If you haven’t treated yourself to a Pinche Taco, do so immediately. My friend Mark is probably the biggest taco freak I know, and he swears these are among the best in town. And for some reason, when I woke up on Saturday morning, I immediately wanted breakfast tacos, which are harder to find here in Denver than I want them to be.
So, my breakfast companion and I headed over to the Cherry Creek Farmers Market and made straight for the Pinche trailer. I’d had their tacos before, but never had managed to get their “Bricklayer” breakfast taco – I tried once, but the order got confused and I happily “settled” for the totally delicious “queso a la plancha” cheese and avocado taco. The Bricklayer is similar to la plancha in that it’s got at its foundation a chunk of griddled up cotija cheese goodness. Throw some scrambled eggs and their tangy and delicious tomatillo salsa on top, and it’s one helluva breakfast taco. They’ve got some great looking meaty options too, which have the added bonus of potatoes. Sadly, no potato/egg vegetarian friendly menu items, but I think next time I’ll see if I can’t get one prepped up special. Divine, regardless. And it went down especially well with a perfect iced coffee from the EVO Bean folks.
While scarfing down our tacos, my breakfast companion and I ran a few questions by Pinche’s owner, Kevin, about the Justice League of Street Food and their plans. He gave us some clues as to the location of the impending fiesta coming up this Saturday. He said that if he told us the intersection, we’d still not be able to imagine the space – apparently it’s one of those places you can drive by every day and never really notice. He also let fly this tidbit: There’s an intersection of the same two street names in Chicago. California? Lawrence? Who knows. Stay tuned to their FB feed for the announcement on Saturday morning, and we’ll repost it here, once we know. As for their future plans? It sounds like the seven vendors involved are mostly focused on planning parties like the one coming up this weekend. Which sounds like a damned fine idea to me.
