More food trucks! Popular Mexican restaurant Border Grill has joined in the rising food truck scene. I haven’t been to Border Grill before (only been to one of the owners’ other place: Street). My coworkers who live at the west side like the place but said it’s way too crowded all the time so they don’t go there anymore. Seems like the truck is a good opportunity for me to try their tacos.
Yucatan Pork Taco – braised achiote pork, black beans, pickled onion, orange jicama slaw $2.50
At first I was a bit surprise to find out the price is only for one taco. It was a very delicious taco indeed, the pork was good and the orange was a nice touch.
Carne Asada Taco -caramelized onion, salsa fresca, guacamole. My coworker found it so-so. The guacamole was delicious though.
I also got Crispy Baja Fish Taco (not in picture) – chipotle honey, creamy salsa fresca which I like a lot too. Both cost $3 each.
Even though I enjoyed the food a lot, I felt that it’s quite a pricey meal for a food truck. Their price is definitely one of the highest so far, and unlike other trucks they also charge tax. I was caught off guard a bit as I had just enough cash for the price listed, so that’s something to beware of.
