Tasty, fun, filling vegan fusion Taco Food truck

Falacos = falafels tacos; delicious vegan fusion food truck, TexMex style. Tasty Organic vegan tacos in Houston's far northwest suburbs, where vegan food can be scarce. Fairly new food truck based out of Conroe, TX, followed on social media for daily locations. They were in the Woodlands the day we drove north from H-town, and the food was well worth the drive!
Usually 2-3 falafel/balls combinations are offered daily, with a couple of appetizers & desserts, and a flavored water and kombucha.
Falafel menu rotates every couple of weeks.
The Amazeballs sold out before out late afternoon arrival.
My non-vegan lunch companion enjoyed the Paulie, an Italian style combo of garlic hummus, 2 falafel balls, tomato gravy, mushrooms, spinach & parsley topped with "noots" (vegan Parmesan made with nutritional yeast) served on a corn tortilla.
I feasted on the tasty Texas BBQ - dill pickle hummus, 2 falafel balls, BBQ sauce, Cole slaw, fried onions, pickles & jalapeños, on a corn tortilla.
We both enjoyed the bottomless strawberry & lemon infused waters; pleasantly thirst quenching on a warm southeast Texas afternoon.
Dessert was the nutty chocolate balls; cashews, coconut, dates, maple syrup, cacao blended & rounded into bite-sizes melt in one's mouth morsels of deliciousness, topped with slivers of almonds.
Service was friendly, quick & with big smiles. Inexpensive; lunch with drinks & dessert for two came to $25.
While portions satisfyingly filling for lunch, might want more for dinner, or start with the appetizers offered.
Picnic tables in the parking area for seating, and trash bins for recycling & compost.

Tried the Amazeballs - very aptly named! Baked quinoa patties topped with garlic hummus, banana peppers, mango chutney & smoked paprika. Yes, worth the wait.
Dined on the delightfully delicious kimchee platter at Conroe Farmers Market, definitely worth the drive.

Pros: 100% vegan, Delicious, Affordable

Cons: Not a brick & mortar, Limited hours

Great balls!

Falacos food truck is a vegan, gluten free, falafel ball taco truck based out of a Houston suburb. It doesn't often make appearances in the "inner loop" of H-Town but on Saturday they were at the Heights Epicurean Farmer's Market. Their full menu includes 7 different falafel taco options, but on any given day they are serving up 2 (and some sides, dessert balls and smoothies). I ordered the Texas, a tortilla shell stuffed with dill hummus, 2 falafel balls, fried jalapeños and onions topped with a BBQ sauce. This was insanely good...who knew that falafel is the perfect vehicle to serve up southern flavors. The shell was perfectly crispy, and the toppings well chosen (for all the heat averse out there, it wasn't really spicy, so don't ask to hold the fried jalapenos!). So yum. My one issue is the price point, it is $7 per taco (albeit big, it is still a single taco), and with tax and tip it was $9. While these are delicious, I would need to eat 2 for a meal, and that is $$$. If the truck offered something like a 2 tacos for $10 deal, I would be all over that. Either way, with that awesome, delicious twist on a taco, viva la falaco!

Pros: Excellent food
