Wednesday November 25 – Today was a long day of driving to the suburbs of Washington DC. We arrived safely about 5:30 this evening. We are tired and the cats are happy to be out of the bus and inside a warm and welcoming home.
The highlight of today’s adventures came as a total surprise. We stopped at Rocking R Ace Hardware in Waynesboro Virginia to look at Sun-Mar compost toilets. This is the toilet we hope to install in the bus. After an informative discussion with a store associate about Sun-Mar products, Linda suggested we grab a quick lunch before getting back on the road. About a block from the hardware store, there were three food trucks/trailers operating from a vacant lot. While the donut trailer grabbed my attention, Linda suggested we consider one of the other two trailers for lunch. Our options were Philly cheese steak sandwiches or tacos. We opted for tacos.
Oh my, these were some of the best tacos I have ever eaten. My TaKito, owned by Veronica and Horacio Pina, operates from a food truck park on Broad Street every Wednesday. They park at other locations the rest of the week and they offer catering services. Their menu includes tamales, burritos, quesadillas, and tacos.
We bought four tacos and split them. The four tacos were Chorizo (homemade!), steak, chicken, and cabeza. The ingredients were obviously fresh and everything was seasoned perfectly.
While the food was delicious, the cheerful service from Veronica really made our visit to My TaKito an adventure to remember. She not only explained the food choices in a very compelling manner, she made sure we were aware of their catering services and special dinner offerings.
If you find yourself in Waynesboro, Virginia – a beautiful small town in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley – I highly recommend finding the My Takito truck.
About those donuts, I walked next door to the Strites Donut trailer while Linda waited for our tacos to be made. In short order, I had two cinnamon sugar donuts in a bag and ready for a late afternoon snack. More about the donuts in a later post. For now, just take my advice and stop by one the Strites shops when visiting the Shenandoah Valley.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
