Authentic Mexican is something you don't get enough of in these parts, but thanks to the addition of a new mobile nom-spot, finding tacos and tortas just got a little bit easier. The Taco Truck, which first originated in Hoboken, New Jersey back in September 2009, just launched its first truck here in Boston.
Expect the standard array of protein choices for the tacos (barbacoa, carnitas, chicken, fried catfish) along with some interesting vegetarian options as well, like fried avocado. The tortas (Mexican-style sandwiches) have similar options and come standard with white onions, pickled jalapeños, avocado, crema and black bean spread. There are also plenty of side dishes, Mexican sodas and salsa options to choose from!
Committed to sustainability, The Taco Truck uses locally sourced ingredients as well as all-natural hormone free meat. Their packaging is compostable and their brick and mortar establishment in New Jersey is LEED certified. Added to the list of our favorites meals-on-wheels, you can check out their daily schedule and updates via twitter. And if you are interested in becoming part of the team, you're in luck because they're currently hiring!
