Tacos and their beautification program. Is there nothing they can't do?

I would live a taquero on the corner. Someone could clean up running one of those in the neighborhood here.

Of course it being Sacramento County I'm sure it's illegal or some shiat.

I agree with this assertion 100%.

Sadly not where I work. But along where I live, yes!

Will the taco trucks be able to live side by side with the halal carts?

at the end of that there are still no taco trucks in SLC, Utah, that makes me sad.  But I guess making a bunch of Mormons sad is for the greater good.

The community frowns on these private enterprise based solutions. No government agency planned this or forced it on an unwilling public so it can't possibly work.

I'm a thirty minute walk to the nearest taco place. It's a Taco Bell. But if I walk another ten minutes I can upgrade to Taco Tico.

Also the solution to the "food desert" problem is not subsidized supermarkets in poor neighborhoods. The solution is legalizing the sale of vegetables on the sidewalk, or from the back of a truck.

St Louis used to have tamale carts there were run by disabled WW2 vets. They were cheap, tasty, and let the guys earn a dignified living so of course the city has to shut them down.

It wouldn't surprise me if the city raised the permit fees for the taco truck so high that they'd go out of business.

Did you ever wonder why kids sell drugs on the street in America, even though it is dangerous and doesn't pay well? It's because it is illegal to sell anything, so high margin products are the only thing that makes sense.

Legalize street vending and they would sell legal stuff.

You probably just need a license that costs $30k, a number they arrived at after discovering the median profit for a food truck in the city centre is $35k.

Dude, Los Andes...

My wife and I went there for our anniversary the year before the pandemic. Omg, the steak *drool* rarer than I prefer but so goddamn good I didn't care.

Providence has some great food places. Even Woonsocket has some hidden gems

This stumbles in to the fact that we drastically need better zoning and city planning. Small businesses, homes, apartments, schools, grocery stores. We've separated all these things out. You drive to school, drive home, drive to the store, drive home, drive to get groceries, drive home. It's more efficient to build large stores you need to drive to, or larger schools, etc and then build housing in huge blocks, buts it's not more efficient to live in. You ironically live in a residential area where you live closer to more people but since you have to leave to do anything else you don't actually get to know your neighbors. We need to be building more actual neighborhoods. More local pubs where you meet your neighbors, local barbershops, local corner stores. Even moreso now that we're seeing a shift towards remote work.

Are they ever really happy? I mean, inside, deep down inside. No one can be that positive all the time.*

Our closest taco truck is almost two miles away. This in a city that's 22.6% Hispanic. On the other hand, we do have La Margarita downtown.

I just ate tacos... chicken, slaw, habanero & pumpkin seed salsa.
not from a truck on the corner, sadly, but a nice man brought them on a bike, from Brixton.

We are the world
We are the taco trucks
We are the halal trucks and knish carts, so let's start cooking
There's a choice we're making
Should we get eggrolls or shrimp?
It's true we'll make a better day, don't forget the fries.
 
2022-07-06 9:27:44 AM  
I have to drive 6 miles to the nearest taco truck. Gig Harbor has made it nearly impossible for any kind of food truck to do business here because of the way they do permits. There's another one that's 14 miles away in Port Orchard but it's worth it because it's the best around. Dos tacos de lengua y dos tacos de carnitas, por favor. Tengo hambre.

There was an attempt at wit in that post? If so, it landed in another state than mine. And stop poking my apathy nerve it's annoying.
