Authentic Mexican Food Truck
Local authority the source weekly says “don’t pass by this little gem the next time you’re zooming on Third Street; this cart serves delicious, authentic street fare inspired by the state of Jalisco, Mexico.” Intrigued? They are talking about the affordable Tacos Pihuamo, a food cart just off 3rd St in the St. Vincent de Paul parking lot, whose fish tacos have been called the best in Bend. Choices are standard chicken, shredded beef and pork, but they also have carne asada, pork carnitas and lengua to keep it real. Owned by the friendly Lara Mendoza family, they have a salsa bar to top all your choices, and, while they get a lot of traffic in the summer, people are more than willing to stand out in the cold for these eats. They have covered benches to make it a little more welcoming during cold months, and fresh drinks like limeade and tamarind water during the hotter months. They get consistently high marks online for delicious, affordable authenticity.
