The Dos Hermanos Taco Truck was a happy sight after 9pm on Tuesday as I headed down from Napa wondering where Id get a bite for dinner. Its located on the north-east corner of Sereno Drive and Sonoma Blvd. in the furniture store parking lot across from Smart & Final.
Ive seen this truck early in the morning too, ca. 9am. These guys put in a long shift and I wasnt too hopeful of freshly prepared food. So, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the two tacos I ordered one cabeza and one lengua. Theyre $1.25 each, a little bigger for the extra quarter and bulked up by some beans. Normally, I dont care for beans in a taco, but these whole beans had a lovely creamy texture. They were a little bigger than pintos but I couldnt tell what kind they were in the dark of my car. The tortillas themselves were outstanding very limey and thin, and as delicate and tender as the handmade type freshly made. The tongue (lengua) was mostly buttery but there were a few tough pieces in there. The cabeza (beef cheek) was soft and tender from long braising to release all its flavor. The hot sauce was orange in color and freshly made, not bottled. My only real complaint is that the onions were overly sulfurous and bitter. All in all, a worthwhile stop and another satisfying entry in the sticky steering wheel dining club journal.
