The Taco Truck Gourmet: Mi Lindo Huetamo #2

This stately white and stainless steel-clad taco truck can be found at the corner of Hillcroft and Jessamine on the same block as Droubi’s Middle Eastern grocery and bakery. The cooking is top-notch and the garnishes are unusually elaborate.

Try the quesadillas al pastor, lovingly topped off with sour cream, avocado, and cilantro. You get two salsas with every order, a fiery red and a tart green, and a little foil pouch full of radishes and marinated onions.

Chef Nicolas?

”My beautiful Huetamo” is named after the town in the Tierra Caliente region of Michocan.

The truck was recently purchased by a seasoned kitchen veteran named Nicolas who has worked in Houston restaurants, including Carraba’s and Pappa’s Brothers Seafood, for the past 22 years. Nicolas decided it was time to run his own business. He says the hours are long, but he doesn’t have a boss anymore, so it's worth it. -- Robb Walsh
