Had lunch at the El Charrito Taco Truck for 1st time today...

and it was damn good.

The chorizo tacos were slammin'! I really liked the beef tacos too. I do have to save the carnitas were a miss for me, bland and not really all that, but overall everything else was fab. I was really digging those scallion bulbs too. Oh and of course the woman (don't know her name) was super, super nice.

I'm stoked to be moving to Stamford in a couple of weeks! :D

    it must be something in the air because I made my first trip to El Charrito this week as well. It was on Tuesday - I had a carnitas taco and two of the day's specials: a cow feet tostada and a pig belly taco.

    Really loved the food overall, though I wasn't too into the pig belly meat. The other two items were delicious.

    Friday I went back for a torta and I'll probably try the Huarache next week. This place is going to be dangerous for me!

      I can't wait until day camp starts up in Greenwich. I'll have an excuse to leave Westchester and try El Charrito!

        I couldn't get over there today, which was a bummer because I saw on their facebook/twitter status that they had chorizo empanadas as a special today. That would have been good, I bet.

        Next time be sure to try the huarache too. Those are probably my favorites there.

          I love that a taco truck has a facebook/twitter status. There is something so wonderful about that! The other thing I like about El Charrito is that you can call ahead for your order. It's very user-friendly.

          I tried it for the first time this week as well, and I can't wait to go back. I went traditional and tried 3 tacos - beef, chicken and pork. I loved the beef and chicken, but didn't care for the pork - too, too fatty for my liking. I have a feeling this might become a new routine lunch spot. And yes, the woman taking my order was super nice.

            Welcome to the neighborhood.

            Let the FFD hounds know your preferences (you have some really great lunch spots from the other thread) and the hounds up here can guide you.

            Ciao
