Okay, yes, corned-beef pho would probably be the right answer. What's the second best?
Irish-Mexican mash-ups! And that's exactly what Fullerton's (O')Matador Cantina is doing. Corned-beef-and-cabbage fajitas? Sounds better than boiled dinner, especially if there were a pairing with potato tacos. Irish tortas, corned-beef sliders, the required cerveza verde. . . .
One question, though, Matador muchachos: Why, for the love of blarnita, would you put Bushmills on special? Anyone who has ever set foot across the southern border knows that Mexicans drink "Bucanas"--Buchanan's Irish Whisky. Put the 12-year on sale, then start selling the more expensive 18-year once the irritating bagpipe music has pushed people to drink more heavily.
