“Inside out, inside out,” shouted Pasta John, an Emory University chef while directing co-workers and volunteers in the creation of the world-record breaking longest line of tacos outside of the Dobbs University center on the Emory campus yesterday afternoon.
The 654 feet and 5 inch long taco line, which was made up of a total of 1457 fish tacos all touching, successfully broke the World Record for longest line of tacos. The record-breaking feat used over 250 pounds of sustainable Alaskan Pollack, according to Michel Henri Wetli, Emory Campus Executive Chef. Emory originally achieved the record in 2011, with a record setting 260 tacos measuring 121 feet, before being bested by Michigan State University with a line of 847 tacos, finally, in early February, the University of Rochester claimed the record with 1036 tacos on February 8, 2012.
“It is about 3 things, breaking the world record, promoting sustainability and promoting healthy eating,” said Chef Wetli.
With the record broken and the announcement “Let’s eat,” from the stage, the crowds descended on the tacos, “it tastes like cole slaw,” said Darrell Spearman, an Emory senior after taking a bite, “and that’s not good.”
After the initial rush to eat the tacos, hundreds of fish tacos were still on the table. At the end of the event Welti estimated 87% of the tacos were consumed, leaving about 190 to be disposed of.
Eugene, how could there be crowds if no one went there?
Pretty soon the Kimball House will be so popular that nobody goes there due to…
Hope everyone had a great time over the weekend and enjoyed some tasty food.
Whimsical? That makes no sense.
We do not go to Kimball or any other restaurant that has a "no reservations"…
