Taco-ing Up a Storm

It didn’t occur to me to check the weather this morning. If I had, I’m told I would have known that it would be pouring for most of the day. Thankfully, I’m not the only one that puts their faith in the mostly sunny days of Austin. When Adam and I unloaded our bikes, pumped up the tires, and arrived at Porfirio’s Tacos in East Austin this morning at 11, there were at least 30 people already there — eating, hanging out, and ready to tour!
Adam adds green salsa to …

You guys would have giggled if you had seen me using my broken Spanish to communicate to some of the people at the stops for Saturday. Muchos personas van a comer tacos aqui en Sabado.

Dudes Love Taco Trucks

The other night I had the unique pleasure of joining Mando from Taco Journalism, David the Soup Peddler, Logan from Boots in the Oven, Food Touring guest blogger Tom, Food Touring muse Adam, and Mando’s adorable wife Ixchel for a South Austin taco tour.
We were supposed to meet at 6:30 p.m. at the gordita/taco truck that parks just west of Thornton on Oltorf. Adam and I were a little late getting there and we received a dejected call from David telling us the truck was not there even though it’s …

Thanks to Addie Broyles for sharing links to two great blog items.
One is gorgeous taco photography from Taco Deli, one of the best places to get a delicious gringofied taco lunch in Austin. While perusing the blog, called Taco Town, I saw that Food Touring is linked on their sidebar under the heading “Food Porn.” I’m not sure what that means but I’m certain I like it!
