Take-Out Review: Sabrosada - Fountain Valley

The first bite is always the best.

You feel the sturdy corn crunch of the freshly fried tortilla chips reverberate through your skull. Your tongue is warmed by the refried beans. Then you taste the beefiness of the pencil-eraser morsels of seasoned carne asada.

Next there’s the color bursts: the bright green goo of the guacamole; the yellow shredded cheese; the snowy sour cream; the tricolored pico de gallo.

Even if you were blind, the kaleidoscope of flavors unfurls in your mouth. It’s synesthesia at its most delicious.

When so many things right now don’t make sense, this drive-thru Styrofoam box of nachos does.

Remorse always follows the last chip, not because of the fat and calories, but because you always want another one.
