There’s no denying alliteration works. How else can you explain the popularity of Taco Tuesdays?
And here are four we came across just now:
Miles Table also has a fish taco special for lunch today. Three seared tilapia tacos with sesame Thai slaw, sweet and spicy aioli, pickled onions on blue tortillas are $12.
Taco Angeleno, a new food truck based in West Philadelphia, is opening this summer. The truck debuted the Go West Craft Fest, and also had a preview picnic on on May 17 and was at Clark Park on the 18th. The truck is run by Vanessa Jerolmack, who just completed a 9-month run as a cook at Loco Pez, where she honed her knowledge of the restaurant business. The truck will serve chicken, beef, pork, eitan, soy miso, and soy-free tacos that will also be available in burrito form.
There is also a rotating daily platter special such as enchiladas, taquitos, and tamales served with rice and beans. The truck will be based at 5019 Baltimore Avenue, which will have picnic tables where you can enjoy your tacos. If all goes well, Jerolmack plans on opening a shack on the Baltimore Ave. site that can house a full kitchen and some counter seating.
Look for the taco cart on Baltimore Avenue or at festivals throughout the summer. And you can check out a much longer profile on Jerolmack and her new truck over at West Philly Local.
