A New Year, A New Location for Mister Taco Truck in Salinas

Melanie Wong | Jan 14, 200909:12 PM     2

As of last fall, one of my favorite trucks, Mister Taco, has taken up a new location in Salinas. It’s now parked near the corner of Sun and Commission streets, about a block away and around the corner from its former site, and is usually here Monday through Saturday from around 11am to 6pm. The truck has a new paint job too.

Tacos have gone up a dime. A couple weeks ago I tried one with chicken asada. The chicken is griddled with zero transfat “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter” margarine for a little extra flavor and less saturated fat. I also had my usual, quesadilla de maiz al pastor.

Partnering with the Council for a Healthier Salinas, Mister Taco has posted “no smoking” within 20 feet of the truck as part of the voluntary “smoke-free entryways” program. Mobile vendors in Salinas are leading the way in protecting customers from secondhand smoke.
