

Oh, so far away. I might have to sit here and look at that taco for a while.
