Ok so here’s my idea:
Her favorite restaurant is this nice cantina downtown. I’m going to have our friend call her and invite us out AFTER dinner. So on the way we’ll decide on the cantina, and I’m going to devise a special taco with the manager that she wouldn’t be able to not order, and when she gets her plate it’s just the soft corn taco shell folded over the ring. When she opens to investigate, I get on the knee. I’m here to ask what to call the taco as a theme for wedding/marriage/diamond/ring. A couple ideas I’ve come up with are the “bling” taco, but it doesn’t really match up with their menu, or the boda taco(marriage in Spanish). Any ideas people?! Thanks for the help in advance!

Sounds dangerous for the ring.

What about ultimate taco?

You could have them bring the ring (in the ring box) out in the bowl of chips and that way she doesn’t have to order the “right” taco.

@tfr54: do you really need to have a name for this taco that she has ”no choice’ but to order? Won’t the name of it tip her off? You could just have the waiter or manager bring out the taco as a surprise. And probably would leave the ring in its box – I’m envisioning the waiter tripping or something – taco, plate, ring goes flying and everyone is on the ground searching for it. Not very romantic but would make for a story later.

I really do not advise putting a ring in a taco. What if she goes to take a bite?!

I’m weary of ring-in-food ideas. I wouldn’t want it to get eaten or even dirty.

@cheebs: +1 … then again, I love me some chips and salsa.

@tfr54: Get a cheap ring to put inside the tortilla (which will be brought to her regardless of what she orders) just so she gets the idea of whats going on and when she opens the tortilla you’ll get down on one knee and pop out the real ring.

I have to agree with PPs. Is there a specific reason you want to put the ring in the taco? Besides just being her favorite restaurant, why do you want to propose there? Also, is the going out with a friend after a ploy, or is that really going to happen? (I ask this last one because I really wouldn’t want to go out with a friend afterwards. She’s probably going to want to call her parents and yours and share the excitement with multiple people. Going out right after might be a burden).
My husband proposed to me at a restaurant. I kind of saw the proposal coming but didn’t know exactly when or where it was going to happen. It was a nice restaurant in a colonial inn. Perfectly my style, but I had never been there before. He waited till the end of dinner and then did his whole speech and got down on one knee. The excitement came from the joy of getting engaged and being in love. The location really didn’t matter that much to us. It could just as easily have been somewhere else.
For another couple though, maybe the location is very important! I know my husband agonized over where to do it. Don’t drive yourself crazy trying to plan it, but do consider why you’re choosing certain things. I would advise you to make decisions based on things she likes that are her style. But don’t feel obligated to go to her favorite restaurant just cause it’s her favorite. I enjoyed my proposal just as much having a nice dinner somewhere else that is now special to me because that’s where he proposed.

@tfr54: In regards to the name, if you really think you need a special taco/name you could name it something like “Love Taco” “Couple’s taco: Great for sharing” … if you do go with the couple’s taco you can suggest you get it to share it with her and when proposing just mention something about sharing your life together to tie everything 🙂

I would have the restaurant incorporate the ring into whatever she orders instead of getting her to order one specific dish that you don’t know for sure if she’ll want. And if you hint that she should get the “special taco” then she might think something’s up. Just make sure the ring doesn’t get all dirty with food and definitely don’t let her eat it haha. Good luck! Maybe have the waiter bring out a surprise dessert with the ring on top?
