Three Brothers Taco Truck - Bay and Las Pulgas (Palo Alto)

Cecelia | Jul 27, 2006 12:51 PM

I had been watching Three Brothers taco truck move from tree shade to building shade and back these past two weeks, eyeing that rolling food haven. Yesterday, I stopped worrying about getting across the Dumbartan Bridge and up the 880 corridor before traffic snarled.

I ordered three tacos: de pollo, carne asada and lengua (each 1.50, I'm pretty sure). The tortillas weren't handmade, but are they ever at taco trucks? Even so, they came out nicely grilled and ensured that the tacos were piping hot. You get the choice of spicy or mild salsa. I went with the tomatillo not caring whether it was the spicy or the mild one.

The chicken taco and the tongue taco were scrumptious. The steak taco had an odd flavor and the meat was just a little dry. The chicken taco was composed, not of grilled chicken, but of meat stewed in a flavorful red salsa. Topped with onions and cilantro and a squeeze of lime, just delicious. The tongue taco was also good. Tender meat also topped with cilantro and onions. I used the radishes to add just a bit of bite to the taco.

All in all, a good way to fortify yourself as you head away from the Peninsula and up into the East Bay.
