The first thing I noticed was the size of the tacos. Then the julienned onions and carrots, then the slice of cucumber laid across the shell. They were so pretty I almost didn’t want to eat them. But back to the size. These are not huge tacos but by gourmet taco truck standards they are massive and by massive I mean a regular size taco. Don’t get me wrong I am a fan of the whole nouveau truck scene as much as the next guy, especially if that next guy is Aziz Ansari (he‘s hilarious). But if I have one complaint with them it is sometimes the portions are small. And by sometimes I mean most of the time. So when I got my food from Nom Nom and found these two hefty bad boys on my lap I was so excited I almost emptied a whole bottle of sriracha on them.
Did the excitement come to a crashing end once your humble taco correspondent bit into the massive tacos on my lap? And by massive I mean regular sized! No! I only became more excited! And by more excited I really mean more excited. Yes Nom Nom , you had me at first bite. Or maybe it was the cucumber that seduced me , its subtle hints of what was to come. It lay there like a ribbon on a birthday present across the shell of the taco like a centerfold. I wanted to pull you off Mr cucumber but you pleaded to be devoured together with your taco brethren. Of course I accepted your surrender and saluted your martyrdom. It was the least I could do.
The first to go down was the lemongrass which was so beautifully delicious I only wondered what took me so long to track you down Nom Nom. Maybe I was afraid I would be eatin by the little nom nom animal? No that can’t be it! Could it? I hope not! The bbq pork was next and as delicious as it was it can only play second fiddle to my new BFF the lemongrass chicken taco. Oh lemongrass taco you have won my loyalty - my belly cries out for you. I fear now that no other chicken taco will do. Until we meet again. nom nom nom nom nom .
