Well so much for our J.D. Salinger moment.This being the internet and all, not 30 minutes after I’d posted my mystery of the great 2011 Comic-Con Food Truck Burrito, someone on twitter had identified the truck and posted a picture of a half eaten lunch.

Green sauce and all. The truck in question is @sdstreeteats.
However the matter of the food trucks and Comic-Con has also become a bit more mysterious. In an unrelated tweet, it turns out there WILL be food trucks near Comic-Con:

HOWEVER, it seems SDstreeteats won’t be among them, as they told me:
@Comixace we are the answer, grt read, not sure whr u can find us yet, petco park asked $5k fee to vend this year, that’s a LOT of burritos!
— SD Street Eats (@SDStreetEats) July 7, 2012
Obviously, yet more of the jacking up of prices surrounding all things con. I’m not sure if $5k is a lot to set up in this kind of situation but…it sounds like a lot?
So that’s where we’re at. SD Street Eats has awesome burritos. I want an awesome burrito. They want to sell me an awesome burrito. But commercialism and civic zoning are conspiring to keep us apart.
