Dissin' the tortilla

Tortillas replaced by pitas? In San Antonio?

Surely you jest.
Watch your back, tortillas — you have some serious competition in the form of flatbread.

Known the world over in many forms — naan, foccacia, saj, pita, chapatti — flatbreads or unleavened breads are staples in Middle Eastern, Italian and Indian cuisines.
(from the Express-News)

All of those breads are nice, and there may be quite a few places in town that feature these delectable delights, but posing "serious competition" to tortillas? Really? Tortillas are king in this town, and they always will be.

I'm going to make a bold prediction here: Never will you ever see a co-worker come into your office or workplace carrying a bag of tacos made with beans and cheese and foccacia. And, if you do see this, something is wrong with your co-worker. Stay away from him. And don't accept his carne guisada on naan either.

There is so much fail in that article I'm not entirely certain where to begin. How about here: Focaccia is not an unleavened bread! Yes, it is flat, but it calls for yeast. Yeast = leavening. For that matter, the same can be said of pita bread and naan. (And most likely the others, but I don't feel like looking them up to be positive.)

Whoever wrote that article was an idiot, for more reasons than the claim that anything is going to replace tortillas in the stomach of San Antonio
