As we told you last week, The Taco Truck just opened a kiosk at the High Line, and we stopped recently to check it out.
Last year the High Line had a few stands, but this year, they really increased the number of vendors. Within 2 blocks of the 16th St entrance, we saw L’Arte De Gelato, People’s Pops, Blue Bottle Coffee, Bark Hot Dogs, Melt Bakery Ice Cream Sandwiches and Terroir on the Porch. We understand Northern Spy Food Co and La Newyorkina Paletas are there as well.
But we were there for The Taco Truck, the 2011 Vendy-Award winners for Best of NJ, who have been very busy. In addition to opening a small storefront in Hoboken last year, just last month they opened a 2nd truck in the Boston area, and now the brand-new kiosk at the High Line.
The menu is similar to their other locations with tacos, tortas and a few other goodies. Protein options are pork, beef, chicken and veggies, but there’s much more to it than that.
We ordered tacos – Barbacoa de Costilla and Carnitas Michoacan, which were $5.50 each.
