Mexican food truck comes to Adyar

Get ready to taste the Nachos and Tacos at Taco Feest, a food truck parked at Gandhi Nagar 4th Main Road (outside Gandhi Nagar Cricket Club) from 2 p.m. to 10.30 p.m., every night. This food truck is a venture by Feest Truck India Pvt. Limited and is owned by Raja Rajan. Around six staffs are involved in the operations of the truck. Their menu features tacos, nachos, burritos, quesadillas, mocktails, nitrogen ice creams and beverages. The tortillas used for tacos and burritos along with the sauces are prepared at a centralised kitchen situated at Velachery.

“After a brief stint in food industries, our owner wanted to start a food outlet that serves a new variety of food. Though Adyar and the neighbourhood areas are bestowed with a diverse range of food outlets, we don’t have many food trucks that serve quality quick snacks. We zeroed on the idea of starting a Mexican food truck after a year of research. On the healthier aspect, we avert the use of maida in tortillas and the sauces are made from red beans,” says Anand, operations manager at Taco feest.

Another highlight of their menu is the incorporation of nitrogen ice creams, where the ice cream is prepared by mixing liquid cream and flavours with liquid nitrogen which freezes at -321 degrees Fahrenheit. The whole process takes under a minute. They are also serving dragon’s breath dessert – corn puffs infused with liquid nitrogen.

When eaten and exhaled, it releases a thick smoke from mouth and nostrils mimicking a dragon’s breath.
The food truck can be reached at 99416 66102.
