Tapa Tapa serves tapas, but not in the traditional restaurant-style way. Rather, this is a food truck that specializes in Tex-Mex creations that are as inventive as they are yummy. If you want to experience food unlike any you’ve had before, check out this food truck as soon as possible.

Unusual Creations that Impress

A lot of the options on the menu here aren’t things that you’d normally think about ordering, and might not even sound good. For example, chicken livers and oysters sounds more slimy and gross than it does delicious and tempting. However, if you try it, justĀ try it, you’re going to change your mind. They’re cooked in a light batter, making them quite crispy. They’re also topped with veggies banh mi style, and are seasoned to perfection. If you don’t want to eat these chicken livers by the pound after trying one, we’ll be shocked. In addition to the chicken livers, they often have other unusual creations, such as a watermelon, mint, and pop rocks food item.

The Food that Makes them Popular

While the food above certainly attracts a big crowd, the things that really make them famous are their more down-to-earth creations. For example, their mac & cheese, made with seven different types of cheese and topped with cheese crackers–is absolutely heavenly. The fried chicken balls are also a top crowd pleaser, and feature chicken that’s fried in something similar to funnel cake. The pork belly is tender and juicy, and is a great option for those craving a little protein. The shrimp ceviche with pork rinds has also been lauded as one of the most amazing menu items, and if you’re at the truck on the day they’re serving this, buy it up in bulk, because it goes quickly!

Be Prepared for What They’ve Got

While the food mentioned above are all things that they’ve served before, their menu is rotating and changes often to satisfy customers’ needs and to keep it interesting. Therefore, if you go hoping for the mac & cheese and they don’t have it, don’t get too down about it–everything else is equally as tasty, and there’s bound to be something on the menu that will make you salivate.

Don’t Go at it Alone

The food here isĀ tapas style, meaning that the portions are small and tasty rather than gargantuan and filling. As such, the best way to eat here is to go with a group, each order something different, sit down at a nearby table, and share a bit of everything. Not only do you get to bond with your friends this way, but you also get to sample a bit of everything and pick out your favorites for next time. Plus, an order to yourself might not fill you up.

Another good to know thing is that they’re open late (until 2 AM), so if you’re out at the bar with your pals or gals then this is a great late night hangout for food before hitting the sack.
