Korean Taco Truck on Hillsborough Ave?

austinjh Feb 13, 2012 08:43 PM

I've noticed an open Korean taco truck on hillsborough near the Veteran's Expressway? Has anyone seen it? They may be related to the popular one in Orlando, I'm not sure. I am definitely going to stop by and try on the way in to work tomorrow.

    Is this truck still setting up on Hillsborough?

      I inquired about TBA food truck options on another site. One of the responders indicated that this truck is now in D.C.

      Just wanted to leave a little info for the next person who might be curious!

      Yeah, I scoped it out a little more and it's slightly west of Dale Mabry on Hillsborough across from the Guitar Center. The name on the truck is "Korean BBQ Taco Box 2" which makes me think it's associated with the one in Orlando.

        Hmm, I'll have to keep an eye out.

        I drive past that intersection daily, but I have yet to see it.

            Cool, that's right across from Machu Picchu. I'll have to see if I can catch them tomorrow afternoon.

            If I don't catch the K-taco truck , then I'll have to see if Da-Kine has opened it's new digs at the Harley dealership down on N. Dale Mabry. I'll settle for an hour of wistfully staring at motorcycles, while wolfing down a plate of moco loco.

              Yeah, I did a double-take the other day when I saw Da-Kine there!

                And unfortunately it was raining today, so I didn't get a chance to hit either...

                  BTW, while I was waiting for my Moco Loco, I spoke to the guy at Da Kine today. He said that there's going to be a small food truck rally in the parking lot of the Harley Dealership on the 7th of April.

                  He also told me they had to move from the old location on South Dale Mabry because the people who own the HoJo's next door had purchased the property, and then doubled the amount of rent they would had to pay.

                  Now I just have to get around to hitting that K-Taco truck...

              Wow, that's walkin' distance for me!
              I'll take a look as I head out... Good eyeball!

              You, not them... I don't know what's on their menu...
