Mysterious New Taco Truck for St. Louis? [Updated 2x]

Driving around the city this morning and early afternoon, I spotted a new -- to me, at least -- food truck. Tacomovil was painted across the back of the truck in big letters, so I assume that's the truck's name.

Actually, I spotted it twice: first, heading westbound on Market Street; then, half an hour later, cruising by the Wells Fargo campus at Olive Street and Jefferson Avenue. I wasn't able to snap a picture, but it's the usual food truck size, white with (some) red lettering.

A cursory search of Google, Facebook and Twitter hasn't yielded any more information (aside from a Facebook page for a "TacoMovil" in Houston).

Anyone else seen this out and about or know whether it is, in fact, new? Anyone tried it?

Update: (Wednesday, March 21, 1:30 p.m.) You guys rock.

Thanks to your comments below and on Twitter, we've learned that Tacomovil offers tacos, tortas, quesadillas and burritos, all with your choice of meat (chicken, steak or pork al pastor).

What's more, Tacomovil has a Facebook page as TacoTruckSTL. According to this page, in addition to lunch-hour stops, it has regular stops at Dante's (3221 Olive Street; 314-652-2369) every Friday and Saturday from 11 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. and at Club Viva! (408 North Euclid Avenue; 314-361-0322) every Thursday 11 p.m.-1:30 a.m.

Update #2: (Thursday, March 22, 11:25 a.m.) And Tacomovil is on Twitter, too, as @tacotruckstl.

You can take a further step to buy even used taco trailer, which will significantly cut costs. Strengthen this business, there are many cost-saving ideas, which is to do your homework before hand, so you do not let costly mistakes.

This truck is parked overnight in South City- you can see the truck parked when driving down 55 southbound right after Holly Hills before Loughborough.


Tried it today.  It was no Vallesena but it was a good cheap lunch Downtown.  Two dollars for a taco, instead of three from the white people taco truck around the corner, served traditional style.  They were parked at City Garden and there were lines at the other trucks but it seemed like this truck looked too sketchy for your average downtown office drone.  Once again Ian you are beating the yelpers to stuff that should be in their wheelhouse.
