Photos | Taco Truck Taste Test #3

Aug 22, 2009 | A light shower fell while orders were placed at the third TheDailyCity.com-produced Taco Truck Taste Test (what is this?), but by the time everyone was seated (this Taco Truck provided a table under a tent! Nice!) the rain had stopped and cooled the air. The Authentic Mexican dollar tacos and quesadillas were itty-bitty but delicious. Several people got seconds.

Taco Wednesdays | Ethos

Yesterday I got introduced to "Taco Wednesday" at Ethos Vegan Kitchen. Three tacos for $7 with no sides (rice and beans maybe?) isn't the most value-riffic deal, but the vegetarian food lovers I was with LOVED the damn things and wouldn't quit scootin their loud wooden chairs across the loud stone floor about them. VeganDogs on Twitter has this to say about them:

"This is the shit!! fkn tacos!"

I didn't get to try them because (a) I didn't know I was going to Taco Wednesday ahead of time and (b) I'd already eaten one of my favorite deals in this city: the $4.50 SoDo Super-Target salad. So I ate two chocolate chip cookies made in their vegan kitchen and a cup of coffee with all the non-dairy creamer and not-Splenda topins you can guzzle.

One thing I love about their coffee is the way they serve it: in a cup AND saucer, with a napkin placed under the cup. White-chunky-old-fashioned-charming.

So if you love the moo moos but don't want to eat them, but do want to eat taco, go to Ethos Wednesdays.

I spoke to the owner and she does not have a taco truck (yet) to take these thangs on the road, but she does have a popular vegan dog cart somewhere downtown. You probably know where it is.

Taco Truck Guide- Orlando & Central Florida

The Daily City is putting together a downloadable PDF and web-based Taco Truck Guide for Orlando, Florida. We're going to each and every taco truck in the area to taste the food, take photos and video, then creating the guide. It'll be free for everyone, but we'll probably have ads in so we make some money.

Want to be a part of the creation of this guide? Join us as we tour each location during out Taco Truck Taste Tests, open-to-the-public meet ups at each truck. We'll share the date/time and location of which truck we're "testing" and you can meet us there to try out these places with others.
