Friday Fun: Taco Town

5/01/2009:

You can never have enough tacos

Several weeks ago, we all chatted about the (now) imminent “Taco Truck” restaurant coming to Hoboken sometime soon.

That reminded me about one of the funniest Saturday Night Live commercial spoofs ever:

[quote comment=”152817″]good luck TheTacoTruck – hope it works out for you. I assume you cut back on some of the capital expenditures somewhere along the line?[/quote]

We did cut back on a few things and we have a new team together. Hopefully Hoboken411 will provide an update in about a week. We are getting very close to announcing our location and other details, including a new chef!

RE: broken

Cut back on Cap-ex? They own 2 trucks (maybe a few $1,000 in repairs per yr) and provide the food at a bar called Alibi (no cap-ex)’ and prep all the food at that kitchen earlier in the day.

They go through 300ish lbs of meat a day (offer short beef rib, pork, chicken and tofu tacos and burritos, short rib sliders among many other tasty items), serve 750 to 1,000+ people per day and the average bill is ~$12-$20. You do the math.

Don’t think they have to worry about Cap-ex.

I go 1x per week and there is always a line 10-50 deep depending on the location and time. It is a great way to meet new people (and girls).

Mmmm…how did they get our secret recipe? LOL Regarding the LA truck Kogi…it is amazing! Chef Roy cooked at La Bernardin. He and David Chang from Momofuko have really brought Korean BBQ to a whole new level.

Hey, if you can eat a steak sandwich from La Taqueria Taco Van, then you can eat that monster.

There’s a show on the Food Channel, I forget the name (Man vs Food or something). A guy travels the country and is challenged to eat the biggest burger, pizza, 64 oz steak, whatever. And he does it. Only saw one episode where he just couldn’t. This looks like a piece of cake (wrapped inside another cake of course).
