We all went through the food truck frenzy. Some trucks were good, some were your typical roach coach. Some, like The Lime Truck were great and made enough money to start a brick and mortar – TLT Food.
TLT describes itself as “new American cuisine” but I think it’s a bit more Asian fusion. Definitely flavorful, sometimes spicy, always delicious, TLT has great options no matter if you want brunch, lunch, dinner, meat, vegetarian or drinks.
The first thing you have to try is their lemonade of the day. It’s never just plain lemonade, its different juices, different mixes, and they are good. Guava is my favorite. Next I suggest trying as many tacos as you can. I love getting an order of three different ones to taste test and always switch up my options.
If you are going for brunch then the breakfast burrito is something you absolutely cannot miss. It’s a bit spicy but the steak is so good, and the guac smooths things over just enough to survive the heat. If you go for lunch, I highly recommend the ahi tuna…anything. I really enjoyed the garlic noodles with the ahi. The portions are extremely large so feel free to share.
4.5/5 for TLT Foods because it’s unfortunately located at a mall (Irvine Spectrum) which kills the ambiance, but the food is fantastic and there are so many options that everyone will be happy. And of course they have a taco Tuesday!
