WEST SEATTLE FOOD: Taqueria La Original arrives in The Triangle


Thanks to Matthew for the tip via Twitter: A new taco truck has set up shop on the West Seattle Produce lot at 4722 Fauntleroy Way SW, the spot Beloved Mexico left in November 2015. We just talked with Abacu at Taqueria La Original. He says he’ll be there 10:30 am-10 pm, seven days a week.Here’s the temporary menu:


Beloved Mexico had been there five years when it closed, citing factors including competition and the fact the site was slated for redevelopment. While the CVS drugstore project that was on the drawing board then has since been canceled, we broke the news just before Christmas of a new project planned for the site, two apartment buildings

    MUCH, MUCH, MUCH prefer Tacos to more apartments.

    Maybe they will open early with breakfast burritos.

    Wasn’t this also an anti-Trump campaign tease? Taco Trucks on every corner! A wall of Taco Trucks!

      Yes it was a comment made during the campaign that if something wasn’t done about imigration there would be taco trucks on every corner.  

      1) I’m glad to see a small business try to give it a go and bring another quick service food option to the area.

      2)Why would anyone ever have a problem with taco trucks on every corner?  That is a world that I want to live in as long as they have a legitimately spicy salsa option! 

      Viva Taco Trucks!!! Viva West Seattle!!!!!
