The Big Easy’s vibrant uptown bar scene inevitably attracted a flock of food trucks catering to late-night customers. According to the blog GoNOLA.com, Taceaux Loceaux, which opened in 2010, is “possibly the brightest shining star in this relatively new genre.” Taceaux Loceaux, as their name suggests, serves “Nola-Mex” tacos. Yes, that includes the ubiquitous Korean taco (Seoul Man); other favorites include the Aieee, which contains spicy-hot andouille sausage, and Messin’ with Texas, a BBQ brisket taco. The husband-wife team, Maribeth and Alex del Castillo, recently opened a permanent location inside the nightclub Chickie-Wah-Wah, which will offer an even more varied menu of tacos and new goodies like ceviche and homemade salsas. – AS
