Even in the noncomformist world of food trucks, Dia de los Takos is an unorthodox operation. There’s the name, an intentional misspelling that chef Dominic Valenzuela applied to help set his truck apart from the competition.
And then there are the hours. The truck operates only three days a week during the winter, each time at a different Marble Brewery location.
On Thursdays, Dia de los Takos sets up from noon to 8 p.m. at Marble’s flagship location, at Marble and First NW. The taproom, a two-story structure with steel girders projecting over the rooftop patio, has ample seating, and there’s free parking across the street.
