Taqueria La Fondita #2 is one of my new favorite trucks in Seattle. Situated on a patch of exposed concrete in the heart of White Center, prices at #2 (and portions) are slightly higher than at other trucks in the area. The standards (tacos, mulitas, sopitos, etc.) abound and are served with the full compliment of fixin's. Usually I prefer a selection of the appetizers instead of the full meal plates at Seattle area taco trucks, but the full plates looked excellent here - I'll have to go back to try them.
Typically you can grab some radishes with your meal, but #2 serves up carrots, radishes and wonderful whole fried onions. You can feel like you're in a toasty oven under the heat lamps on cool evenings.
This truck served free food with a suggested donation for a full day after Hurricane Katrina. All of the proceeds went to the Red Cross. The employees volunteered their time and the owner donated all the food.
The pork (carnitas) tacos and mulitas are great
Tacos and meals come with tasty extras
The $1 special is limited in scope
The full menu is a little tough to read
