We were headed to our favorite ice house and noticed a taco trailer was parked on the corner right under the West Alabama Ice House sign. Holy frijoles, this is the best idea since tall boys. Now we can hang out on picnic benches, drink cheap beer and, if we get hungry -- which we always do -- we can eat tacos.

Corn or flour, pork or beef, red sauce or green sauce? The tacos at Tierra Caliente are really good and fresh: full of tender meat with loads of flavor and lots of fresh onions and cilantro on top. We're pretty sure that the folks at West Alabama Ice House wouldn't let just any taco truck pull up and hand out street snacks to its loyal patrons.

This is a match made in heaven.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
