The 500 tacos brought to East Haven Mayor Joseph Maturo Jr. by Reform Immigration for America on Thursday was impressive and made a point, but how does it compare to current Taco-related world record holders? Well, it depends on the type of Taco and who you ask. Our enterprise reporting team did some digging and we have the breakdown.
The largest flour taco in the world weighed 750 kg (1,654 lb) and was made by the city of Mexicali and Cocinex SA de CV, in Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico on 8 March 2003, according to Guinness World Records.
However, Mexico beat its own record in 2011 creating a 50-meter long taco in the Mexican capital’s Plaza Garibaldi (WATCH THE VIDEO). The taco was filled with an “indeterminate” volume of onion, rice, cilantro, pork cracklings, beef, chicken, eggs and sausages. Unfortunately, the City didn’t have enough enough funds to register the record with Guinness World Records.Screen shot 2012 01 27 at 3.38.35 PM 300x222 Some Amazing Taco World Records
“We’re in the process of registering it, but it implies an expenditure that can’t be contemplated right now of more than 400,000 pesos (some $33,000),” municipal official Agustin Torres Pérez told news service EFE.
Mexico had made another record-breaking taco in the same City the year before, according to the newspaper El Mundo.
