100_1406 Eating in Translation guy has been lurking around Queens and here is what  he found in the way of trucks toting tasty food…

Tia Julia
Parked on Benham St. just south of Roosevelt Ave., Elmhurst, Queens
917-757-1633
11:00-10:00; closed Thursday

tlacoyo, which resembles an unsealed, pan-fried turnover stuffed with beans (first two photos below; $2.50), or meat and potatoes, and dressed with sour cream, hot sauce, and grated cheese…and much more

El Idolo–  Parked on the south side of Roosevelt Ave. near 104th St., Corona, Queens (One of several trucks with this name)

…serves a taco arabe ($3), in which the tortilla is rolled around grainy, flavorful, chipotle-sauced pork. Rather than a corn tortilla, this Pueblan variation on the top-loaded taco employs a slightly thicker, wheat-flour wrap — introduced, say many stories that seem to spring from the same source, by an Iraqi emigrant in the 1930s.
