Burger King was the only place where I was hired, but never showed up for a day of work. Near the end of my fast food years, when I was running out of places to work until I gave up and quit, I finally threw in with Burger King, where I was hired immediately, and had my schedule sorted out. When I got home, there was a message from the local bookstore, asking if I wanted to work part time. I never showed up to work at BK.

OK. This will make you lose your appetite. So I worked as a Busboy at a fancy restaurant in Ventura California. So, one day, my friend and I were ordered by the restuarant manager to clean this filter about this huge vat of soup. It was just covered with crud and was so disgusting.
So we treid to pull the filter off the cage that held it, but it wouldn't budge. We kept pulling and pulling, then finally with all our might! The filter did not come off, but this 3 or 4 gallon sized lump of yellow crud fell off the filter and landed inside the soup.
My friend and I were shcoked and looked at each ohter like, "Uh Oh, we are in trouble!"
But the cook, just walked over, smoking a cigarette, and started stirring to vat of soup like it was no big deal>
I told my parents to never eat at that restaraunt again!

@KRYS: hahahahahahah! When I was a kid, I was raised on the usual southern staples: Chitlins, Pig feet, Souse Meat and the like. I discontinued eating the pig feet when I realized I had a hoof hanging out of my mouth. The rest, however, is still fair game!!!!!

I heard there is a good place in ebisu, But it only sits 8 people and has reservations for like six months... But then again, $50 for two enchiladas is a bit pricey.

@MIKE: For the expense, I would learn how to make enchilladas meself! As a matter-of-fact, enchilada making is loosely in my repertoire.

There's a place in town that does Chinese+Mexican food, so you can get Jade Chicken in a burrito or quesadilla, with black beans and spicy jerk rice
