Me Llamo Taco Takes Care of Business

Update: Super terrible news… Me Llamo Taco is no longer in business.

You know what I love about Me Llamo Taco?  Everything.  Their breakfast tacos will start your day right and their lunch tacos are possibly likely the best in the city.  So when my small team at work was having a company-sponsored lunch, what else could I do but demand suggest Me Llamo Taco provide the food?  Nothing.  There was nothing else I could do.  And so the team’s lunch fate was sealed.

Me Llamo Taco – Breakfast

Update: Super terrible news… Me Llamo Taco is no longer in business.

I can’t name a single thing Austin needs less than another taco stand. Maybe another thong-wearing, bike-riding septuagenarian or a skinny-jean-wearing, fixed-gear-bike-riding, mustachioed hipster.

Me Llamo Taco. No, my name is Mike. The trailer is called Me Llamo Taco. I like it already.

Let the Battle(s) Begin!

I’ve gotten the urge to do some real scientific, in-your-face, who’s-king-of-the-castle, head-to-head(-to-head) taste tests between some of our favorite trailers.

The rules are simple: 1) Each place needs to offer up a similar, nearly identical menu item for a fair competition. 2) The food needs to come from a trailer. That’s it. Let the battle(s)… BEGIN!

The Peached Tortilla’s New Endeavors

As far as food trucks go The Peached Tortilla is on my short-list of best evers.  They focus on the highest quality food with new and exciting flavors, all while remembering everyone’s name.  Their primary focus is on tacos and sliders made with unique combinations like crunchy catfish or pork belly (banh mi).  On yesterday’s visit I went with the intentions of trying one of their new burritos.  And let me stop you right there– burritos are not just bigger tacos.

Blown Away by The Peached Tortilla

Three months ago I had my first experience with The Peached Tortilla.  At the time I was beyond impressed with the BBQ Brisket slider, so-so on the Chicken Satay taco, and undecided on the Banh Mi taco.  Shortly after my first visit, Ev and I checked them out again when the truck visited our hood for the Flying Saucer Beer Festival.  The food itself is reason enough to keep you coming back, but that’s not what blew me away this time.
