Taqueria Los Potrillos

Taqueria Los Potrillos is a small taco truck in the parking lot of a gas station in Rainier Valley, South Seattle. The food is great and has a certain home-made, light-on-the-spice-spice quality to it. It features a little tent with a couple of underutilized tables and ample parking space, where most of the patrons eat in their cars. The islands of the gas station add lumination, but surprisingly little gasoline scent to the interior of the covered eating area.

Los Potrillos is open and is hopping until 10PM. The parking lot is full after dark, with the area in front of the taco truck doubling as a parking spot when others are taken.

The menu is complete, but prices have been edited.

The menu is fairly standard and is supplemented by an illustrated menu across the front of the truck. As usual, I cannot say much about the platillos, but the sides such as the mulitas and quesadillas are great. Each is piled with the basic ingredients: cheese and meat. No fancy salsa here, but the perfunctory bottles of hot sauce are in abundance.

The illustrated menus looks at you as you place your order.

I'm particularly fond of the hand-written special menu.

Gas pumps feature prominently in the view from the table. Coke is the better Mexican variety.

The mulita comes with pickled (?) vegetables and lots of great filling.
