The Truck: El Camión.
There are several locations (including a brick and mortar in Ballard) and we have visited the one located in a parking lot near Home Depot in north Seattle in the past. We noticed this truck just sitting in a lot for several weeks before it opened….without fanfare……just open one day last week with no announcement. They already have lines waiting to order!
It’s located near University Village; just across the street from Jak’s Grill on Sand Point Way NE. Great to have our own taco truck in the neighborhood and the menu and food are the same at both locations we have visited. The food is authentic, very good, and the service friendly and spot on.
This visit we had a variety of tacos…shrimp, carnitas and pollo all served up on corn tortillas. A variety of meats are available, including tripe and tongue…with veg options as well. On another visit camarones a la diabla were the choice…..comes with a choice of hotness…..recommend you go with mild unless you really like hot….even the medium was on the uncomfortable side of the scale! The menu has many choices so you will find something to enjoy.
There is a small parking lot beside the truck which makes access…and therefore ordering…..a delight. They have a few tables that allow you to enjoy your order on the spot….or take it away as we did….too cold and rainy to really enjoy the outdoor experience the day we visited. But wait for summer and the experience will be quite different….and likely, much busier.
They offer breakfast items as well…..served more like brunch since they don’t open until 10 am.
