Yesterday a group of This Landers decided to go for some truck lunch.
Tacos Fiesta Mexicana is (dangerously) close to our offices at 12th and Peoria. We can practically smell the tortas, the burritos, the steak taco[']s from our front porch.
Don’t even talk to me with your Taco Bell. That right there? That’s for real.
Especially if you’ve never done it, everyone reading this should try eating lunch or dinner from a truck sometime. Be sure to take some cash when you do, but don’t worry about bringing the whole bank—my lunch of three tacos at TFM was about four bucks. Food trucks are cool because it allows restaurant entrepreneurs a chance to get into the business without having to risk a bunch of capital on rent and utilities for a bunch of brick and mortar. Plus, it’s fun and easy to be a food truck customer. Just ask any of the people crowded around the hot dog carts in the Blue Dome District on a Saturday night. Just grab your food, dive into it while you enjoy the weather and the company of your friends, then belly right back up to the bar. And of course, nothing tastes better after a few beers than food from a truck or a cart. Carbs + alcohol + animal fat = yay.
Plus, the candid, mid-chew photos are excellent with taco truck food.
And now I’ll post a highly unflattering mid-chew photo of myself.
You know. To be fair. I’m all about fairness. Fairness and I are like this.
Hey, I’m not dumb. I know that my 29th birthday cake will probably feature this photo somehow.
In fact, I don’t expect it. I demand it. None of you fight over the eyes-rolled-back-into-my-head piece, now.
One more thing: When you find the taco truck, don’t be afraid to try the beef cheek. It’s delightful.
