I wasn’t sure I would find anything to eat at a food truck that specializes in seafood. I was pleasantly surprised because there were two items that I could eat. There is a vegetable burrito and a vegetable quesadilla. How about that for a choice?
Another reason I haven’t visited Tacos Acapulco before is this was previously Bonsai Asian Tacos. I loved that place. It was my very favorite food truck for a long time. Then one day it vanished. I was keeping track of Bonsai Asian Tacos through the weekly edition of the digital Fork from the Santa Fe Reporter. Eventually, we all figured out that Bonsai Asian Tacos ceased to exist. That was sad. This bright blue food truck really did cheer me up.
But I tried a vegetable burrito(10). I was glad I had the cash because this is a cash only place. As you can see from above, there were not many details to be had from the menu. So I was surprised with the delicious side salad that came with my burrito.
Tacos Acapulco had me with carrot strips on my salad. But there was more, jicama and mango. The mango was incredible. It was exactly ripe. It, too, was a surprise. I thought it was summer squash. Wow! The mango was so sweet. It was a great contrast to the jicama as well as the cucumber slices. The salad came with a wonderful dressing. I would put this on all of my vegetables except that I drenched my salad with it.
The main star of the show was of course this foil wrapped burrito. It was still warm by the time it reached home.
The burrito tortilla was that soft kind. It was so delicate and light. Wow!
This feast had another one of my favorites, black beans. As you can see Tacos Acapulco wasn’t stingy with their black beans or rice. The burrito was a good sized one, too. There were also peppers and squash included.
The tomatillo sauce packed a nice punch. Ok, I used all the sauce to smother the burrito. It had a nice kick to it. The tomatillo sauce just added to the flavor. Yes, it was a flavor enhancer. The other small plastic container had enough sour cream to put on top and have some extra.
We also bought a Shrimp(Camaron) Quesadilla (10). This dish was also a good sized portion with plenty of very tasty shrimp. It, too, had the delicious mango, jicama,and carrot salad.
I was impressed that even though we only had two entrees. Our Styrofoam boxes were labeled.
The owner, Julio Rodriquez was delightful as well. I got to brush up on some of my limited Spanish. The food needs no translation. It is first class.
I’m not sure what the hours are but I think they are open 10am to 7pm. I read on Google Maps that it was open everyday. I’d call first. Taco Acapulco is located at 1599 St. Francis. Their phone number is 505.316.6573. Yum!! We were very impressed and will return.
