Meals on wheels

mittacos.jpg

I'm on Day 2 of a four-day food-cart eating binge for an upcoming Food section splash. Yesterday it was Downtown Crossing and the Common for dogs, burritos, wraps, slush, and lemonade, and today it was the MIT food trucks for tacos, shawarma, and pizza (the venerable Goosebeary's truck was a no-show). All of my eating, just so you know, happened in the 100-degree heat, a fact that I'm going to remember the next time someone accuses me of having a cushy job.

The winners so far are the tacos, above, that I had today from Jose's at MIT. I got one pork and one steak, and while both were excellent (with soft homemade corn tortillas, pico de gallo, and pungent salsa verde), it's the pork I'll go back for: The meat was so deeply chile-flavored it must have been stewed for hours. That's what I want in a taco.

Where are YOUR favorite food-cart eats? Go to the message board here and let me know!
