Mini Tacos El Maicol
The number of taco joints arrayed down Culebra is daunting, but relative newcomer El Maicol stood out during May’s Twisted Taco Truck Throwdown, where 35 other tacos were available for sampling within a span of three hours. The bright blue truck, complete with flag and flashing neon sign, can only be found during dinner, so plan accordingly if you want to try its perfectly seasoned tacos al pastor. The lightly toasted wee tortilla almost ditches oil completely, but remains foldable and strong enough to hold the neat fillings. Those seeking more heat can reach for the house red salsa with smoky chile de arbol for an extra kick.
