A silver lining to the Katrina story

New Orleans CityBusiness -- The Business Newspaper of Metropolitan New Orleans:
"Jorge Sanchez and his Hispanic friends from Houston, now working and living in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, were tired of eating fast food every day.

'They tell me all they eat is hamburgers, chicken, chicken and more chicken. They missed their tacos, burritos and the food they’re used to eating where they’re from,' Sanchez said.

So, six months ago, Sanchez began offering a cure for the cravings.

He and his father, Fidel Sanchez, run Taqueria Sanchez el Sabrosito, a family owned taco truck business in Houston."

This is indeed a lucky stroke. The only thing that Houston had and that New Orleans was missing was the taco trailers. It's great food at a great price. Highly recommended by The Cheapskate Gourmand.
