Kala Truck

Kala Truck is a Mexican food truck based in Irvine, California. They also do events throughout parts of Southern California. I saw them serving food at Vidcon 2016 last month. From what I remember, this is at least their second visit to Vidcon (as I reviewed a food item from them in 2015).

Another family-run food truck here. Family recipes with contemporary presentation. The menu featured on their website is basically the full menu; only certain dishes may be on the food truck at any given time. At Vidcon, I saw the usual items at a Mexican food truck: Burritos, tacos, quesadillas, and even carnita fries. Sides included rice and beans.

I ordered the Taco Plate ($9.95): choice of any two specialty tacos, with black beans, Spanish rice, and a few tortilla chips. I got one Patron taco and one Baja Fish taco.

The Patron Taco features tender steak marinated in Patron tequila and lime, topped with pico de gallo, guacamole, and queso fresco between double corn tortillas. The Baja Fish Taco had herb-marinated grilled fish, cabbage slaw, pico de gallo, and chipotle cream sauce between double corn tortillas.

Both tacos were tremendous. Each had a healthy amount of tender steak or juicy fish. Stunning presentation. Refreshing vegetables. Top-notch guacamole and chipotle cream sauce. I would seriously consider eating a dozen of those for lunch. Even the rice and beans were awesome.

If I had to pick one, I'd choose the steak. For me, I wanted the fish cut up into chunks a bit more, but that's more my preference. Flavors were simply money.

There are a couple of house-made hot sauces here as well. Good stuff, would like it even spicier.

As an added treat (and nice surprise to me), the legendary Furious Pete (YouTube star) also ordered food from this truck. Of course, he wolfed down his quesadilla in no time flat. I had to snap a selfie with him while we were both waiting for our food. Been a huge fan of his channel for years.

Kala Truck is an elite food truck. Head over and get their food if you see them in Southern Cal! 9.25/10
