Driving around the city this morning and early afternoon, I spotted a new -- to me, at least -- food truck. Tacomovil was painted across the back of the truck in big letters, so I assume that's the truck's name.
Actually, I spotted it twice: first, heading westbound on Market Street; then, half an hour later, cruising by the Wells Fargo campus at Olive Street and Jefferson Avenue. I wasn't able to snap a picture, but it's the usual food truck size, white with (some) red lettering.
A cursory search of Google, Facebook and Twitter hasn't yielded any more information (aside from a Facebook page for a "TacoMovil" in Houston).
Anyone else seen this out and about or know whether it is, in fact, new? Anyone tried it?
Update: (Wednesday, March 21, 1:30 p.m.) You guys rock.
Thanks to your comments below and on Twitter, we've learned that Tacomovil offers tacos, tortas, quesadillas and burritos, all with your choice of meat (chicken, steak or pork al pastor).
What's more, Tacomovil has a Facebook page as TacoTruckSTL. According to this page, in addition to lunch-hour stops, it has regular stops at Dante's (3221 Olive Street; 314-652-2369) every Friday and Saturday from 11 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. and at Club Viva! (408 North Euclid Avenue; 314-361-0322) every Thursday 11 p.m.-1:30 a.m.
Update #2: (Thursday, March 22, 11:25 a.m.) And Tacomovil is on Twitter, too, as @tacotruckstl.
