What are the odds? What should park outside the immaculately tended offices of SF Weekly today but Pyongyang Express, the taco truck hired ― like a motorized cable car facilitating a bachelorette booze crawl ― to drive around the city. Oh, and to give away tacos and pimp the Korean-apocalypse video game Homefront.
At 11:45 this morning, there were only three women waiting for their free lunch, served up by two guys from an eerily immaculate and sort of oddly bare truck. How were the tacos? The tofu one didn't have quite enough flavor, and the bean curd fingers were a tad spongy. But the pork ― bits of shaved shoulder in a soy- and only-slightly-spicy-bean-sauce marinade ― wasn't bad, made less bad with a thick squiggle of Kewpie mayo and a bit of kimchi, made triple less bad by being free. The truck roams San Francisco till Mar. 21. Track its whereabouts on Facebook, but really: With only two smallish tacos in you, you definitely need to make an after-plan for real sustenance.
