The Story: It takes a strength and courage to launch a food cart. It takes even more to set up shop alone without the support of a food cart pod or neighbor carts. Adamariz Taqueria has that drive.
Located on N Killingsworth just west of Vancouver, the spot has hosted a few short lived vendors in the past, but when I walked by the other day, the owner of the truck was out there on the sidewalk personally waving at passers-by, welcoming them to his new location. The truck is so new, they haven’t had the time to rebrand it with their own name, but trust me, this is Adamariz Taqueria. Tacos, tortas, quesadillas and burritos are the options here at the cart. What sucked me in was the options for fillings. Lengua, Cabeza, Chorizo along with the traditional chicken, pork and steak. Sadly, the day I visited they had already sold out of lengua, so I picked up cabeza, chorizo and asada. Cabeza, beef head, may turn people off, but for me, it comes through as fatty, creamy and salty – just what I want on a tortilla with some cilantro and chopped onions. All three tacos filled me up on my walk home. Why can’t more satisfying food be only $1.50 a piece?
I’m excited to have a new taqueria within walking distance of where I live and they are open into the dinner hours. Good Mexican at a good price. Drop on by and let them know Food Carts Portland sent ya.
