It’s been a long time has it not? Several of you have asked me why it’s taken so long to have some new reviews here on slctacos.com. Well I been way busy, mang! How busy? Well, let’s review…
- Finished up the video game Toy Story 3 for work. If you have kids (or like having fun), go check it out. It’s a great game
- Besides practically living at work finishing the game I was also accepted to graduate school. I’ll be studying Computational Linguistics at the University of Washington
- I also moved to be much closer to the taco epicenter of Salt Lake City. I’m now blocks away from the heart of the action between 800 and 900 South
- I’ve been busy hanging with sharks
So now that life is back to normal, I have several taco stand reviews already written and some great taco recipes to share with all of you. I can’t wait to get back to work as a taco journalist.
In the meantime, sometimes people ask me “Where can I find the Chow Truck to try their original tacos?”
Well, it just so happens that I know exactly where the Chow Truck will be parked on Friday night July 16th.
It will be parked directly outside the great STOLEN & ESCAPED gallery (177 E 300 S, below Frosty Darling) which will be showing 4 of my paintings including a brand new one which I have yet to post on the Electric Internet. So consider this a call to tacos. A call to art. Come on down and chow down with us.
The gallery will be open from 6pm to 9pm and the Chow Truck is planning to be there from 7pm to 9pm.
Come on my and say hello to check out some of my paintings like these :
manta ray, laser eyes : killing a building
the squid’s technique was stealth
ZEBRA BITE ATTACK!!!
I have yet to try this out myself (being somewhat impossible to do at the moment), but i have heard much chatter around twitter and on food blogs about a new taco truck appearing in parking lots around Salt Lake City and Park City, Utah.
The "Chow Truck" everyone has been talking about.
So I am not here to review this mobile dining experience, but to tell you that, YES, it does exist. That, and you can find out more information about them at their website and follow them on their twitter page to find their location.
I plan on trying everything on the menu as soon as i am back in the area and hopefully get a chance to talk to the people behind this truck as well. It looks interesting to say the least! In the meantime go out and try them yourself and let US know what YOU think of them and their menu. We’ll post your reviews here. We would love to know your experiences and what you think this adds to the street taco scene in Salt Lake. It looks like they are trying to mimic what Kogi Tacos did in LA to light a fire and create a new and trendy, hipster driven clientele.
Meanwhile, taco enthusiast Kelly is reportedly on the case and will have a first impression review of the Chow Truck. We will have it posted here shortly. I am curious what our taco enthusiasts think and we’ll see how they hold up to our beloved traditional taco stands. I am wary of a hipster douche bag over hyping so i hope i am not let down by all the chatter generated around this truck so far. It has been reported that many monocle wearing men in turtlenecks, overpriced REI gear, as well as men in girls jeans and “ironic” mustaches with key chains hanging from their belts are showing up at the seemingly long list of “hip” places to park (Twilight Lounge, REI, Eggs in the City, etc), but we will let the food speak for itself and hopefully get an interview with the owners.
Until then, eat everything like it’s a taco.
