Must Get: Lengua Tacos (Beef tongue!)

I heard about the taco trucks on Fair Oaks from my cousin Alan one night during dinner at Mi Piace. And so despite having finished a calamari appetizer and my pasta plate, when I left I was craving some tacos. I swung by Arturo’s for two lengua tacos (that and fish tacos are my favorites) before heading over to another cousin’s place, so they sat in my car for about 5-10 minutes before I actually sat down to eat them.

They were still great. The meat was tender and well-seasoned. The tacos here are served plain, just your meat filling and the tortilla. They have huge containers in the front of the truck filled with onions, cilantro, tomatoes, salsa, etc. You just help yourself which I think is awesome. I like mine plain with just onions, cilantro, and a hint of lime. I definitely plan to come back and try their other meats. If it’s any reflection of the tongue, i know it’ll be amazing.
