We’ve been taco trucking enough that we can recognize ‘recycled’ trucks, even when they’ve been repainted. El Nopal is the formerly pink Mi Chula, a much missed Mexican seafood kitchen. As an added curiosity, the menu board is from the old Otro Rollo truck, which was briefly known as El Milagro. I doubt this will be the last we’ll see of it.
Given the heritage of the menu board it’s not too surprising that it doesn’t relate terribly closely to what is on offer (or at least what was on offer during our visit). The pictures on the other side of the truck seemed the truer guide: tacos, huaraches, tortas and hamburguesas as well as (pictured below) sopes and gorditas. Burritos and quesadillas are likely as well.
The meat options were limited on our visit (chicken, steak, lengua, pork), but they do have a small al pastor spit that we’re told will be used on weekends.
The truck resides in the parking lot of its parent restaurant of the same name.
