These 6 Taco Trucks Will Spice Up Your Next Office Fiesta
As 2021 brings new hope, many businesses around the U.S. will be reopening and employees who spent nearly a year working from home will return to on-site locations.
That means now’s the perfect time to start planning a party with taco food truck catering to introduce new employees to their colleagues in-person and enhance company culture.
Let’s check out some of New York’s finest taco food trucks that’ll help carry your business well into the new year.
If there’s one thing Dennis Kum knows it’s great food. Raised in New York’s culinary mecca Queens, Dennis spent his youth surrounded by an eclectic array of food and family gatherings featuring dishes infused with the bold spices of Guyana, South America, and China. His love for cooking is how Big D’s Grub came to be.
Putting a spotlight on cultures he grew up with, Dennis is serving Asian-fusion fare every day from his food truck. With plenty of options to choose from and using only the freshest ingredients, food truck catering from Big D’s brings exotic flavors that’ll have your employees ready to dig in!
Must try: Bulgogi tacos
Marinated in their secret spice mix, Big D’s bulgogi taco is one of the reasons why there’s always a line around the block. Using USDA Choice, grass-fed, black Angus ribeye, and marinated in soy sauce, garlic, and sesame oil, this taco is served with kimchi puree, cucumber, and zesty scallion relish.
Carlito’s Barbeque Taqueria is on a mission to proudly celebrate the cultures of Mexican and barbeque cuisine. Bringing Tex-Mex style eats to New York streets, Carlito’s Barbeque Taqueria taco truck was founded by three good friends, Carlos, Fernando, and Martin who came together to take the world of tacos by storm.
Carlito’s Barbeque Taqueria lives by the motto “food brings people together.” Putting a premium on the history of Mexican culture and cuisine, high-quality ingredients, and traditional techniques, their attention to detail makes them the perfect partner to cater your next office fiesta.
Must try: Brisket tacos
Homemade masa that becomes hand-pressed tortillas stuffed with pit-roasted slow and low brisket? Sign us up! Forget those fussy toppings, because the meat is the star of the show. No frills, full of flavor, and just the way Carlito’s Barbeque Taqueria likes it.
Tacos… with a New England twist. Cousins Maine Lobster is known nationwide for its famous Maine and Connecticut style lobster rolls, but they’re also cooking up some of the best tacos from coast-to-coast.
(Actual) cousins Jim Tselikis and Sabin Lomac launched their first food truck in 2012 after a memorable appearance on the hit TV show ‘Shark Tank,’ by winning over real estate legend and ‘Shark’ investor Barbara Corcoran. Today, 20 trucks are bringing a taste of the Northeast across the U.S.
Must try: Shrimp tacos
While you can never go wrong with a lobster grilled cheese paired with a cup of New England clam chowder, come take a bite out of Cousins Maine Lobster shrimp tacos. Using North Atlantic shrimp and topped with fresh cabbage, pico de gallo, and cilantro lime sauce on fresh flour tortillas, these shrimp tacos are a real crowd-pleaser that’ll boost any employee’s morale.
In search of fresh food and fresh beats? Disco Tacos is your new BFF and New York’s best taco food truck to get the party started. Converting a renovated horse trailer into a fiesta on wheels, Mac Osborne wanted to combine the three basics of a good time: great music, great food, and cold drinks.
Featuring dishes with catchy and creative names, like ‘Overdressed Andy Warhol’ (carne asada tacos), that pay homage to the 70s and signature margaritas and ice-cold beers, Disco Tacos is the food truck that’ll have your employees calling your after-work party anything but basic.
Must try: ‘The Super Freak’
Just like the ubiquitous Rick James song, this is a wild taco you have to try. Slow-cooked pulled pork, seasoned with bold and flavorful spices, topped with tangy pickled onions, and fresh cilantro, Disco Tacos ‘The Super Freak’ will have your tastebuds singing.
Seemingly simple dishes packing big flavors in every bite. That’s the El Toro Rojo way. And it’s a family affair. From their black and red food truck, Dennis Apreza, his father Gabriel, and sister Jocelyn are recreating Oaxacan dishes and introducing them across New York City. With a deep connection to their familial roots, El Toro Rojo brings authenticity, freshness, and quality to any office party, and they’re keeping it all in the family.
Must try: Veggie tacos
Served in a warm tortilla made from traditional nixtamal corn, with sauteed peppers and onions, Oaxaca cheese, pinto beans, pico de gallo, your choice of homemade salsa verde or roja, go ahead and feel good about that New Year’s resolution and feed your vegetarian side with El Toro Rojo’s veggie tacos.
The first thing you notice about Los Viajeros is the bright fuchsia food truck. But come a little closer and you’ll find a Latin-fusion surprise. Spanish for ‘the travelers,’ Los Viajeros is the brainchild of self-taught chefs Caitlyn Napolitano and Carlos Dacosta.
Born from their culinary adventures throughout Cuba, the Dominican Republic, and Mexico, Los Viajeros cuisine is inspired by exotic flavors and vibrant cultures. This Vendy Award and Food Network’s ‘Chopped’ winning food truck is serving bold and authentic dishes that’ll be sure to give your staff a real taste of Latin culture.
Must try: Fried fish tacos
No taco food truck does fried fish tacos better than Los Viajeros. Perfectly fried fresh tilapia, with homemade coleslaw, mango salsa, chipotle aioli, and lime, these tacos pack just as much of a punch as their fun and festive truck.
