Too hot. Every day for weeks. When the temperature dipped—by only a few degrees—it was incentive enough to think about a picnic lunch. And Taco’s Tacos, a food truck on the Lebanon green, was waiting.
The stories of those who have preceded me to this relatively new addition to Lebanon’s food scene are true. Taco’s Tacos is everything you want it to be and more: great food, cheerful service, reasonable prices at $3 per taco. Roast pork, chicken, ground beef, and black bean with all of the fresh, colorful toppings, served on just-grilled corn tortillas. With a blackberry ginger ale, lunch totaled $7.
Taco’s Tacos is owned and run by Eduardo Moran and Cassandra Carter of Lebanon NH. Follow them on Facebook.
The other choice this afternoon, VT Munchies, (Boisvert’s, classic purveyor of burgers and champion lobster rolls, was absent) attracted my companion with its offer of truffle fries and Korean tacos. We watched a small but growing crowd scuttling between the two trucks, trying to decide where to land.
A bench in Colburn Park is always good for people-watching. Today there were the usual kids pumping the swings and a young woman practicing her tightrope-walking on a cord strung between two trees. The main event was a delightful concert (sponsored by Lebanon Recreation and Parks) with drummer Bob Bloom (below), leading many dozens of singing, dancing, and drumming little blue-shirted campers. For many of them, although not for us, it may have been the first time they heard the song, Wooly Bully.
