We don’t usually care or cover celebrity gossip, but that all changes when someone as prominent as Leonardo DiCaprio voices his opinion that he prefers pupusas over tacos.
“I’m a pupusa man myself,” he proclaimed during an interview on Univision in anticipation of his upcoming summer blockbuster directed by Quentin Tarantino, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Then, to add salt to the wound, he adds, “[They’re] better than tacos.” He was next to Brad Pitt, who added, “I mean, there are competitions here about who has the best taco [in L.A.]” Tarantino responds to Brad’s comment and recommends, “Yuca’s,” an old L.A. Taco favorite and the first Mexican restaurant in L.A. to win a James Beard Award in the “America’s Classics” category in 1998.
We will take that as a compliment, Brad, for our tenth year doing that exact taco competition that you are referring to: Taco Madness. Thank you.
