Leonardo DiCaprio Claims Pupusas are better than Tacos

Leonardo DiCaprio had sent the social media into a crazy mode when he disclosed in an interview that he prefers pupusas over tacos.

“I am a pupusa man.”

The cast had been asked about their favorite kind of Mexican food. Brad Pitt went with tacos.“I am a pupusa man myself,” Leonardo proclaimed during an interview on Univision. In anticipation of his upcoming summer blockbuster directed by Quentin Tarantino, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. He further added, “pupusa are better than tacos to me.”

Listening to this statement, Brad Pitt, who was sitting next to Leonardo DiCaprio, said: “I mean there are competitions here about who has the best taco in L.A.”  He adds, “you cannot live in Los Angeles and not love Mexican food.”

Quentin Tarantino responds to brad’s comment and recommends, “Yuca’s” an old L.A. Taco favorite. And the first Mexican restaurant in L.A. to win a James Beard award in the “America’s Classics” category in 1998.

Latinx heavily influences L.A. culture, and you’ll always find different types of cuisine. Pupusa is a thick corn tortilla often stuffed with cheese, refried beans or meat are Salvadoran, not Mexican. And this didn’t stop the internet from going crazy. But the way everyone is reacting to his statement is inappropriate, like okay, everyone has their own choices. So stop comparing and enjoy other’s food and culture.
