Taco Party

Although there has been an officially designated food truck spot near Ashmont Station for some time, there has been little food truck parking in the 'hood. Wait no longer! Taco Party now brings tasty vegetarian tacos to the masses every Friday evening for dinner. Sadly, we didn't have a chance to sample the food, since it sold out after about an hour on their inaugural day. We hope to report back soon, if we can make it there in time to enjoy what others have described as an "intense vegetarian taco."
