two minute lunch: habanero's taco cart

For a while, Richmond has had two main non-brick and mortar taco lunch options- Nate's Taco Truck located at VCU (now with the Truck Stop on 2nd Street) and the roving Boka Truck. Nate's serves up solid American-ized tacos with sour cream, cheese and lettuce. Boka goes gourmet with lots of sauces and fusion flavors. When I go to VCU for work, I try to make it overlap with lunch time but sadly those times are few and far between, and Boka rarely shows up in my next of the woods. Enter, real Mexican tacos.


[Habanero's Taco Cart. 10th and E Main.]




Three tacos (choice of pork, steak and chicken) with a salsa fresca and nothing else, except a lime wedge on the side is $5. I got one of each and though they were all good, though the pork may have been my favorite. The chicken, usually the blandest of the meats, was impressively flavorful. Just the tacos was filling, but I also got a side of chips and guac. Burritos also ran $5 with lots of options for fillings. Definitely a great addition to the area for downtown workers. Anyone else tried it out?

Tried these today. They were excellent. A small taste of home. Best in Richmond for sure.
