What do you get if you cross social media with Melbourne's new found obsession with all things Mexican?

No, it's not the start of some lame joke. The answer is the Taco Truck. The Taco Truck is a new mobile food van, whizzing its way across Melbourne and vending tacos to the hungry masses.

One would think it would be difficult to predict where the Taco Truck is going to pop next, but the best way to keep up to date with its current and next location is to either like the Facebook page or follow the Taco Truck on Twitter. This is a rather clever and interactive marketing strategy that works wonders for the truck (it is, however, always a pleasant surprise to run across it randomly in your travels.)

The trucks were launched with the simple aim of bringing delicious, fresh Mexican street food to Melbourne with no frills. The truck often stays in the one location until they run out of tacos, and then moves on. With a choice of chicken, fish and vegie tacos, there is something for all tastes (and corn tortillas means even us gluten free peeps can have a crack).

Also available is a range of Mexican soft drinks and hot sauces to adorn your taco. But be warned, these are not your average 'claim to be spicy but rather mild' hot sauces, these are the real deal. Your tongue has been warned.
