This past weekend I got to attend the Tacotopia event at Golden Hill Park in Sand Diego.
Tacotopia?! Ha...I don't undertand...well chikas it's 
an event where the best tacqueria's and taco shops in San Diego come out
to give you a signature taste of their own unique taco version.

I mean talk about the jack pot of taco heaven. There was literally taco vendors everywhere and I din't know where to start, but I found myself slowly creeping up to the Got Milk? stand. 
"Spicy Loves Milk" incorporated a healthier and spicier taco with milk pairing. It may sound weird at first,  but once you a sample the blazing pork belly blossom with a shot of milk. It made a whole lot of sense as to what chef Michael Ruffner wanted you to experience.

He created a taco recipe that is true to their city's culture, personality and taste, while showcasing milk's versatility and unique ability to complement exciting spicy flavors and tone down the heat. "This food pairing
couldn't have been more perfect," said Steve James.

taco coma.
