Taco truck fitted with a bumpin’ sound system? Check.
Tequila infused menu created by a world-class chef? Check.
Delicious free Mexican food all summer long? Check and check.
We hope you didn’t miss it. Yesterday was the last day of a summer-long promotion featuring free food courtesy of Famila Camarena Tequila. But we don’t want the free food to distract you from what’s really important… the tequila baby! Prominent Los Angeles food blogger Street Gourmet LA says “Its the best tequila at its price point!” and Rebel is delivering the samples.
Familia Camarena and Rebel enlisted chef to the stars and owner of Recess in Glendale, Chef Sevan Azarian to create an original tequila-infused menu that was served from the truck. Asada, carnitas, and pollo, all marinated in Camarena Tequila. What ever you want, we got it (well almost). Even a veggie option!
The truck was sent rolling around greater Los Angeles from June through August hitting shopping areas, nightclubs, and lifestyle events like: DTLA Art Walk, World Cup screenings at Nike Montalban Theatre, the LA Street Food Fest, and was even featured in Static Revenger’s new video for Vega$. We also did a private house party with a performance by Bruno Mars.

As you might have guessed, the truck was extremely well received. I mean c’mon, who doesn’t want free tacos? The free food is definitely an attraction in itself, but again we’re here for the tequila. Just ask Elvis, he’s down with Camarena.
The truck is going on hiatus for fall, but something tells me you’ll see it again somewhere.
Special thanks to Orion Car Audio for the crazy sound hookup.
