Food trucks in SD...where are they?

I wish they'd hit UCSD/Scripps/Salk more. Any ideas who I can beg to make this happen? Salk just shut its cafeteria down, leaving a thousand hungry folks with very few close options.

Tacos German truck in OB is closing

Actually, the one I heard rhymes with Riko's, but I suppose in the end, it really doesn't matter. I would like to see a little more public flogging of wussy businesses who think a taco truck is driving them under, though. I just wrote Faulconer to see what the deal is (kevinfaulconer@sandiego.gov) and encourage you guys to do the same.

Tacos German truck in OB is closing

They said "the city" and I think it has something to do with permitting. Also, they did not seem too optimistic about getting the issue fixed in a manner that would have them back in OB, so I'm not really sure what's happening. I'll ask again and see if I can get any more information. Such a bummer, if true.

Feh! It's my favorite eatery in all of OB. They claim the city is making them close; does anybody know anything about this or if we can avert it?

Topo chico in San Diego?

I've lived here about a year, moved in from Austin, Texas. It took a little sleuthing to find most of my habitual drugs - PG Tips tea, good fish tacos from a truck, etc. - but finding Topo Chico mineral water has been challenging. Every so often I see it in IB, but no beverage stores ever seem to know what I'm talking about. Anybody have the lowdown?

Marisco German is the best thing to happen to OB since Azucar. Seriously!

And Then There Were Three:Top 3 Taco Carts in Austin TX

Don't forget Taqueria la Canaria, at 51st and Airport next to Casey's New Orleans Snowballs. Their al pastor gorditas beat anyone's in town, at least, that's what my mouth tells me.
