Does anyone have any information about the long-ago promised taco truck that was going to set up in one of the Huling lots? We really need this thing up and running, I mean, COME ON!! How about a friggin’ hot dog cart? Falafel/gyros! Meat on a stick! We need street food!October 8, 2009 at 7:20 pm #679313October 8, 2009 at 7:37 pm #679314
The operator finally answered my note some weeks back. He’d been distracted by something or another but still had it in the works and promised to let us know when he was finally getting close to heading this way.October 8, 2009 at 7:45 pm #679315
Well, that was easy. Found the address, shot him a note and got an almost instant answer:
“I’m going to shoot for opening in 4 weeks, so around the first half of November.”October 8, 2009 at 8:12 pm #679316
WSB, I think I love you! (I know, I know, get in line pal). seriously, it is nice to have specialists in our community/society. Thanks for checking on that for me.
Mmmm, tacos de lengua y cabeza!!
Hope they stay open late!October 8, 2009 at 8:49 pm #679317
Tangentially, there was an article in today’s Seattle Times about a street foot festival of sorts in the Interbay area on Saturday: 1600 block of Barton.October 9, 2009 at 3:37 am #679318

Full Tilt! Thanks for the facts on the event. Maybe we can bring you something…?October 9, 2009 at 5:02 am #679320October 9, 2009 at 9:30 am #679321
Oh damn! JanS mentioned this in the open disc. forum. I thought it was going to be a permanent fixture; bummed it is for only one day. I’ll need to rearrange my schedule, but I WAS planning on eating sometime that day, anyway. Maybe more than once!
Too bad you gotta go to some dumb ol’ wedding that day Mom (congrats to Cynthia & Eric, I’ll let you know what you missed after the honeymoon).October 10, 2009 at 9:01 pm #679322
No real street food in Seattle. Apparently New Yorkers, LaAers, Chicagoers, San Franciscos all have fortified enough intestines to eat food from hand trucks, Seattle internals are far too weak to accept such method of food delivery.October 14, 2009 at 8:47 pm #679323
Probably a remnant of the many laws created in Seattle and other cities in the 20th Cent. in an atmosphere heavily influenced by racism, classism, and food safety fears taken to the extreme.
Apparently, Seattle’s street-food laws are undergoing a substantial overhaul which should allow for an expansion of the scene. Check back in 6 months.February 11, 2010 at 7:09 pm #679324
I was in Portland last month and found the food-cart area of the Pearl District. If you haven’t heard about this, they have ringed a couple of parking lots with various food carts serving everything from soup to nuts. Well, I didn’t actually see any nuts, but you could get a Nutella crepe for dessert.
I’m just fantasizing about how much better Huling would look with a bunch of food carts strung along Fauntleroy like a bunch of tasty, aromatic jewels.February 11, 2010 at 7:44 pm #679325February 12, 2010 at 8:41 am #679326February 12, 2010 at 6:04 pm #679327
I hope we won’t get “fooled” again.
City of Seattle has recently changed food cart rules to allow them to cook from raw. In the past, they could only reheat food, which works well with tacos, noodles, etc. but now there could potentially be a greater variety of food available from a cart.
Get with it entrepenuers.
I would do it, but I want to serve booze at my place. No liquor licenses for food carts (yet).
