In 2008 the mobile food industry jumped onto the national stage when a young chef named Roy Choi came up with the idea of taking the the traditional taco served from many loncheros in the LA area and combining it with flavors from Korea. Choi’s Kogi truck became an instant success and since then has sparked many young culinary entrepreneurs to attempt to match this success around the world. Taco trucks are typically the first type of food truck to enter a market when its laws are modified to allow food trucks to operate on their streets. Besides the traditional Mexican style, there have been many types of fusion styled tacos attempted, some have failed, but many more have succeeded.

Because of this, we have decided to open a new contest to find out which food truck is serving our readers favorite taco. This contest will open today and will be run in two stages. For the next two weeks (we will accept emails submitted by 12 PM Central Time on Friday February 8, 2013)  we will give our readers to submit their choices via email at: contest@mobile-cuisine.com, and once the data is collected, we will open a poll (Monday February 11, 2013) to allow voting from the top 10 email submissions.

To be eligible for the final poll, the food truck needs to have opened before January 2013 and must regularly serve the taco dish from their truck, cart or trailer. The ingredients of the taco can be any combination of flavors (traditional or fusion), or cuisine and the taco can be served in a hard or soft shell. The trucks can be located in any country so feel free to submit choices from outside of North America.

We look forward to receiving your submissions. Food truck owners are free to submit their own trucks for consideration and voters may vote as often as you wish. The only request we have is that you submit one entry at a time and include the name of the truck, the taco name as well as the city  or area the food truck operates in.

The winning truck will be profiled here at Mobile Cuisine and will hold the title of Best Food Truck Taco for 2013.

So let the voting begin. And remember, vote early and vote often.


Do you have a favorite mobile food vendor or group of vendors in the United States?

Phase 1

Mobile Cuisine Magazine has a new contest we need your help with. At this moment we are looking to hear from you. Once this poll has closed we will tally up the votes and combine them with additional information we are gathering at this moment. Once tabulated, we will be able to explain and present the next phase and official rules to our upcoming event here at MCM.

Now is Your Chance

Vote early and vote often. This phase of our contest allows anyone to vote, for any food truck, food cart or mobile street vendor within the United States (votes will only be counted if vendor is operating or will start operation before the end of April 2011). If you have one favorite, feel free to submit as many votes for them as you like. If you have a group of trucks in your area, submit a vote for each (separately). At this time we are not concerned with why they are your favorite, so if you merely like a truck or cart based on its painted your favorite color, feel free to submit a vote for them. Mobile Food Vendors are welcome to vote for themselves or let their customers know about this competition to have them vote for you.

Tell your friends and family, spread the word. The more votes received the better.

You can vote in this post or at our static voting form page <here>

This phase of our contest will run until midnight (CST) Friday, February 25, 2011

*edit: changed end date for phase 1
