Seattle – Taco Libre

Pre-Cinco de Mayo party that had 25 trucks competing for the best taco, I did my best to eat all and went to seven trucks that had the most interesting offerings and tried eight different tacos. Presented in order of favorite to least favorite.

The octopus taco was very popular, they had sold out by 1 and the event goes until 6. The octopus was very tender and the flavors worked well together.

Food coma setting in now…
