I can't speak for other food writers, but at least a few times a month, I eat two lunches in a day. Friday was one of them. Hey, if you want to be thin, you choose a different line of work.
Anyway, the Scene food bloggers had a lunch date for later, scheming our magically bewitching and funny coverage, and generally planning a takeover of the world as we in the liberal media are well-known to do. So I had to be at the front of the line when the Mas Tacos Por Favor truck brought its much-admired fare to the newspaper's parking lot. I tried all three of the tacos del dia: a spicy fish taco, a really spicy chicken taco and a vegan quinoa-and-potato. Hot and freshly made, each had its own appealing flavor profile. It's easy to see why the van draws the late-night bar crowd.
Fresh food takes time, and the line grew as noon approached. Here's a snap shot of the good-looking queue that had formed by the time we left for my second lunch.
The wagon's Twitter feed (mas_tacos) reports that they'll be parking in the Gulch the first Friday of each month this summer. Mark July 3 and August 7 on the calendar so you don't accidentally schedule something for that day, unless you want to eat two lunches.
