I waddled down to El Sancho for lunch (which was awesome, as usual: tacos, tamales and some potato, pepper, zucchini salad business over rice with some roughage on the side) and was met with some surprising news, which I'm still split on.
It seems Joel is leaving his post on 211 NW Greenwood Ave (next to the Blacksmith and his bro cart, Soupcon) to take a job at Pono Farms, a local farm that provides meat for their casual restaurant and for their specialty butcher shop. Sucks for us, good for Pono and Joel. He expects to wheel the cart away the first week of February.
We're obviously psyched for him and his new venture—congrats Joel. Annnndddd ... he said he'd still roll out the food cart on a part-time basis, so check back and keep you eyes peeled for the some of the most authentic and delectable south-of-the-border eats in town.
