This week I stopped at the taco truck parked in the driveway in front of what appears to be a private residence. Tacos are $2.50 apiece and a bit larger than typically sold at trucks. Tortillas were properly sweated and served in double thickness. They’re topped with chopped red onions, cilantro, a thick red salsa, and served with lime wedges, carrots and jalapeños en escabeche and slices of radish. I tried one each of carnitas, lengua, tripas, and al pastor. Best of the bunch was lengua, chopped buttery soft tongue. Tripas were the soft style rather than crispy, not my thing, but at a good price. Al pastor was pretty good, and carnitas, too dried out.
Not a destination truck, but good enough for a quick snack if you’re in the neighborhood. The truck is also available for catering gigs.
