I love the food trucks in Calgary, they are unique and they taste pretty good too! Our Mexican Cuisine food truck would be the glorious Los Compadres, and I must say – I get really excited when they or ALL the food trucks come to Deerfoot Meadows because that is the place I’m most likely going to catch them if I want them!
I tried their Bisteck (3 Top Sirloin Tacos), and I loved it! It was a corn tortilla folded around a beef filling, and in this case it was top sirloin tacos. These tacos was topped of with cilantro and onions with salsa on the side. I’ve never tasted a tortilla fresher than these, and the texture was soft and chewy! It was delicious – best of all, the tortilla was strong enough where it didn’t break, but it wasn’t all you tasted. It was a great balance between the ingredients – plenty of meat, fresh ingredients. Fresh tacos from Los Compradres is something I would highly recommend, and it sure beats a lot of fast food locations in food courts!
I’ve also had the opportunity to try their Churro (Regular) on another date during BaconFest in Calgary! It was a fun event, and a lot of the food trucks was at the BaconFest this year! I’ve got to say, I was a little disappointed but I think it’s because of the demand they had to keep up with – since lot of of people who attended this event was holding at least a churro or two — so I think they pre-fried it. It was kind of hard and cold, and it just wasn’t hot, soft, tender and delicious! I think the next time I see Los Compadres, I will have to give it another shot as it was something I really wanted, and wanted it to be the best!
This is an amazing food truck, with great fun owners/server, and fresh, delicious food – it has become one of my top ranking food trucks in Calgary! I think it’s definitely worth a shot especially after lot of improving over the summer months – I’m sure you’ll think it’s extra special as well!
