I had heard that they served fish tacos, but did not have a clue what to expect.
For $7.00 I tried what they call The Kraken which is 2 "tacos" - a beer batter fish filet topped with shredded red cabbage & pico de gallo, served on a couple of cold corn tortillas.
They all wore tee shirts that said on the back:
"it's not just good...it's VELLEE GOOD! "
The portion size was small - I almost wished I would have ordered something else to go along with it. The presentation was good, however I would have preferred to have it in a box that I could close for the walk back to the office. Onlookers jealously peered at it as I walked back up the street.
The crunch of the battered fish was a nice contrast to the cold corn tortillas & the toppings were surprisingly flavorful, enough so that I though a portion size of 3 tacos would have been perfect for lunch.
I may have missed the boat with my order because as I stood waiting for my lunch a number of dishes quickly sold out: The Dragon Melt ( a Quesadilla), one of their Burritos, and one of the Baugette sandwiches.
It peaked my taste buds enough to go back another day & give one of the other dishes a try as you know a woman can not nosh on Lobster rolls alone!
I did appreciate that they made their social presence known with the Twitter & Facebook buttons on their truck. If your are interested in viewing their menu - click Vellee Deli & check out their website. I'm following them on Twitter & you can also @VelleeDeli.
