Three random things from my cruft pile today (I'm throwing out most of it and putting the rest in a box for our move to San Diego)... this is #1. Border Bell existed for most of 1997 in Mountain View, CA; at the time, we were living about a mile away in a rented house. They had one of the best things I've ever tasted on their menu: crumbled sweet corn, which was fresh roasted corn mashed wtih cornmeal to make a deliciously sweet, filling dessert. Sadly, Taco Bell decided not to go ahead with the concept, leaving the market for upscale freshly-made fast(ish) Mexican food to Baja Fresh and Chipotle, both of whom existed at the time (but were still small).
