La Panchanguera Taco Truck, SF

jen maiser | Dec 17, 200303:03 PM

I don't know if this is a new taco truck, or if I have just been ignorant, but I don't remember any Chowhound comments about it.

The truck is located in the Office Max parking lot at 13th and Harrison. I have noticed it there during the day -- not sure about evening time. Looks like they set up at around 11.

The side of the truck says that it is Salvadoran and Mexican. The menu is burritos, quesadillas, breakfast burritos, egg dishes, and tacos. I could swear that when I drove by a couple days ago, there was more on the menu, but today they had a large portion of the menu covered up by a piece of aluminum foil. So not sure what else there is.

The tacos they have (that I remember) are ground beef, carnitas, and carne asada. There was at least one more but I can't remember what it was. Pretty benign, straightforward offerings.

I had a carnitas taco. The meat was good, if a bit greasy. Closer to soft and stewy than crispy. Garnished with onion and cilantro, and a red salsa. The salsa had no spice -- there was nothing special about it at all.

I will probably return to see if there is anything about this menu that is superb. I probably wouldn't go back for the carnitas taco, though, seeing as how the El Tonayense truck is right down the street.

Has anyone else tried this truck?
