This Week in Food: Luxe Loncheras, More Luxe Loncheras, and Even More Luxe Loncheras!

We went luxe lonchera crazy this week, and even crazier in other departments. The bedlam after the jump! Michelle reported on Taco Bell threatening to sue the law firm that filed a a lawsuit (since dropped) claiming the fast-food titan didn't sell real beef, found a girl who sports a tattoo of a bowl of pho and Sriracha, and discovered that the creators of Four Loko have finally broken their silence.

Dave found a great new luxe lonchera in Flipped Out Burgers, hailed Seabirds' recent call-out by PETA as one of the country's better vegan trucks, and gave us 10 culinary reasons to visit Tijuana, with--amazingly, for our publication--not many haters.

Edwin found that a Belgian bakery is opening its first OC outpost in Fashion Island, found that the Lime Truck is competing in the next installment of The Great Food Truck Race, and found another amazing Rick's Atomic Cafe creation with their veggie burger.

I found a great caterer for your next event, remembered when Carl's Jr. released goofy-wholesome commercials instead of goofy-slutty ones, and welcomed the latest food writers into OC's writing scene.

Shuji shuddered at the thought of Pepsi's new vending machine, found many ways to kill a Cadbury Creme Egg, and celebrated the Lobsta Truck's OC debut.

Anne Marie found a new fish-n-chips place in Orange, and sat down with the BACONMANia madman.

Finally, Javier tried Vietnamese desserts for the first time at Thach Che Hien Khanh, and Vickie gave us the true royal wedding to care about with Royal Crown and RC Cola.

Happy eating!
