The Rolling Hunger's Rollin' Taco
This week I made a stop by Dirk's Coffee on Montrose, where The Rolling Hunger truck was parked. I'd seen a picture of the "Rollin' Taco" on Facebook, and it looked too delicious to pass up. And this taco, with truffle fries, pork, Korean slaw, pico de gallo, and their special Yum-Yum sauce, was a perfect and tasty blend of Korean, Mexican, and Vietnamese influences. It tastes just as good as it looks, if not better.
The first thing I noticed about this dish was just how it good it smelled. The seductive scent of truffle oil, the rich, savory aroma of cilantro -- it all aroused my senses in preparation for what came next - the taste. And every ingredient stood out. I could immediately taste the fresh cilantro, the pork was seasoned and cooked just right -- very tender and juicy -- the pico de gallo added some sweet and spicy flavorings, and those truffle fries - oh, those truffle fries! They stayed perfectly crisp, even surrounded by that creamy Yum-Yum sauce and the slightly soggy (in a good way) slaw.
How can they only charge $3.50 for this overflowing taco of deliciousness? Not that I want them to stop.
