Food Friday: Taco Truck



Yes, sometimes the best food comes on a truck. Lately, Jimmy and I have been enjoying one of the things I swore I'd never be part of . . . the taco truck. There is just something about its authentic goodness that I can't resist. It is quick, cheap, and delicious. Now, being the hypochondriac that I am, I discussed this with my cousin who is a doctor to make sure I was taking all the necessary heath precautions, and he informed me of the recent "following" of gourmet food trucks in the LA area. Some are so big that you need to follow Twitter to find the next lunch location spot. Needless to say, I won't be searching Twitter anytime soon. So local taco truck, remain on my block and we will be in business.

Do you eat from Taco Trucks?

  1. I was just talking about taco trucks with a friend! My younger sister's husband always says the best tacos and mexican food comes from taco truck or hole in the wall places, and he is always on the hunt for one when they are in LA visiting me...so, you are right, you just can't beat their "authentic goodness!" Looks yummy!

  5. Food trucks are so big in LA right now too. I just went to Taste of Abbot Kinney recently and tried out lots of them and they were all delicious! I do get nervous about the health hazards though. I heard they now have inspections and get grades just like restaurants, so that's reassuring. How fun that you're in LA this week and going to Mastro's tonight!!! I love the lobster mashed potatoes too. Anytime there's a mixture of lobster or crab with carbs, I'm a happy camper. Enjoy your visit with your family and I hope to see pictures of your Mastro's dinner on here next week!

  9. Yum. I remember when we used to go down the flea market on Sundays we would also buy burritos from the food truck and those burritos were huge and really good too!

  11. I love taco vans! You get a meal and a free pet. What is the free pet you ask? Intestinal worms.

  12. I have never heard of taco trucks. That is so cool. Our town is probably way too small for it. Too funny.
