Is your lunch crippling you?

Have you ever attended a Jewish rave? Are your thoughts crippling you? Have you ever had a gordita from the El Idolo taco truck that parks on Sixth Avenue near West 4th. Pete's responses: "No."; "On occasion.; "Yes." The "little fat one" is a thick cornbread tortilla that's cut lengthwise and stuffed with white cheese, lettuce, tomato, and a lot of fatty pieces of pork. Pete recommends drizzling some of their sweet/spicy red chili salsa--cuidado: the s'tang (sweet tang) will sneak up on you. It's a far cry from the version that they sell at the Bell; it's more like a little mini sandwich. (True story: Way back in the day, Pete and a certain person who shall rename nameless since she is now a well-respected food writer would do a weekly Sunday pilgrimage to the Bell; they ordered so much food that they would order an extra drink just so the Bell employees wouldn't think they were gluttons.) Pete also enjoyed the carnitas tacos, they're the double tortilla kind, and they're served with cilantro, chopped onion, and radishes on top, and a little lime wedge on the side. Pete shall return to the truck again, maybe one late night after attending a Jewish rave.
