While it’s pretty obvious what’s on the menu from the name Springs’ Street Tacos, there’s actually more to it. In fact, our visit this week was to check out the new Bowls on the menu which are in keeping with one of the latest food trends in Disney World.
Your choice of bowls is between Steak, Fish, Chicken, and Vegetarian. Accompaniments vary slightly, as you see on the menu. For instance, the Fish Bowl is complete with a tropical fruit salsa and red cabbage among the ingredients, and the Vegetarian Bowl comes with black beans, roasted corn and peppers in the mix.
It was a Steak Bowl for us which, like the Chicken Bowl, is served with yellow rice, avocado crème, pico de gallo, queso fresco, jalapeño, cilantro, radish and lime.
What stands out at Springs’ Street Tacos — and this is typical from our visits to the Disney Food Trucks — is the super fresh quality of the ingredients, giving everything a nice, bright flavor and zip. The Steak Bowl is no exception.
And the meat was nice and tender, too.
Of course, we couldn’t leave Springs’ Street Tacos without a taco (or two), could we?
For the Taco Combo, you get your choice of any two from the same options as the bowls: Steak, Fish, Chicken, and Vegetarian. We ordered up a steak taco and a fish taco.
The funny thing is, the ingredients don’t really vary from the bowls to the taco (save for the soft tortilla shell, of course). But the ingredients just seem to come together better in the tacos. Plus, there’s the obvious bonus that you can try two of the four varieties, if you like.
You’ll typically find Fantasy Fare Food Truck and Springs’ Street Tacos in Exposition Park on the West Side of Disney Springs (though they can move around, of course). And, by the way, you can still see the beautiful artwork on the Springs’ Street Tacos Truck from when it operated as Namaste Cafe 🙂 .
No matter the truck, there are two pretty consistent things we’ve noticed with nearly every visit. One, there are hardly ever any long lines to speak of. Due to the lack of lines, we think, there’s no need to have dishes prepared in advance, so dishes are made to order which is one of the things (aside from the ingredients themselves) that lends to some really fresh-tasting food.
The flip side of that brings us to our second point: we’ve also noticed a fairly long wait after placing our orders as well. Since the wait usually results in a tasty, fresh dish, we haven’t minded too much. But if you’re hoping to catch a movie at AMC at a certain time or just get back to shopping ASAP, you’ll want to know in advance.
For now, we’re signing off from Springs’ Street Tacos! Happy Taco THURSDAY to you!!
