High Flying Truck Fare

Brian Freedman declares Guapos Tacos to be worth the wait at Love Park.

Perhaps nothing embodies what works so well at Guapos as the esquites and the ?tamales. The former is a play on one of Mexico’s greatest street snacks. And while the corn kernels were a bit wet, they proved to be a spectacular base for the spicy Russian-ish dressing and shredded queso. As for the tamale, it’s built on a base of masa-dough that resembles a roasted sweet potato’s meat, and features a mole poblano of remarkable restraint and posture-straightening deliciousness.
