LA County Fair - Indian Taco

Went to the Fair for the first time in years.  I was a corn on the cob farmer and a fierce crab. If you have no idea what I'm saying then you probably don't know me.  There was so much food that my head nearly exploded - I WANTED TO REVIEW EVERYTHING.  My lone stomach prevented me from doing that, so I had to pinpoint exactly what I should review.  Seeing how this is TACOGRAPHICS, the choice had to be somewhat unique but ultimately TACO BASED. 

I noticed a huge stand in the distance that said INDIAN TACOS.  I was like WHAT THE FUCK IS AN INDIAN TACO.  Minutes later I was ordering one.  The thing is not really a taco, more like a tostada bottomed with chili.  The other catch is instead of a fried tortilla shell, the base containing the lettuce, cheese, and (southwest-esque) salsa was a fresh gooey pita-type bread.  It had a nice texture and wasn't too light or heavy - thumbs up.

The chili was probably just a Hormel-canned chili with beans or something similar.  Overall, a gimmick-y fair food that I would probably not get again for the mere fact there are tons of other foods to try.  Speaking of gimmicks, I had fried kool-aid for dessert (it tasted like  cherry muffins).  Anyway, if you're still reading, here's the pic of the "Indian taco":
