San Luis Tacos Is Back At Its Regular Spot

Good news for fans of good Mexican (and Ecuadorian) food from a truck – San Luis Tacos truck has been back on Front St. btw. Maiden Lane & Pine every day. They disappeared for a while, but commenter Veebee clued us in (along with the truck’s owners in the forums) that the truck was back at the end of March. They’ve stopped using their Twitter, but the truck’s been in the same spot for at least a couple of weeks. When I walked by, it seemed they’ve pared the menu back to tacos, sopas, tortas, empanadas and some Ecuadorian specialties that you’ll have to ask about.

Sampling The Mexican Side Of San Luis Taco Truck’s Menu

A couple of months ago the San Luis Taco truck (formerly called Tacos Mexicanos) rolled into the Financial District, filling a void with its Mexican and Ecuadorian food. They’ve bounced around in different spots since then but seem to have settled on parking on Front St. which is good because I think often fans of their food didn’t know where the hell they were from day to day. After my first taste of the truck’s hornado, I decided to return for something from the Mexican side of the menu and discovered that it was hard to choose when you have so many delicious options at your disposal

Being Schooled In Ecuadorian Food By Tacos Mexicanos

At first when I spotted the Taco Mexicanos truck on Maiden Lane (at Water) last week, I was excited for their tamales and tacos since I love both of those items. Then I started thinking about the fact that they had something that other places in the Financial District didn’t: Ecuadorian food. That’s right, they have hornado, encebellado, guatita and the favorite of late-night drinkers everywhere, salchipapas, aka hot dogs and french fries. After asking what all they had for the day, and what was recommended from the Equadorian offerings, I was steered in the direction of the hornado ($7) after being asked how hungry I was. Check it out in all its porky glory after the jump. Read more »

Tacos Mexicanos Added To The FiDi Truck Mix

Are you guys overwhelmed by all of the new places popping up in the Financial District lately? No? Is it just me? Anyway…this post is about the Tacos Mexicanos truck spotted Tuesday on Maiden Lane at Water St. They serve tacos (natch) and some sandwiches on top of empanadas, salchipapas, tamales and some Ecuadorian fare. A quick Web search shows there’s a truck of the same name that parks in Woodside, Queens so it might just be legit (I’d already had two lunches so there was no more room in the Downtown Lunch stomach). One of the guys on the truck said they’d either be back at the same spot today or on Water near Fulton.
