GromNom – Juan More Taco – Harlingen, TX

I am on a mission to eat at all the Food Trailers in my surrounding area for lunch. This mission is part of the all new GromNom food series.

This GromNom trip took me to a food trailer parked inside a used car dealership towards the center of town. Juan More Taco is its catchy name.  I had seen this trailer a few times while in the area but never considered it for lunch. That was until a new coworker, who is a recent transplant from Tyler, TX, recommended the spot.  He raved about the Trompo, so for lunch, I hopped on the Grom and headed that way.

It is in a pretty big parking lot so they have a nice setup. Lots of tables under a blue canopy. (The blue canopy gave my pictures a blue tint that was very filterish. I tried removing it). Even though there was lots of seating, I was the only one there for some time.

I ordered the Trompo, but was told they were out so I went with an order of Fajita Tacos. An order of tacos at these places is usually 6 corn tortilla tacos. Also known as Street Tacos. Along with your meat of choice, they are topped with Cilantro, White Cheese, Avocado, and Onions. (No onions for me though).

As I was waiting for my food, another customer came along. We got to talking and he too raved about the Trompo. He loved that they are served with slices of pineapple. Trompo, is cooked in a red sauce and with pineapple, but is rarely served with pineapple. I really really wanted to try the Trompo! Luckily for me, as the girl brought me my chips, she told me they did have some Trompo after all!

They only had enough for a half order, so I went with half Fajita and half Trompo. Amazing! The Trompo lived up to all the hype. Very tender, very juicy, very pineapplie! I have been back since and it was still so good.

3 Weeks On The Grom

This week marks three weeks of Grom life. I am loving it! I am also getting a tan, which I’m not to found of,  but hopefully I’ll be getting a riding jacket which help with that and with safety if I take a fall.

Placing my order
First time at a drive thru!
Drove to some shade
Used my cargo net to strap the burgers down.

This third week is also the first full week I was able to take the Grom to work. No rain!

Drive Thru On The Grom

So, during the work week, I drive thru a lot. I’ve been going over different options to carry my food back home. My backpack would probably squash my food. I saw some cargo nets online so I picked one up at Walmart. A Coleman MadDog for $4. I think it might work. 

Week 1: My Grom and I

Last Friday we drove up to Georgetown to pick up a 2017 Bright Yellow Grom, and I have been loving it. I started off riding around the neighborhood to make sure I still remembered how to drive a motorcycle. It took a couple attempts, and a few embarrasing moments at the stop sign, but I finally got my groove. I am no longer fearful of stop signs and red lights!

I didn’t want to spend any more money so I went on the hunt for a used Helmet at the pawnshops. I visited about 5 pawn shops and found one for $59! It fits really well, and did not seem to be that used. Gave it a good once over with some cleaning products and hit the road with it. I am already looking at purchasing a brand new helmet from the same brand later on. Vega. 

Because of the holiday, it was a short work week. I was only able to take the Grom to work two days of the three we worked because of Rain. On Friday, I only took the Grom after lunch. My General Manager even gave me permission to park the Grom right on the curb so that it can get some shade. That was a huge relief as I wasn’t sure where to park the Grom. 

Now I just need Grom Friends!

Missing my Moto X

The first gen Moto X was the best non-nexus phone I ever owned. Not only was it practically Pure Android, it had some great hands free features. Now that I riding around in the Grom, I bought a Moto Hint to send me notifications to my ear. BUT, since it was an impulse buy at a pawn shop I didn’t do my research. Turns out all the cool hands free stuff for the Hint is for Moto X phones, and probably other Moto phones. I am currently looking for homebrew bluetooth apps to get the same experience as the Moto X with the Moto Hint. For now, it’s just a simple bluetooth earpiece. It does send my Audiobooks to my ear though. That’s cool.
