At the end of every semester, I make my students at Cal State Fullerton
give their finals before an audience at the Fullerton Public Library to
prepare them for life outside the academic bubble. And we can't have a
symposium without food, you know? Last time around, I invited Barcelona On-the-Go, Piaggio's and Dos Chinos to feed the students and about 200
This time around, for
Dec. 7 this Wednesday, I'm proud to announce it'll be a wholly wab affair: Soho Taco, which recently earned its luxe lonchera wings, and the alta cocina Taco María truck.
Two taco trucks, one place? ¡Sí, señor! It's a great pairing,
actually: Not only are the Soho guys and Taco María head chef Carlos
Salgado pals, but they complement (and compliment) each other perfectly, too.
Soho concentrates on straightforward, old-school tacos but can also go
gourmet: wonderful veggie tacos, for one, and head chef Gabriel Zambrano
is promising a barbacoa de res (beef) taco paired with a salsa de
aceite, that wonderfully viscous condiment that doesn't nearly make
enough appearances in this county. Salgado, on the other hand, takes the alta
road with bone-marrow quesadillas and a stunning pumpkin taco–but he's
also preparing a salsa de chile de árbol per mine and Dave's challenge.
They'll start selling
on Dec. 7 THIS WEDNESDAY at 6 p.m. and go until 9, and the cabrones are kind enough to donate some of their pesos made that night to the Fullerton Public Library. See you there!
