L and I got up this morning and decided to head down to the Farmers’ Market.  We didn’t find what we were looking for….or much of anything really, but I didn’t want to waste the trip out.  Pizza Vera was out at the market as was Papa’s and a place serving up tacos, but just down the street is another food truck that came highly recommended.

Now I’m not really sure on the name, but I’m going with what I saw on the t-shirts the employees were wearing and the newest looking sign.  I believe the name of the joint is Taqueria Los Brother’s (or Los Brother’s Mexican Food…saw it written both ways).  There’s also some older signage and I’ve seen it other places called Taqueria Fiesta Mexicana.

Whatever you call, the little food truck is parked in an empty lot just to the south of Portage Street and Bryant Street in Kalamazoo’s Edison Neighborhood.  The truck appears to be an old party bus that has been modified.  They have a pop up tent just in front of the order window to keep you out of the elements while placing an order.

The menu is pretty small and what you’d expect from a Taqueria.  I ordered four Asada tacos without the onions.  It took about five minutes for the tortillas to be warmed and the steak and cilantro to be piled in.  The cost was exactly seven bucks and I was handed a small container of green hot sauce to go with the tacos on my way out.  There is no place to eat on site, so everything has to be taken somewhere else.  I guess I could have just dropped the tailgate on my truck and went at it that way, but L was getting impatient and wanted to get home. 

After getting L settled in to her high chair with something to eat, I cracked open box to find steamy, delicious smelling tacos.  Each one was a double layer of corn tortilla and overfilled with delicious, tender steak and a whole lot of cilantro.  I put a little bit of the hot sauce on each one of the four tacos, but green chile hot sauces aren’t really my favorite.  Still, it was tasty even if it wasn’t quite my thing.

I gush a lot about a little taqueria in Grand Rapids that I eat almost once a week.  This place almost ranks up with that place, but it’s still an incredibly delicious, authentic little food truck with fresh home made Mexican food.  What’s not to like about that?
