I have a serious guilty pleasure with Del Taco. Guess it isn't guilty since I'm openly admitting it. It's great though, I prefer it to Taco Bell because I feel like it has more variety. Even now with their new fresco bowls.
The new menu items include:
Pollo Asada Avocado Bowl – quality grilled chicken, fresh sliced avocado, seasoned black beans, fresca lime rice, handmade pico de gallo salsa and fresh diced onions.
Green Chile Chicken Avocado Bowl – quality grilled chicken, fresh sliced avocado, seasoned black beans, fresca lime rice, handmade pico de gallo salsa and fresh diced onions.
Avocado Veggie Bowl – loaded with fresh sliced avocado, handmade pico de gallo salsa, seasoned black beans, fresh diced onions and fresca lime rice.
I tried their avocado veggie bowl because I'm vegetarian (pesctarian technically, that's why I love DT because of their fish and shrimp tacos). I loved it. It's difficult finding healthy food choices when you lead a busy life so that's why some people get lazy and eat a lot of fast food. At least Del Taco is taking steps into adding healthier selections to their menu like these bowls.
Also now, Add Fresh Avocado to Any Item: One or three slices of fresh Hass avocado. One slice priced at 30 cents, three slices for 90 cents. Del Taco’s partnership with the California Avocado Commission is a part of the company’s UnFreshing Believable campaign designed to spotlight its dedication to providing quality, delicious, made-to-order menu items with freshly-prepared ingredients at an unbelievable price.
The veggie bowl was delicious, it had everything that I love: avocados, black beans, and delicious lime rice that was just a great kick of flavor. This bowl is 460 calories which is a little hefty but considering it has good fats like avocados and protein like black beans I'd say it's one of the better decisions to make at Del Taco and for $4 you really can't go wrong.
Overall, I loved this bowl and definitely plan on getting more in the future. Try it out you won't be disappointed!
