Just a horse doing some shopping at a couple Upper Valley retailers, NBD

Napoleon did some light shopping in the Upper Valley this weekend in an effort to promote High Horses Therapeutic Riding Program, which was previously located in Hartford and now operates out of Sharon.

First stop: Tractor Supply, where he sampled some of the dog leashes and considered buying a kayak but thought better of it when he realized it would have been an impulse buy.

Next up: Our favorite Upper Valley taco truck, Taco’s Tacos, because even four-legged shoppers need to refuel the tank.

Read our previous report on Taco’s Tacos.


And lastly, picking up some last-minute items and making new friends at West Lebanon Feed & Supply. Good job, Napoleon.

The new food truck Taco’s Tacos is in Leb full-time starting this week

Eduardo Moran says this is his first full week (Monday through Friday) joining the food truck crowd at Colburn Park since he debuted Taco’s Tacos in this sweet little minty-fresh camper earlier this summer.

A couple quick lil’ nuggets, most of which I learned while gobbling up my first two Taco’s Tacos tacos (tacos!) this afternoon:

1. Eduardo graduated from Lebanon High, Class of ’05. He’s never run a food truck like this before but has worked in kitchens all his life, he said.

2. He opens up shop about 11:30 a.m. and is there until about 4:30 in the afternoon or so — or until he runs out of tacos.

3. The sign was created by local artist Brian Barthelmes, a tattooer at Vintage Soul Tattoo in White River Junction.

4. This taco holding tacos is his logo, so that’s obviously great.

5. Eduardo’s got a simple, straightforward menu, which is pretty much exactly what I want in a food truck, personally. Today’s board had three kinds of tacos — beef, chicken and black bean, each of them $3 apiece. The black bean tacos are available vegetarian or vegan and are super good (verified).

6. He lets you know when he’s starting to run out of tacos, which is key.

7. Taco’s Tacos joins a pretty neat little crew of food trucks downtown these days. Today it included Boisvert’s Curbside Kitchen and a hot dog stand. (Phnom Penh Sandwich Station, which we wrote about when it debuted last year, used to make the rounds, but now has a brick-and-mortar store down the street.)

8. People. are. pumped.
