I caught up with the Taco Party food truck today at Dewey Park near the Federal Reserve. I’m not sure why their Yelp listing is for both the truck itself and for the restaurant on Broadway in Somerville – usually these are separate.
Freezing cold today on the Greenway, but Taco Party was serving up a variety of tacos today. The board mounted on the truck included “Crispy Fried Tofu,” “Chimichurri Tempeh,” “Chorizo Seitan,” “Sweet Potato” and “Lentils Al Pastor.” Tacos are $4 each or go for the $10 meal which includes two tacos and a side (chips and pinto dip or rice & beans). I’m not completely sure, but I think all of the above is vegan.
I chose the meal, one taco with the “chorizo” and the other the “sweet potato” tacos. Carrying them back to eat, they were still warm when I opened the box and they were definitely delicious. I’ve never had a “sweet potato” taco before but this was delicious. Fried sweet potato slices with red cabbage and crema. All the flavors came through and there was a good crunch. Yum!
Definitely a high carb option here. About an hour after lunch, I needed a 30 minute nap. Yowza.
