‘Tapatio’ is a nickname for people from Guadalajara, and unsurprisingly so are the owners of this new truck. They have only been open a couple of weeks, and on our visit they had a limited menu; the only protein offerings were pork (al pastor), chicken, and beef (asada).

A sincronizada is a cross between a ham and cheese sandwich and a quesadilla. It is two tortillas sandwiching melted cheese and ham. Here it was topped with salsa, lettuce and avocado and cut into quarters. It was a little messy to eat and to my taste under crisped.

The sope was fried to order. It was smaller than some of the other trucks but the deep frying gave it a nice crunch and it wasn’t too greasy.

We also tried some chicken tacos. Fine, but nothing special, and the tortillas were a little under done. Bear in mind, though, that the truck was pretty new when we visited – they deserve the benefit of the doubt at this point. They said that they plan to offer more meat options at the weekend including barbacoa and carnitas.

Taqueria La Fonda is a good addition to the East Side taco truck scene. It’s located on the North side of East Broad Street just east of the intersection with James.

Offerings include the standard tacos, tortas and burritos as well as tamales and crispy corn tortillas (think taquito or flauta) – either chicken or beef served with lettuce, cheese and crema. The tamales (we had red) were good – plump, light and moist.

They also have sincronizadas which are similar to a quesadilla but contains ham and cheese. Usually, in our experience, a sincronizada is made with two tortillas stacked like a sandwich but as you can see this one was one large tortilla folded.

Meat options include chicken, al pastor, chorizo, steak, barbacoa, lengua and chicharron stewed in green sauce (pictured below with a taco de lengua). Chicharron guisado is in our opinion one of the more challenging taco truck dishes.

There is a good selection of tortas with some additional meat options.
