That is how you do it, people. Never seen brisket do that, neither. Maybe it does, but I ain't seen it.

Today's lunch: tasty tacos made from pig parts, namely oreja and buche. (And one tinga, too.)
Taco trucks on every corner: yes please.

Only if the food truck markup goes away. Every food truck around here has about a 50% additional markup for what you'd get from a brick and mortar restaurant (if you went to it). I like me some food truck food, but always feel like I got kinda ripped off.

I dunno, the prices are fairly reasonable around here. (I figure that this is such a high cost-of-living area that salary, vehicle registration, regulatory compliance, etc. probably make running a food truck just as expensive as a restaurant!) The tacos cost me $2 each, and while they were pretty small, I can't see myself getting comparable tacos for any less than $1.50 anywhere else unless maybe it was a bar having Taco Tuesday night, in which case they'd just be a loss leader for beer.

Yeah, a typical food truck price here would be like $9 to $11 for 3 tacos. All the food trucks here are trying to position themselves as premium things, not as ordinary cheap things.

Yeah, instead of kickass lengua tacos for two bucks, you get tacos of slow-braised short ribs with shaved jicama in a ponzu aioli for $12, until 9PM when they switch over to only serving kiwi acai or strawberry jackfruit sorbets because the ones in normieville are following the trend that food trucks are the place for culinary experimentation!
