Taco Truck to Visit a Different SoCal City Each Week Through June 13
Carlsbad CA— Calling all taco lovers! Rubio’s Coastal Grill is giving free tacos to fans across Southern California with their first Food Truck Tour. For four weeks, through June 13, Rubio’s will be sampling their new adventure-inspired Rubio’s x Blais Street Tacos, menu items just launched in partnership with Celebrity Chef Richard Blais.
The Rubio’s x Blais Street Taco Truck will visit a different city each week. Locations will be available at (https://blog.rubios.com/taco-truck-tour) and updates will be posted on Rubio’s social media, including Facebook and Instagram.
Each week, the food truck will be stopping at a variety of locations in each market:
- May 27–31 — San Diego
- June 3–6 — Inland Empire
- June 9–13 — LA
“We’re inviting everyone who has been missing travel and adventure to come to our Food Truck for a taste of favorite destinations – Hawaii, New Orleans and New York,” said Rubio’s Co-Founder Ralph Rubio. “We partnered with Chef Richard Blais, who infused incredibly bold flavors and textures, to create three delicious Rubio’s x Blais street tacos that are completely new for Rubio’s fans. We can’t wait for Rubio’s fans to try them, so we’re taking them to the streets.”
The three new tacos, available for free from the Taco Truck, include:
- Hula Hula Carnitas: Inspired by Chef Blais’ time in Hawaii, the Hula Hula Carnitas taco features pork marinated in a rich blend of gochujang, achiote, and garlic, wrapped in a banana leaf and slow-cooked, creating tender, juicy meat with an authentic Hawaiian Kalua flavor.
- Blaised & Glazed Crispy Chicken: Delivering a tangy, zesty taco twist on Buffalo chicken, the Blaised & Glazed taco starts with Rubio’s crispy chicken tossed in Frank’s RedHot® sauce, the secret ingredient used in the original Buffalo wings created in Buffalo, NY in 1964.
- Ancho Po-Boy Shrimp: Named after New Orleans’ most famous sandwich, the Ancho Po-Boy Shrimp taco is a modern take on classic New Orleans street food.
