The 13th Taco
Originally reviewed by Greg Cox on 6/16/2016
Never miss a local story.
The food truck lives up to its motto – “Everything fits in a tortilla!” – with inventive riffs on taqueria-style tacos, served three to an order on locally made tortillas. For now, the selection runs to just five variations on the theme, but covers a wide spectrum of flavors from Porky (smoked pork belly topped with a dark, complex salsa prieta, tart apple pico de gallo and sesame seeds on soft corn tortillas) to Vegged Out (grilled seasonal local vegetables and mole oil on flour tortillas).
We ordered the Moo Moo, which Marilyn Peraza-Arce said had already become the best-seller. We enthusiastically joined the growing fan club for this one, which piles on the marinated grilled skirt steak, thick-cut smoky bacon, fire-roasted onion, zippy salsa roja and crumbled queso with such a generous hand you’ll need extra napkins.
