We’ve encountered gargantuan Tlayudas, succulent Pollo Al Carbon, and the delicious and unique flavors of parts of animals we never knew existed. Cincinnati looks upon these offerings with envy, while Cleveland says, “yeah, we’ll take some of that.” and Japan – well, we have no idea what they actually think of it all (our Japanese is a bit rusty…) but we seem to have caught their attention for some reason or another…
In short, we’ve come to believe that Columbus has something special in it’s taco truck offering, and this is an offering we’d like to share with you – so it is with much enthusiasm (and a little sense of trepidation) we announce our first taco tour.
We intend for this to be an informal event. The tacotruckscolumbus team Hungry Woolf, Taco Drew and CMH Gourmand will of course be on hand for suggestions and with a basic itinerary in mind, but our main goal is to land a group of interested folks in an ideal location that allows for easy access to the west side’s taco truck offerings (an east side tour is in the works).
We encourage anyone with interest to meet us on April 25th, 1:30pm at the Ohio Thrift parking lot near the Taqueria Little Mexico truck. This truck’s offerings will provide an excellent overview of the basics of taco truck cuisine, and the more than ample parking lot should allow for carpooling to subsequent trucks if so desired.
You will be free to go at your own pace, deviate off the route and to join us for as long (or short) as you would like. There are plenty more trucks in the area for those who can’t get enough or don’t want to wait in line. Save some room for some of Lydia’s excellent Postino style Pollo Carbon at the final stop, or take some home with you. We envisage the ‘full’ tour taking up to 4 hours.
It would be great for us to have an idea of numbers so we can forewarn the trucks owners. Please RSVP to Hungry Woolf / Loba Hambre.
If you have questions please post them in the comments section, incase someone else has the same question.

I have my son that weekend, but may be able to come to the first spot on Sullivant. Sounds like a good lunch.

This sounds like SO much fun! I won’t be able to make the tour but would you have a recommendation for the truck with the best vegetarian offerings? (although I also eat fish, so best fish taco as well?) I am looking forward to seeking these places out over the summer! Thanks for the research!
