Taco Azul to open this March

Cincinnati’s newest food truck, Taco Azul, will hit the streets late this March according to owner Gary Sims. Once open for business, Taco Azul will bring a Los Angeles-style taco truck to Cincinnati with a variety authentic Mexican favorites hard to find locally.

There will be a variety of taco choices including the traditional taco pastor. In addition to tacos, Taco Azul will have burritos, quesadillas, and more traditional Mexican dishes like sopes and tortas. On the weekends Sims says that they will be serving menudo – a popular weekend soup great for hangovers. When available, Taco Azul also plans on offering ceviche and lengua. Maybe more exciting than anything else is the fact that horchata will also be on the menu.

“We are looking into no animal lard beans for our vegan friends,” said Sims who also stated that their produce will come from local farms and that their meats will be local and range free whenever possible.

Stay tuned over the coming weeks as Taco Azul works out the final details for their new truck and continue to revise their menu (through user feedback of course). Right now their Facebook Page is the best way to stay connected, but once they start rolling around Opening Day their Twitter account will probably be the best bet.
