Have eaten here numerous times. I always go for the beef burrito. It's packed with really tasty and really filling beef, rice, and other goodies. Highly recommend this place.

I tried one of each of the tacos; spicy pulled pork, red chili beef, chicken verde and the mince and cheese. Each taco had a completely different flavour profile, and all of them were very good. The pulled pork is the hands-down winner, with a tangy and garlicky sauce and plenty of chili kick. I've heard they do fish and chorizo & potato tacos on occasion.

Purchased one Chicken Salsa Verde and one Pulled Pork taco. I struggled to find the chicken and the salsa verde in the first taco, and the meat in both tacos was very, VERY dry. For the amount of meat and filling in the taco ($5 each) I questioned whether it was value for money. I'm still stuck on the fence on that one. The pork taco had a wonderful flavour and a lovely level of spice (although I would consider it mild, people who don't like spice would find it hot but bearable). The 40 minute wait-time was acceptable considering how busy it was however the lady on the cash register, although polite, wasn't particularly friendly - a smile costs nothing.

A great food truck in the popular pallet pavilion. We've eaten here about 4 times and thought we'd give the hard working staff a pat on the back. The menu is straightforward, burritos, tacos or quesadillas. My favourite is the pulled pork burritos with a medium heat, washed down with a Mexican mandarin soda. Pretty well priced and a nice antidote to generic mall food court offerings.
