I was quite excited when we drove into Nelson the other weekend for the ROAM Randonee Race and I spotted the Confusion Taco Truck parked at the turn-off to the Whitewater Ski Resort.
The next day after the race, we headed to the Taco Truck for lunch. I ordered the small beef taco ($6.00) which came topped with pineapple salsa and crispy onions. Dave ordered the small pulled pork taco ($6.00) which was topped with salsa, hot sauce and crispy onions. Both were taco perfection. Moist, tasty meat. Warm, soft tortillas. Fresh, flavorful toppings.
We were also given a sample of their fresh kettle chips. The chips were perfectly seasoned and could be very addictive!
I had a coffee - they serve the local Oso Negro Coffee - and Dave had a hot chocolate. The hot chocolate was made properly from scratch in a pot. Pretty impressive for a food truck!
On our way back to Calgary, we stopped at the Taco Truck once again for breakfast. Dave had the waffles with berry compote and maple syrup ($8.00) . I had the Breakfast Wrap with eggs and pulled pork ($10.00). Once again everything was delicious - sure beats the standard Egg McMuffins from McDonald's as a road trip breakfast!
If I lived a little closer to Nelson I would be at this food truck all the time. Unfortunately 6 hours is a little far to drive for tacos.
