Since the food truck scene has swept Orlando, I have most anticipated trying the Korean BBQ Taco Box truck. I kept hearing how wonderful it was. At the food truck bazaars, they always had the longest line by far. Their fleet has even recently expanded to four trucks meaning they cover even more of Orlando at a time.
On Saturday Kevin spotted the truck in the Mills50 district, so we took a walk to get me the coveted food.
I ordered the spicy pork taco box, which I have heard is the most traditional and the most popular.
Parko wasn’t nearly as excited as I was while waiting for our food.
We walked home with our food, and I couldn’t get home fast enough. First of all, it was dang hot outside. But more importantly, the food smelled so delicious. Different spices perfumed out of the box making me hungrier and hungrier on our walk.
Finally, we got home, and I couldn’t believe how much food we had gotten for the price.
Inside was one generously sized taco, two fried cheese sushi rolls, a fried tofu block with teriyaki sauce, a chicken drumstick in a spicy glaze and a salad topped with ginger dressing.
I decided to work my way around the sides saving the taco for last. The ginger salad was better than any side salad I’ve had in a Japanese restaurant because it had big slices of onions and the ginger dressing was thick with a lot of flavor. I love when the ginger dressing is more of a paste than a liquid dressing. The tofu and sushi were both mild in flavor and very good. The drumstick was amazing with the perfect amount of spiciness. I was literally licking my fingers.
Finally, I ate the spicy pork taco, and it lived up to all the wonderful things everyone was saying. I wish I had five more. I can’t remember eating anything so flavorful. There were so many different spices and flavors. I have a feeling I’ll be craving this a lot more.
Recently, I’ve wanted to try to get back into running. Running has always been kind of a love/hate relationship for me. I’m just not very fast, and it’s difficult for me to build up distance. Lately temperatures outside have been condemning me to a treadmill and I’ve been so focused on strength training, so cardio has just been an afterthought. I would hop on a treadmill or the StairMaster for a little while just to say I had. But I decided that I didn’t want my cardio routine to slip like my strength routine had in the past, so I’m going to try to build up some running stamina. I know it will be frustrating at first, but hopefully I can still keep things interesting.
After my arms workout today, I tried Brittany’s Beginner’s Running Interval Treadmill Workout. It definitely got me huffing and puffing but in a good way. I’m proud that I completed it, and since I never get up to 6.5 on the treadmill, hopefully I’m getting stronger in the process. I think I need to stay on this level for a little while before trying her intermediate workout!
Any tips to give a much-needed kick in the butt to my running? I think I may start Couch to 5K and see how that goes.
