I’m a little late to the food truck scene only because there wasn’t any conveniently located close by me. Then a few started appearing in the parking lot at Hiller Aviation Museum in San Carlos and now there’s like a herd of food trucks there each Wednesday – a rotating mix of various trucks, some with veggie options, some with nothing vegan.
One of them, happens to be the Nom Nom Truck. Ever since rooting for Nom Nom on The Great Food Truck Race, I’ve been wanting to eat there. Finally, I had my chance. Asked what’s vegan, I got two vegetarian tofu tacos without the spicy aioli for six bucks.
Alarmed at first, I thought I had mistakenly gotten chicken. Upon closer examination, it was marinated tofu with a nice meaty texture. Piled into two soft tortillas and topped with pickled veggies and fresh cilantro.
If it wasn’t so windy and cold on that particular day, I would have eaten the tacos right then and there. As it was, I went home and made my own spicy aioli out of Vegenaise and Sriracha sauce (bottom photo). Nom, nom, nom!
