Random stop in Sanger on Highway 180 because a sign said tacos ahead. The Morales taco truck is parked out in front of a gas station, a scene all too typical and often rewarding.
I was actually on my way out to lunch at the School House a couple miles up the road, but it was only 11:15 and I had been up since 6am, so I had a single carnitas taco. Piled high with extra pico de gallo, the carnitas underneath were laden with silky fat. Not chunks of fat. The meat itself was silky, my guess is, it’s sitting in a lot of pork fat. The heat of the pico was good. The corn tortilla was the larger variety, rather than taqueria style. But everything seemed to work together, the silkiness of the carnitas really carried the taco.
