Vietnamese tacos by Nom Nom

Mention Asian tacos to most people and you'll get blank stares.  My brother was raving about them in Los Angeles and sent us on a hunt for Asian food trucks.  How fortunate that Nom Nom and Kogi were both parked in Orange County on Saturday.  We munched on Nom Nom at Costa Mesa's SoCo farmer's market.  David Kien, Nom Nom's man behind the wheel on Great Food Truck Race, even served us our banh mi.

The tacos contain similar grilled meat you find on bun at Vietnamese restaurants.  Mmm! Thumbs up to Nom Nom's tofu banh mi, too. It's amazing what tofu can do.
