This morning, on my way to work, I got stuck behind a taco truck. You know, this is one of those trucks that drive around town delivering hot, scrumptious, authentic Mexican food, mainly tacos and burritos, to a very loyal crowd of devotees.
I hate following trucks. I usually pull all kinds of illegal and unsafe maneuvers in order to get in front of different trucks. But today, I was mesmerized by the smells coming from this truck, through my air conditioning, and filling my car!! It was a heavenly smell. Fresh, handmade tortillas… mmm… Had we not been on a major thoroughfare, I would have gotten ahead of the truck and flagged it down. I’ve never wanted a breakfast burrito so badly in my entire life!
But for reals, what was I to do? How does one actually go about getting food out of these trucks? Do you just follow them until they stop? Certainly they must stop somewhere.. but where?
It’s a mystery.
