Photos: Taco Truck Taste Test #1

The rain cleared up just as the first-ever Taco Truck Taste Test (TTTT #1) at 6pm on the side of the road on Semoran Blvd. Blog readers/taco truck fans meandered over to the truck from wherever they could find parking (two people had to move their car, including me) and everyone got a mini-program with a history of taco trucks, the menu for this specific taco truck in English and a fun vinyl sticker.

The general consensus, if I could be so bold, was that it was fun. Here we were, a bunch of car-bound Orlando drivers standing inches from a busy road, chomping down on authentic non-chain food made by a super-nice dude inside his truck, talking and laughing, enjoying a brief respite from the air conditoned, interior-dwelling city we live in.

Two kids and their parents showed up. I don't know what the kids thought, but the parents seemed to have fun.

Visual artist Thomas Thorspecken is releasing his sketch of the event this Thursday on his blog.

I keep getting emails asking me when the next #TTTT will be. I have a list of taco trucks to check out. Once I find the perfect one for the next taste test, you will know about it here. For now, please share the link to this story any way you can with your friends: twitter, facebook, email, etc and get the #TTTT interest going.

Thanks!
