An episode of Ugly Delicious featuring LA tacos was dismissive of taco trucks that didn’t make their tortillas by hand. I found their comments amusing because it’s really uncommon to find handmade tortillas in taco trucks in the SFBA, right? Do any of the Oakland trucks, like the ones covered in John Birdsall’s 2016 eater guide, use handmade, or at least decent quality, tortillas?
Off the top of my head, and I’m admittedly out of touch with the food truck scene, I can think of only one:
- the Redwood City truck for Los Carnalitos, which uses fresh masa
There’s one other truck, but its mobile abilities are TBA:
The rest I can think of are Farmer’s Market predecessors/offshoots of brick and mortars. Not quite the same as taco trucks, and only once a week deals:
- El Buen Comer at the Saturday Noe Valley farmer’s market, fresh masa
- El Huarache Loco at the Saturday Alemany farmer’s market, fresh masa if I recall correctly
- Primavera at the Saturday Ferry Building Farmer’s Market, an offshoot of El Molina Central, fresh masa
What else, anything late night?
