I am visiting Tucson during the gem shows and want to experience authentic Mexican and southwestern cuisines while there. I would love to avoid anywhere crowded and trendy. Would anyone like to recommend a dining wish list? Food trucks, holes in the wall...all good!
Thanks!

    I would recommend Boca Taco y Tequilla on Speedway. Get the macho taco (grilled steak stuffed into an anaheim chile filled with melted cheese and topped with cabbage) and try the salsas. They are very creative. Banana habenero is one of my favs.

    Twisted Tandoor is a great Indian food truck.
    Bam Bam is a yummy Korean taco fusion truck.
    Aqua Con Nene is also a popular truck that I have yet to visit.

    El Guerno should be a stop for a Snoran Dog.

    Love brunch at North.
