Eat This Now: Taco Party’s Fried Potato Tacos

Darn you, TacoTrail, for introducing me to these terribly addicting potato tacos. They’re all I can think about. My 2013 wish is for the Taco Party food truck to make it into the Arts District rotation. Please make this happen, Arts District people. Really, it’s for the good of downtown.

Potato tacos are commonly found in some Mexican households when, at the end of the month, they don’t have enough money to buy meat. Families make potato tacos instead. They’re simple and easy to make, but the Taco Party truck does it splendidly. These potato tacos are made from thin corn tortillas filled with potato puree, and topped with Mexican cole slaw, sour cream, and mild salsa verde on top. Each order comes with two potato tacos that are pretty filling from the starchiness, but one order isn’t even close to enough. Order two. You’ll be a better person for it.
