Dear Food Truck Community:
I never ask for anything. I have my favorites and just when I start to think about what I'd love to see served out of local food trucks, it instantly appears. (Thank you, Twisted Tandoor.) But I read a recent post in LA Magazine about the Churro Borough Pop-Up from the food truck Mexicali Taco and Company:
Imagine this: warm, freshly fried, spiral-shaped churros the size of cookies—but thicker, like a small donut—holding, ever-so-gently, a creamy scoop of caramel peach ice cream. The churro is fluffy yet crisp, with a thick layer of cinnamon sugar clinging to its delicate surface. The ice cream, made from a custard base, leaves nothing to the imagination. It's rich and cool and just what you've been waiting for all week long.
Yes. I can imagine this. I can imagine this in Tucson—our own version of a churro ice cream sandwich coming to a food truck round-up soon. Please?
