Señor Tacombi, Playa del Carmen

Riviera Maya, Mexico, North America: The Senor Tacombi truck in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, serves tacos, tortas, and smoothies.
Calle 12 between Avenidas 5 and 10
Playa del Carmen
Mexico's insider take:

Tempted to try the street food but afraid of ghastly gastro repercussions? Head to Señor Tacombi. The once-roving taco operation has put down roots on Calle 12, Playa del Carmen's busy nightlife strip. The outdoor stand is a riot of color, with a kitchen operated out of an avocado-hued VW bus with the top sawed off. Line up behind the crowds, and order a carnitas taco. And one with cochinita pibil. And one with flank steak, peppers, and onions. Actually, do yourself a favor and get one of each (plus a torta for good measure). Tuck into your spread at one of the vintage diner tables with chairs reupholstered in bright orange plaids and sunshine yellow florals. It's the cutest and tastiest spot in Playa del Carmen.—Colleen Clark
