My fellow foodie friend and ex co-worker, Kimberly, once told me about the ever-so-famed Mexicue food truck. As interested as I was, the thought of finding the food truck seemed fleeting, and I put it on my laundry list of “eat here.” Then Jasmine and I attended the Grub Street Food Festival, which proved to be a complete failure (imagine having to elbow your way in a crowd of 200-300 people, just to see where each stand was, let alone figure where the lines began and ended), except for the glorious Mexicue truck parked outside, a rainbow in my gloomy day of disappointment, a joy in a sea of lines and hungry/angry people (trust me, the worst combination of all). Yes, we had to wait on line for, hm, 30 minutes? But I figured the truck was there, and I didn’t want to chase it down another day, so we waited.
All I have to say is, “wait and you shall receive.”
A small glimpse into the unpleasant Saturday of disappointment. But behold the majesty which is… MEXICUE
I got the BBQ brisket slider ($3) and the oak smoked short rib taco ($4).
Jasmine got the pulled pork slider ($3) and the chorizo slider ($4).
What do you get when you combine perfectly spiced rubs with fresh toppings in joyful handheld wrapping? A 30 minute wait well-worth it. Topped off with a chilled mint tea, I finally found something worth the chaos and waiting. Well done Mexicue, well done.
