Finding good tacos can be hard but the way it is cooked and served is how it is redefined.

Street tacos are so much better than tacos Americans typically eat. Fewer sit-down restaurants serve authentic, street-style tacos, but when I’ve found ones that do, they’re as good as from a truck.

Of course this age-old question will not get settled by you posting it on a blog. Why not set out to answer it for yourself by traveling to a few places known for food trucks and seeking an epiphany?

Los Angeles has been all excited about a mobile Korean taco truck for some time now. Portland is getting famous for its “pods” of trucks that soon may even serve wine and beer. And if you go to Albuquerque, you could write a whole article just by going around asking people, “I heard there used to be a truck called Dave’s Not Here, what’s that?”

(Full disclosure: I live a few blocks from Izzoz and am a regular customer.)

Cognition #1: I am a well-known and highly respected financial journalist.

Cognition #2: I’m getting my lunch from an effin truck.

Relief of Cognitive Disequilibrium: Mmmmm, these truck tacos taste so much better than the restaurant ones.

In a restaurant, you’re usually far removed from the cooking process.

At a taco truck, you’re only a few feet away from the cooking al pastor.
