Tom's hard-shell-taco deal is the epitome of the genre: U-shaped corn tortilla lightly fried before your eyes to a consistency that keeps the maize flavor and doesn't turn into greasy shards upon one bite, but isn't so soft that the beef seeps through (few things are worse in life than a wet corn tortilla). Equal layers of ground beef or chicken, lettuce, and cheese get stuffed in immediately afterward: the meat nibbles lean toward dry but keep a strong flavor; lettuce remains crisp, wet and refreshing; and the Cheddar shavings are milky and not too strong.
