Chowhound Assignment:Your Top 5 Food Carts/Trailers

scrumptiouschef | Apr 22, 2007 11:23 AM

Let's talk about our favorite food carts.Let's go deep on this one.We need two factors to be satisfied:Obscurity and Intense Deliciousness.If we have to choose between the two then opt out for I.D over obscurity...some places can't help if they're well placed and popular.I'm heading over to El Rico[Montopolis] this afternoon to plow through more of her menu and am satisfied she'll make the top 5.Reggie's[Chicon] obviously at this point has already been semi-celebrated but more investigation is clearly warranted.El Rapido[downtown and only on weekends]is very fine,the ratio of Mexicans to white folks in their line at 2:30 in the morning tells the real story.Haven't read too much about the taco cart inside Fiesta Mart but her Carnitas are on par with Hacienda's for luxury in your mouth deliciousness.The cart with no name on Comal just south of 7th st is going to be a strong contender in this category,I've found it's array of meats to be waaay above average and the use of cabbage instead of lettuce always hollers authentic.These are my initial 5.What are yours'?
