cheap eats

Desperately seeking food trucks

I made my own - but now I have Super Taqueria! One of the things I so desperately miss about living in Brooklyn are food trucks. Simple, fresh food trucks.

Sure, I love the gourmet wagons.  What's not to love about Van Leeuwen's artisanal ice cream or Wafels& Dinges - except the cost? 

But what I really miss are the ladies who roll their carts loaded with hot homemade tamales. And the taco trucks.
Since Durham's Latino population is larger than the state percentage by double, you wouldn't think I'd have trouble finding my comida.

Okay, I'm slow. I like to take my time about stuff - at least some stuff.

So, after driving past Super Taqueria (2842 N Roxboro St, Durham, NC 27704) about a bazillion times this past year, I finally stopped in. Good things are definitely worth the wait.

One word: fresh. Make that two words: flavorful. Did I mention cheap eats?

Get the tacos de pastor and have fun with the salsa bar (although it reminds me of oddly enough of a 70s salad bar - not its offerings, just the set-up).

For those who enjoy a venture into the brave unknown, there are tacos stuffed with variety meats - lengua (tongue) and tripa (tripe).
