Fan Review: Habanero Sombrero Food Truck Review by Debbie Lount

See her original post here: Habanero Sombrero Food Truck Review


I have never written a food truck review before, but the tacos at Habanero Sombrero today on Broadway were the BEST and they deserve to be shared!

I am a huge Food Network fan and I have watched plenty of shows on interesting and creative food trucks. Winnipeg never had anything so yummy until this year. I do not work downtown, so I do not have the ability to walk out my office into food land heaven, instead I drove 20 minutes from my house with my 4 and 6 year old in tow. Well worth the trip and super fun for the kids.

I ordered 2 chicken tacos ($6.00) on a 6-inch flour tortilla. (there is the option of a corn tortilla as well). I loaded my tacos with homemade salsa fresca. A hard decision since there was also Salsa Verde, Pineapple salsa and Habanero salsa. I also ordered the Ay Carumba cookie.

The staff in the truck were super friendly. The owner even gave the kids Habanero Sombrero pins to wear. My son thought this was the coolest thing since he loves the logo of the pepper playing guitar.

We walked to a place to sit. I took a picture of my food. I took one dainty little bite then I then proceeded to INHALE my tacos! I knew I wasn’t being very ladylike and I didn’t even look up into the street in case someone I knew walked/drove by. I have never had anything so good!! I just couldn’t get enough!

As for the cookie…I seriously thought I was the cookie making queen…but I gladly give that title to the maker of the Ay Carumba cookie. I was told it’s a double chocolate cookie with a bit of cayenne pepper. (Chocolate and spice! Yes please!) I saved half of it for my husband, but I’m not sure it’s going to make it too him.

I will gladly be back to Habanero Sombrero to inhale more of their delicious tacos! Thank you so much for an amazing lunch!!
