Jose Garces Returning to Ottsville Market
The Iron Chef's taco truck will return to the Ottsville Farmers Market tonight from 4 to 6 p.m.
When Iron Chef Jose Garces' taco truck visited the Ottsville Farmers Market in May, some people were disappointed.
The truck ran out of food before everyone had the chance to sample the specialty tacos.
So now, they're returning, with more food.
Garces' taco truck, Guapos Tacos truck will return to the market north of Doylestown today. But market organizers warned would-be foodies to get there early.
"Each time they visit Ottsville, they bring more tacos but please plan to arrive early, 4 - 6 pm to enjoy specialties from our favorite Philadelphia food truck," they said in an email blast to their supporters this week.
Iron Chef Garces, who owns a farm near Ottsville, also appeared at the market in September 2011. His appearance attracted quite a crowd, and lines grew long.
Guapos launched last spring, bringing "modern Mexican street food" to Philadelphia. The truck is covered with 45,000 bottle caps arranged in a geometric design.
Menu choices include Green Chile Chicken, with white onion, radish, cilantro, crema, queso fresco ($6), Carnitas, with smoky black beans and pineapple-habanero salsa ($7), and Chipotle Short Rib, with white onion, radish, cilantro, crema, and queso fresco ($7).
