The U.K. and Canada are the only countries in the world that offer an easy way to get the basics without having to spend hundreds of dollars on a meal, thanks to a new trend called “foodie culture.”
“I’ve been there, I’ve eaten there, and I’m still going to eat there,” said J.A. Sargent, who lives in the small town of Renton, Washington, with his wife, Jessica, and their son.
“The food is really good, and they serve good, fresh, authentic Mexican food.”
Foodie culture is a term coined by the Washington Post to describe a culture of eating out, where people eat at restaurants, bars, or places like Starbucks and other fast-food restaurants and eat the rest of the day on their own.
The idea is that by sharing their meals, they are connecting with other like-minded individuals and sharing their love of food.
In the past year, the trend has spread to other countries.
On Saturday, Mexican-American singer-songwriter-producer Tanya Tucker, who is from Renton but grew up in a suburb of Seattle, tweeted that she would eat at a Taco Bell for free if she could find a place to eat for $10.
Her tweet has since gone viral and generated over 6,000 retweets and more than 60,000 likes.
Taco Bell, a popular chain in the United States, has opened restaurants in a number of cities, including Seattle and San Francisco, but in Renton the restaurant chain, owned by Mexican-Americans, is the only local eatery offering free meals.
Tucker said she found a Taco Mart in the area and bought a few tacos, and after that she went to the local Taco Bell to get some drinks.
Tucker, like many Americans, doesn’t have a formal dining plan and only eats out on weekends.
“It’s kind of fun to get out there and go to these restaurants, but it’s really about the food, and it’s about the community,” Tucker said.
You want to share a couple of bites, but if you don: a) you’re hungry or b) you don, you’re going to be eating the whole taco,” she added. “
When you get a taco, you don’t really want to eat the whole thing.
You want to share a couple of bites, but if you don: a) you’re hungry or b) you don, you’re going to be eating the whole taco,” she added.
Tucker’s family of four has been at her place since January.
“We had to drive across town from Seattle to make it to our new place,” she said.
Tucker is not the first to take advantage of this trend.
In July, actress Jodi Arias and her husband, comedian and actor Josh Gad, were in New York City for a charity dinner that featured free meals from local restaurants.
Arias’ husband, Josh Gad’s former partner and best friend, has also launched a taco-eating club in Los Angeles called The Good Taco.
But the foodies in Rountree are enjoying the social aspect of the trend as much as the actual food.
“Taco culture has been really exciting,” said Jessica Sargen, who has lived in Rodeo Park for the past five years and now works at a local college.
“Everyone is getting together for a meal.
It’s really just a nice, relaxed atmosphere.
The kids really like it.
The girls are super into it.
There’s no one telling them no.
You’re eating and people are saying ‘come eat.’
It’s just really a really nice thing to do.”
