Why Not Taco Trucks?

Taco trucks in West Bloomfield. YES.

We haven't had great Mexican food since my friend Ramone closed his restaurant up the road from me.  And his son's restaurant in Royal Oak is too far to go for lunch:  Detroit Taco

I can find Middle Eastern food on every corner.  But hummus and baba ghanoush cannot satisfy a craving for tacos.  And Taco Bell just is not my cup of tea.

So, Mr. G.  what is wrong with taco trucks.  HUH????  If the Mexicans can mow the park behind my house and most of my neighbor's lawns, I say, 'Let us eat tacos'.

This from the woman who is making Moroccan lamb burgers, Greek salad and Indian naan bread for the holiday.

  4. I would love a taco truck, if only the City of Binghamton would permit them. They don't permit food trucks, period, a rant for one of these days. But wait, I'm getting off topic...Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

    1. Ah. The local gov't here allowed the first drive-through a few years ago. They called it an 'upscale' Tim Horton's. Like we are so upscale we never go to McDonald's. I was always against the prohibition, but then I never considered myself too 'upscale'. I am guessing we do not allow food trucks since I've never seen one. I do know that someone complained about a local deli doing door-to-door food sales at lunch time.

  5. Taco Bell is our favorite. We do have some authentic Mexican restaurants here in Hutchinson yet we still prefer Taco Bell!!

    1. I do eat there on very rare occasions since I rarely choose fast-food.

  6. Why not Taco trucks? Toronto has many such food vendors and I bet they would be popular. We don't have any here in the suburbs, but we did have a Taco Bell for about 20 years. It closed recently and I always avoided going there. Too many stories about the poor quality of their ingredients.

    Sounds like you have a real flair for international cuisine. Bon appetit!

  7. My husband was craving one of those authentic tacos that you can only get from a truck. We have a TON of Mexican restaurants that claim to be authentic--but as someone on Facebook put it, "I want REAL Mexican food, not 'Americans who want $2 margaritas and chips and salsa' Mexican food." So we went to a couple of those small places that aren't really trucks but supposedly had the authentic stuff. They had nowhere to sit...we didn't want to-go, so we went somewhere else. That's the problem...I haven't really found Mexican food holds up well during the 10-minute drive home. It gets lukewarm and not as good...but I guess you're supposed to eat it in the car or parking lot?

    1. I am not a fan of take-out, unless it is pizza. And I want real Mexican food too.

  8. If you want Mexican food and lots of taco trucks then Los Angeles is the place for you. We've got so many Mexican restaurants that I don't know they can all survive. Of course we've got just about any restaurant type that a hungry person could want, but Mexican food certainly beats all other types.

  9. Yes to taco trucks! Living in San Diego as I do, great Mexican food is never too far away. It's funny that Mr. G. said it like it was a bad thing...

  10. You might not believe me, but I can honestly say I’ve never eaten tacos. Your holiday menu, however, sounds delicious. I’m going to make a chicken curry for tea, just so I have an excuse to eat Naan bread, and it is all down to you.
    Thanks for visiting my blog today and for leaving a comment on Stephanie’s post. Barbara

    1. I love chicken curry and also use it as an excuse to eat naan bread. As if I needed an excuse. If it wasn't so hot here I would bake my own.

  11. I make tacos all the time, come on over! But I don't know if we have the real authentic kind here. We have lots of Mexican restaurants and food trucks, but I wonder how "real" they are.

    That was the most bizarre political statement ever! What was he thinking?

    1. Nobody 'thinks' anymore. That is so 'old school'.
