One of My Favorite Podcast Just Made Up an El Paso Restaurant
If you are a lover of podcasts, you might already know about Bad Friends.
In this recent episode, you are treated to an exclusive act of Rudy being a host at a Mexican food restaurant. The scene features Andrew and Bobby playing a couple out on a date night. During this play, they are improvising most of the play which brings in this imaginary restaurant.
Coming straight out of Bobby Lee's mind, Totijunas is a restaurant that originated from El Paso but has moved around a lot. I just appreciate Bobby Lee thinking of El Paso as a place to originate some amazing Mexican restaurants.
Since the comedians are still improvising what is on the menu, I don't think this restaurant idea would ever make it due to their variety of dishes and drinks. The best thing on the menu sounds like a bucket of spring water.
You can hear the whole play completely improvised in the podcast episode below.
While the pandemic hurt many restaurants, some are still trying to recover. A few new restaurants and businesses are managing to still open up, including Hook and Reel in East El Paso. I have been waiting around to see what happens with that because I drive by it almost every day.
Even though this is a fake restaurant, I can still dream that one day a restaurant owned by some of my favorite comedians will become a reality right here in El Paso, Texas!
