This is Bananas

(Ok, actually it's beef.) And, though I'm grateful to El Pollo Loco (caution, sound) for digging through the 37-page ingredient document to reveal the hidden chickencow, gotta wonder what the motives were there, especially with this comment from EPL's president and chief exec: "I can assure you that you won’t find any beef in El Pollo Loco’s fresh, natural, citrus-marinated chicken cooked over an open flame right in front of our guests."

I mean, hey, always good to know there's no beef in the chicken. (Or, for that matter, the fries.) And hey, it's only been 152 years since the Sepoy Mutiny; there's still plenty of time to learn a lesson from that.
