Partner and I just had a bite at Tako Truk, the new streetside offering in Eastlake that’s furthering the street food meme currently captivating Seattle. NW corner of Eastlake & Lynn, next to the Zoo.
It’s very good. We’ll be back. Fresh flavorful ingredients. Good char on the grilled items. Fun, inventive combinations in fresh, tiny tortillas.
http://www.takotruk.com/ They’ll tweet you the menu and when they run out if you like.
The name is playful. Very decidedly not Mexican tacos — tonight’s fillings included pork belly & lentil, octopus, sweet yam & black bean, chicken & slaw & microfries. Also not in a truck — they borrow 13 Carrot Cafe’s kitchen during the evening when it’s closed, and you sit outside.
$5 gets you 2 or 3 tacos, depending on the ingredients — each about two good bites.
It’s a nice adjunct to the Zoo next door. With that and Louisa’s new evening hours, dinner in Eastlake is getting more options. Yea!
