Corona Food Truck Festival
By Ashley Bennett
But it’s really, really good stuff.
It was a hot day (100 degree weather that is just miserable to walk around in). So of course I made the worst (and best) choice, hot food items.
The Phantom Food Truck is based in LA and offers a mix of regular and unique tacos, fry orders and “inferno wings,” all Asian flavor with a dash of American flair. I was instantly interested in the Black Fury Tacos; bits of juicy flank steak, drizzled with a tasty (but not very spicy) black pepper sauce. Sadly I was expecting a taco with more of a kick, but the sauce mixed with tender meat and crispy greens was still right down my alley. Hello, my name is Ashley and I’m a taco addict.
On the other hand, a much less spicy choice can be found with the Peking Duck Taco. Along with the usual taco goods (shredded cabbage, cucumber and green onions) this street taco is topped with a few slices of shredded and roasted duck (with a “special duck sauce.”) It was a much more refreshing, albeit extremely messy. Note to self: bring your own plate next time.
