Fremont definitely has some hidden gems, and we were lucky enough to stumble upon El Halal Amigos, which is an amazing food truck serving a menu of completely halal Mexican food! Everything we tried was mouthwatering, and Executive Chef Hisham is one of the nicest people around. They have everything from tacos to burritos and nachos, as well as some really refreshing drinks made with fresh fruit. You’ll want to make sure to get there a little early because there’s usually a line when they open, especially when they offer birria tacos, which is usually one night out of the week. Now that we’ve gotten that stuff out of the way, let’s jump into the food!
Tacos Street Style
The tacos come in a set of three with corn tortillas and you can choose the meat you’d like in each. They offer suadero (beef brisket), carne asada, nopales (cactus), and pollo al pastor, and they’re all topped with onions and cilantro. We definitely recommend the carne asada! You can add a side of one of their salsas, but we prefer the NAR sauce. But watch out because it can be pretty spicy!
The Nar Burrito from El Halal Amigos was, by far, our favorite! It’s fried chimichanga style and is filled with your choice of meat, rice, beans, salsa, NAR Sauce, sour cream, guacamole and cheese. They put in grated cheese in addition to nacho cheese, which literally brings everything together in the best way.
El Halal Guys doesn’t mess around when it comes to quality ingredients, and their strawberry fresca is the perfect example of that. It’s made with real strawberries and is possibly the most refreshing drink we’ve had in awhile.
