This weekend, I was delighted to pass by the grand opening of Loxicha, a new Mexican food truck situated behind Murphy’s pub. Not having had dinner yet, we had to pickup a few plates to take home. While we waited for our food, I got talking to one of the Cortez-Baños family. They are longtime Wallingford residents and are not new to the food business. They own another truck near Northgate.
Loxicha is a place in Oaxaca from where the family hails. The menu selections are enticing: we went for the carnitas, fish tacos and huevos a la Mexicana.
The tortillas were divine and the mild green sauce was a lovely topping. It was a toss-up for me whether the fish tacos or the huevos were my favorite. After we had ordered, we noticed the grasshoppers listed under side dishes. Maybe next time!
Loxicha will be open from 10am – 10pm Monday – Friday to start. Cash only for now.
This sounds awesome!
The tlayudas are my favorite dish from them – grab a friend (or two) and split!
