Tacos Will Never Break Your Heart!!!

La Calaca LLC Menu

Tacos

Skirt Steak/ Arrachera

Succulent Freshly Cooked Inner Skirt Steak grilled and cooked to perfection. Cut up and placed in between a double stacked regular size tortilla.

Beef Birria/ Birria de Res

Melt in your mouth pulled beef. This is the Mexican version of pot roast, slow cooked for over 8 hours in a delicious blend of non-spicy pepper and incredible seasonings that will blow your mind. Full of juicy-ness. This is a taco you will need more than one napkin for!

Marinated Pork/ Al Pastor

Deliciously marinated pork in a guajillo pepper base (not spicy, just delicious) and pineapple chunks. An absolute must at any Mexican Fiesta.

Pulled Pork/ Carnitas

Incredibly Juicy and Crisped up on the grill right before serving these tacos have the taste of Michoacan Mexico in every single bite! If you like carnitas be prepared to fall in love. Don't make the mistake of only ordering 1.

Chicken/Pollo

Fajita style Chicken, well seasoned and cooked in larger chunks. No shredded chicken here! We like our tacos to be deliciously filling.

Veggie/ Vegetariano

Now veggie is a kicker, you have to take a gamble with us. We will more than likely work this out with the coordinator before your event but the choices here are endless from, smothered poblano peppers with sourcream and cheese (rajas con queso), to battered cauliflower in a tomato sauce (Coliflor capiada) that will have you asking for a second round. Filling and Delicious is how we love our tacos

Let's put some meat on those bones, Chicago! In particular, we suggest the steak, chicken, and pulled pork on the menu at La Calaca, the taco truck serving Windy City foodies their finest Mexican cuisine backed by years of passion. Run by Vero and Jonathan, whose extensive experience in the hospitality industry has made them passionate about food and Mexican culture, this taco truck is not only designed to showcase their work but also to educate and inspire others

And this is the finest inspiration you can fit in a tortilla, whether traditional corn or enriched quesataco style. Fill it with arrachera skirt steak or birria de res. Load up on al pastor, or, for the vegetarians, smothered poblano peppers, all perfectly seasoned with onions, cilantro, lime, and salsa. And of course, if you want something extra fresh, this is the only truck around to serve Walking Chilaquiles, with a fried egg and cheese, sour cream and green salsa slathered onto a pile of tortilla chips then sprinkled with onions and cilantro. Add a little extra flavor to your next event when you book La Calaca to drop by. This food truck is ready to serve greater Chicago, so don't wait for their schedule to fill up; book today!
