Taco Cleanse Addendum – vegan tacos at Chi’lantro

These days it seems like ramen joints are popping up like mushrooms after a rainstorm but a couple years back it was all about the Korean Taco fusion trailers. Only one stood the test of time, and for good reason. Chi’lantro might be the best run food truck – or really fleet of food trucks – in the city. They are completely on it with social media telling you on twitter where they have moved too, and the mobile trucks always seems to be exactly where I want them to be when I’m looking for food at 2am after the bars close downtown.

These tiny tacos of deep fried tofu, soy vinaigrette Korean salad, cilantro, onion, and their special salsa are the ideal late night food. Everything comes together perfectly and the sweet sauce covering the salad is just delicious. And they are only a couple of dollars! The service at the trailer runs with more efficiency than, I’d say, ANYWHERE else at 2 am. I promise you will have a better experience than at Taco Bell or Kerbey Lane. The only thing I don’t like is that their Kimchi isn’t vegan and neither is their magic sauce so I can’t partake in what I’m sure are amazing Kimchi fries. I want them every time. Oh well, I’m still always happy with two tacos in my belly for the ride home at the end of the night.

    Everyone else is basking in the afterglow of Vegan Mofo and you go and do this. You, Lazy Smurf, are an OVERACHIEVER! And thank goodness because while I’m glad I don’t have to write everyday, I’m really missing reading everyday. Post, you lazy masses!

    P.S. WTF do you have to do to kimchi to make it non-vegan? Send ’em to TJ’s; their kimchi is vegan and delicious and you don’t have to do anything but put it on a plate. Hell, you could just stick a fork in the bag if you want, just don’t spear the freshness pack.

      I’ve got a backlog so this might go on for days! As far as chi’lantro I think the my guess on the nonveganess of the kimchi is fish sauce. Boo.
