The 8th Taste is owned by a Colombian couple who have lived in Columbus for 8 + years.. They do serve tacos but the food offered is a mixture of Colombian dishes and western targeted items.
I wouldn’t go out of my way for the tacos which are a choice of beef or chicken and served in a platter and (to us at least) American style.
However, I would go a long way for some of their empanadas. These were filled with a tasty mix of chicken, potato and vegetables and were reminiscent of an Indian samosa. Straight from the fryer, they were hot and crispy and irresistible.
Also popular with our tasting team were the arepas. I hadn’t had them anywhere else in Columbus other than El Arepazo the popular downtown Venezuelan restaurant. We ordered two, a cheese and a beef arepa and opinions varied as to the favorite. Both were good with the hot sauce, which looked a lot more lethal than it actually was.
Drinks wise the truck has a range of pepsi products and Jarritos mexican sodas. Located at a busy street 8th Taste isn’t the kind of truck you linger at while you enjoy your food. Definitely more suited to take out or eat and run.
Thanks to Joe A for the tip off about this taco truck.
