Mexican at 116th: El Camión

Aurora Avenue isn’t everyone’s favorite choice for a scenic weekend drive, but I’ll admit to visiting the enormous Home Depot at 116th street yesterday — some plantings had gone wild in June’s orgy of rain and it was time to prune back their territorial ambitions. After having procured the garden shears I set off for, I spied a taco trailer that I hadn’t seen before just off the exit ramp back on to Aurora — El Camión.

El Camión, 116th & Aurora

This has apparently been there for a few months, judging from reviews around the web (1, 2). As a previous devotee of the Redmond taco truck (Taqueria Guadalajara) I’m just glad there’s one a little closer to home. The burrito I ordered (carne asada) was delicious, and the two salsas I tried out of their selection (an avocado-based green and a smoky, creamy red) brought some hope that future trips to big-box stores in North Seattle could be accompanied by reasonably-priced, authentic taco truck detours.
