Chupacabra Food Truck Launches Tomorrow

Screen Shot 2011-11-05 at 11.39.50 AM

A chupacabra is a mythical beast known to suck the blood of livestock. @ChupacabraDC, the other hand, is the Twitter account for the new DC food truck Chupacabra that launches tomorrow with a full stock of tacos for your enjoyment. Chupacabra will offer both traditional, and not so traditional tacos (think turkey tacos complete with stuffing). There will definitely be some tasty vegan taco options. The truck comes to us via two of the partners in Sticky Rice (1224 H Street), so I suspect we'll see them on the H Street Corridor sometime soon. The same owners have discussed opening a taco stand right off H Street, so this may be a way of testing the waters and building demand first.

I have no issue with their food truck, I do wonder how many taco establishments H Street could support - Tacos Imapala is opening their own storefront soon. I am also against the Sticky Rice guys attempts to try to move a commercial business off of H and into the residential neighborhoods. Their presentation at the ABL meeting basically demonstrated to residents that they planned on a bar that would serve some food and would occupy the sidewalk adjacent to Stan's at 9th and H and would have no indoor seating. They emphatically stated that there was no point in opening without a liquor license, and with restricted hours because they would not be completive with other bars in the area. Ninth Street residents are up in arms about this incursion of mostly late night commercial activity into a residential street.

A food truck that offers vegan taco options is good news to the growing numbers of vegans in the city. I personally prefer beef tacos with all the trimmings. Tacos that are savory and spicy are my favorite afternoon snack.
