Bite by Bite – The Pollo Asado Torta from The Taco Truck

I had to go back to Hoboken to take care of some unfinished business. This "unfinished business" involved two things:

1. Dismantling the huge flat screen TV box I left in my former empty apartment.

2. Disposing of the rest of the Bud Light that I left in my fridge.

Neither of these proved to be easy tasks. Armed with nothing more than a pair of scissors and some tape, at one point I crawled into the large TV box to try and take it apart from the inside. This did not work, and I fell over (while in the box).

All this work made me hungry and I doubted my ability to make it back to the Upper West Side without sustenance. So, I stopped at The Taco Truck's brick and mortar establishment in Hoboken and ordered myself up a Pollo Asado Torta.

Happiness ensued and I forgot about the inside-the-box-falling-over-incident as soon as I got a mouthful of the guajillo marinated grilled chicken. It was so moist and flavorful. Pickled jalapenos and white onions added a kick in the pants, but was nicely balanced by smooth crema, a wonderful mush of avocado and a tangy black bean paste.

And then there was the bread! It was all encased in a toasted round of spongy bread that both soaked up the finer tastes, but didn't get soggy.

And it was all served in a little camping-like tin container. Diet Coke optional!
