Reader: Which came first? The taco or the truck? Comida or Pinche or T|ACO?

Categories: Cafe Society

The talk continues about T|ACO, the updated taqueria with the awkward name that opened yesterday in Boulder. It's not the first hip taqueria in the area, of course. Pinche Taqueria gave the Pinche Tacos concept a permanent home last year.

And in February Comida Cantina opened a brick-and-mortar version of its Comida truck in Longmont. (Executive chef Serena Romeo is featured in this week's Chef and Tell; read it here.)

Says Christine:

Let's not forget about how much of the trail for this kind of food was blazed by Comida - both the truck, and this year, the Comida Cantina.

The real trailblazers, though, were all the Mexican storefronts and loncherias that have been tooling around Denver for decades. What's your favorite spot for street tacos? How do you like Pinche? Comida? T|ACO? Post your thoughts in the comments section below.

If we're just talking gringo-friendly street tacos paired with booze in a gringo-friendly setting, then El Camino has been doing it longer than any of the places mentioned here.


What about Pica's in Boulder?  Same concept, seemingly.

This isn't a Colorado thing - "street" tacos have been all over the foodie media for a couple of years now.  This month's Bon Appetit has a huge section on how to make these kinds of tacos (including the tortillas).  Probably some kind of mass realization that the tacos we all grew up on are crap compared to the real thing.
