Chilangos truck parked in the restaurant lot

I have eaten from a Chilangos truck, honest. It was parked in front of the rec center at Boise State. But ever since that time I've been trying in vain to hunt one down to photograph. Today one of my Taco Truck operatives (TTOs) called to clue me in on the location of a Chilangos truck but it was gone by the time I arrive. Not to be defeated, I, along with an associate drove to the Chilangos restaurant. One of the best things I can say about it is that it stays put. I had a pork torta. It was good but not quite as good as tortas I've eaten from Idaho trucks. I have had their tacos and they are pretty good. Let's just say that I would eat at Chilangos often if I lived in the neighborhood or if I did not want to eat outside. Otherwise I would chose one of the many trucks in Southwestern Idaho.
The tomales look good.
Bonus: while eating at Chilangos you will be treated to random animal noises, like an elephant trumpeting.

Once Again

I tried again the next day (see previous post) and still not truck. But on the bright side, I heard from a reliable source that the truck was indeed on the Boise State Campus. It had moved to a different part of University Avenue. When I find it, I will report.
