Where does 🌮 Taco emoji come from?

The Taco emoji 🌮 was approved under Unicode 8.0 in 2015. On most major platforms, the emoji resembles a taco with a hard or soft tortilla shell filled with meat, lettuce, cheese and sometimes tomatoes and/or onions. On most major platforms, the taco is tilted so that the fillings are visible from the left. The WhatsApp version of the emoji is tilted the other direction with fillings visible from the right side.

Tacos are a popular food that can be bought at supermarkets or taco carts. Because most people know that tacos come from Mexico, the Taco emoji 🌮 is sometimes used to specifically refer to Mexico. If it is, it may be accompanied by the Flag of Mexico emoji 🇲🇽.
