El Manantial Latino may look familiar. The original trailer has been around for over four years. This is a spin-off. It is located in an unlikely area and especially well beyond the traditional Taco Truck Territory. Located outside of I-270 on the far north side of Columbus, this trailer is buried in a series of strip malls and surrounded by plenty of food options, including a Taco Bell. The menu is the same as El Manantial (Original or Uno). We will let the menu speak for itself below.
The selections (and some of the translations) are very different from the typical Taco Truck fare. Pineapple is a common ingredient in some dishes as well as unexpected items like hot dogs and the mysterious “pink sauce”. Empanadas and Cuban sandwiches are on the menu as well.
The trailer has a couple of downsides that might be righted along the way. Not all menus items are available every day. The phone number is for the original trailer located miles away so neighbors can not effectively call in an order for pick up. The start time of 11:30 am….is a little shaky on occasion.
We wish this spin-off well and will keep tabs to see if it can sustain in this unlikely location.
