A puffy taco is just like a regular taco, except the shell is part-tortilla, part-flotation device. You could get the ones from Sexy Alley while sitting down at Hotel Albatross alongside some tiki cocktails, but if you don’t have the time to live out a ska music video over flaming volcano drinks, stop by their window next-door and add some tater tot nachos, just for fun.
