Ogden Taco Stands- Mekenna Malan
Out of all the many food options downtown,nothing screams “Ogden” quite like the tacostands between 25
and 26
street. They aretotally fast, cheap, authentic and delicious.The carts are stocked with several condiments,drinks, and roasted jalapeños. What makesthe taco stands so great is the fact that theyare native only to Ogden. They are a staple toO-Town culture, not only known but loved byits residents. This past year, Ogden Highhired one of the taco carts to cater their seniorparty – could there possibly be another foodoption so down-to-earth with the downtownway of life? I’m convinced.I am pleased but slightly embarrassed to admitthat, being an Ogden resident my whole life, Itook my very first excursion to the taco cartsthis past week (I grew up with a mother whoinsisted the meat would give me salmonella).Every time I would tell my peers that I hadnever eaten one of Ogden’s famous tacos, theynever failed to gape at me in disbelief. Withthat said, I had high expectations, and yet Iwas still pleasantly surprised. The vendor waskind; the meat was thoroughly cooked, on thesalty side yet still yummy. It made my day tosit in the Municipal Gardens downtown withmy chicken tacos and bottled orange soda.Also, the most important detail for me afterbeing brainwashed my whole life, I felt greatafter eating them. I didn’t throw up orcontract salmonella. Hallelujah!I’m using this as a local piece to call out thefew Ogden residents who, like me only a weekago, have never experienced the joy of tacosfrom the carts located on Washingtonfrom the carts located on WashingtonBoulevard. Don’t be afraid of them, and theywon’t disappoint. I’m also thoroughlyconvinced that you aren’t a true Ogden nativeuntil you try them. (Hint: Go on Tuesdays, andyou can get two for exactly $1.00)
