Pam's Pic: Flavorful and Filling Alambres at Tacos Los Jarochos on Summer Avenue



The new Tacos Los Jarochos food truck is parked at the corner of Mendenhall and Summer.

When Tacos Los Jarochos upgraded to a fancy new truck about six months ago, I was afraid that their authentic and delicious street food might suffer. No worries there. The truck’s warm and satisfying alambre is one of the best lunches I’ve eaten this year. Alambres are like fajitas, only better.

 

Like all of the food at Los Jarochos, alambres are made to order and well worth a few-minute wait. To make them, cooks pile fresh ingredients on flour tortillas, including shrimp or steak, sliced onions, yellow peppers and cilantro. A generous cover of melted cheese sits on top ready to greet whatever garnishes you decide to pluck from the truck’s assortment of containers. I went with a squeeze of fresh lime, avocado sauce and a few fresh radishes.

 

While I miss the simple charm of Los Jarochos’ original taco truck, this colorful new version is easy to find, spacious and promises to stick around. It is parked in the lot of Titlemax on the northeast corner of Mendenhall and Summer every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from about 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. There is plenty of parking and customers can sit at outdoor tables when the weather is nice.
