I sampled Calle del Sabor tacos at the Manayunk StrEAT food truck festival in September 2015. Spanish for “street flavor,” Calle del Sabor opened their truck in 2012. They have a varied menu with flavors such as Korean pork tacos, curry shrimp, beef brisket, and Baja fish tacos. Rotating specials are often available.
The items I chose were a la carte, so I chose 2 al pastor tacos and one curry shrimp. The shrimp was big and juicy, and bursting with spicy curry. You might be wondering why most of the third taco in the photo is gone. It’s because I was really hungry and I ate most of the shrimp taco before I could take a photo. It was my favorite taco of the two that I tried, and al pastor is usually my favorite.
The al pastor tacos had a good amount of fresh pineapple salsa. Prices were great with only a few dollars per taco. Their featured item is the 3 Little Pigs, which is featured on their logo. This includes smoked pork, bacon, and chorizo, served with queso fundido spread (like a nacho cheese sauce), lettuce, and pico de gallo.
This is a truly mobile munchie truck, which frequents a few areas in University City and Fishtown. They are known to travel to many festivals throughout Philly and even down to the Washington DC area.
Location: Check their Facebook page to see where they are, but they are often parked at 34th & Market, Frankford & Girard, as well as lots of food festivals, night markets, and other events.
