Roach-Coaching it Cal-Style in Berkeley, California
Berkeley students, professors, construction workers, and skint taco-loving locals keep a special place in their hearts for the taco truck on Bancroft at Telegraph. Find a semi-shady spot on the cement retaining wall and sip cold tamarind Jarritos while you wait for your food. When your number comes up, you are handed a white and red paper tray full of warm Mexican tacos. Modest piles of meat, onions, cilantro, and salsa sit atop two soft corn tortillas each. Your stomach growls in anticipation but you feel you have to take a moment to give thanks to the world for the gift of the Taco Truck. All this food is yours, for only $1.25 per portion? ¡En serio! Plus, your fingers will smell deliciously of lime and flour tortilla for the rest of the day. This could be habit forming.
