Story: Danny Trejo Says Burger King’s Whopperrito Isn’t Helping Obesity

I can’t tell if this dude’s a fan of the Whopperrito or Danny Trejo. Maybe both.

Danny Trejo Says Burger King’s Whopperrito Isn’t Helping Obesity

danny-trejo-01-stk

At the launch of his new food truck, we spoke to actor Danny Trejo reagarding his healthy eating habits. Y’know, the kind of diet that makes a 72-year-old man look like he’s still in his 50s.

We asked him what he thought of Burger King’s new Whopperrito, a commercial fast food take on the Tex-Mex dish.

Here’s what he told FOODBEAST:

One of the reasons we have such an obesity problem in the Mexican population is because our food is starchy and really heavy. I don’t think McDonald’s or Burger King can help that issue. They’re a part of the problem, really.

He then spoke about how his truck differed greatly from such items like the Whopperrito.

Our truck has vegan food, gluten free [food], vegetarian, and good carne asada. Even carne asada, it’s a good meat. It’s not like your Burger King [meat], it’s a good meat so it’s not gonna be bad for you.

In specific, one of Trejo’s menu items is a colorful vegan cauliflower taco. This is a huge contrast to what Burger King offers in the burger/burrito hybrid with chopped up beef, cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes; essentially the contents of a Whopper inside a large flour tortilla.

You can find the Trejo’s Taco truck cruising around the Los Angeles area, where you might even run into Trejo himself.

Hollywood Badass Danny Trejo’s New LA Joint Serves Vegan Tacos

Trejos-Tacos-Cover

Danny Trejo just stepped into the taco business and we couldn’t be happier. The star of such films as Machete, Machete Kills and Spy Kids has now become a part owner of a Los Angeles-based taquieria called Trejo’s Tacos.

The three partners of the establishment are Trejo, film producer Ash Shah and  Jeff Gorgino.

Trejo’s Tacos will serve 10 different kinds of tacos, the Los Angeles Times reports. Designed by former Cook’s County chef Daniel Mattern, the mysterious menu features a couple of vegan tacos as well. This includes a tofu taco and a fried avocado taco.

You can find the restaurant on 1048 S. La Brea Ave. in Los Angeles. The official soft opening of Trejo’s Tacos will be next week and an official opening the week after.

So stoked to try this.
