If you haven’t taco’d around the border or the far north of Mexico, you may not be familiar with tacos gobernador, a shrimp taco with some combination of bell peppers, celery, onions, tomato, and sometimes cheese. It would be a shame if you haven’t had one yet, because they are delicious.
An awesome feature of tacos gobernador is that their actual composition still in a bit of state of flux — the world has not quite settled yet on what ingredients should go in the dish. Every taquero makes their gobernador a little bit different. This is how the California Burrito was during its infancy in the 90’s — if you ordered one, maybe it would have french fries in it, maybe it would have tater tots.
With that freedom of creation in mind, we’re introducing at the Half Orange our own gobernador — specifically, a gobernador torpedo sandwich (picture above). Our Gobernador Torpedo features grilled shrimp, green and red peppers, grilled onions, tomato, jalapeños, a touch of celery (it’s awesome — trust me), and oodles of melty cheese, all on a succulent hoagie roll from Starter Bakery.
This replaces the shrimp roll that was on our menu, ’cause this is better. Come try it, starting tomorrow (Wednesday).
