Taco Truck Tour, April 25th

We’ve encountered gargantuan Tlayudas, succulent Pollo Al Carbon, and the delicious and unique flavors of parts of animals we never knew existed. Cincinnati looks upon these offerings with envy, while Cleveland says, “yeah, we’ll take some of that.” and Japan – well, we have no idea what they actually think of it all (our Japanese is a bit rusty…) but we seem to have caught their attention for some reason or another…

In short, we’ve come to believe that Columbus has something special in it’s taco truck offering, and this is an offering we’d like to share with you – so it is with much enthusiasm (and a little sense of trepidation) we announce our first taco tour.

We intend for this to be an informal event.  The tacotruckscolumbus team Hungry Woolf, Taco Drew and CMH Gourmand will of course be on hand for suggestions and with a basic itinerary in mind, but our main goal is to land a group of interested folks in an ideal location that allows for easy access to the west side’s taco truck offerings (an east side tour is in the works).

We encourage anyone with interest to meet us on April 25th, 1:30pm at the Ohio Thrift parking lot near the Taqueria Little Mexico truck.  This truck’s offerings will provide an excellent overview of the basics of taco truck cuisine, and the more than ample parking lot should allow for carpooling to subsequent trucks if so desired. 

You will be free to go at your own pace, deviate off the route and to join us for as long (or short) as you would like. There are plenty more trucks in the area for those who can’t get enough or don’t want to wait in line. Save some room for some of Lydia’s excellent Postino style Pollo Carbon at the final stop, or take some home with you. We envisage the ‘full’ tour taking up to 4 hours. 

It would be great for us to have an idea of numbers so we can forewarn the trucks owners.
If you have questions, please post them in the comments section, in case someone else has the same question.

    Some friends of mine did a short taco truck tour with a field trip to Greenlawn Cemetary thrown in there.

    Anyone interested in coming up with a modified version to be completed by bicycle?

  6. Mary and Zach (Columbus Foodcast) may be biking from Truck to Truck if weather permits, they are doing a recon mission this weekend to plot out potential routes.

    ¡Viva Columbus! I wish I could be there. Cheers.

  8. nancita is officially envious – and inspired – not to mention famished! i don’t think we have the trucks in jacksonville, fl but we do have some great mexican restaurants in all corners of town – and i’m currently on a mission to seek them out. hats (or sombreros) off to you, fellow foodistas.

  9. This page is such a great idea. I am pumped. I put a link to your page on my blog. Long live the taco trucks!

  10. I’ve been to Super Torta II, but the other three will be new to me. I am super excited to be there.

    Thank you so much for organizing this! You’re awesome.

    Wow, great times, great food. So thankful to the organizers… I never would have visited these places on my own. Definitely appreciated the food recommendations too. The tiayudas and esquites were great at Super Torta and good to veer away from typical tacos. The coco (coconut) and nut (pecan) ice cream was a good ending at Las Delicias. Yes, I failed to step up to the pollo al carbon… next time! Thanks so much!

  12. Props to everyone involved in putting this together! We had a lot of fun doing this today! 😀

    I had a blast and wish I had the gastronomical intestinal to hit them all. Los Potosinos won!

  14. Great post! Just wanted to let you know you have a new subscriber- me!
