Over 7 years ago Roy Choi’s Kogi Truck kick started the gourmet food truck industry with his Korean fusion version of the traditional taco truck cruising the streets of LA. Since then, taco trucks are commonly one of the first types of food trucks to enter local markets when their 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.

3 years ago we started a contest to find out which food truck was serving our readers favorite taco. Last year the What The Fork food truck of Scranton, PA was our winner.

Today we are starting our search for the best in 2016.

This contest opens today and will be run in two stages. For the next two weeks (we will accept emails submitted by 11:59 PM Easter Time on Friday February 19, 2016)  we will give our readers to submit their choices via email to: contest

[at] mobile-cuisine [dot] com, and once the votes have been collected, we will open a poll on Monday February 22, 2016 to allow voting from the top 10 email submissions.

Eligibility for 2016 Food Truck Taco Of The Year

To be eligible for the final poll for the 2016 food truck taco of the year, the food truck needs to have opened before January 2016 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.

So let the voting for the 2016 Food Truck Taco of the Year begin. And remember, vote early and vote often.
