Minwaukee, WI: New Food Truck – Haute Taco, the Haute Wheels Division

By Carol Deptolla | Journal Sentinel

A new food truck from the Brookfield restaurant  Haute Taco has been making the rounds in Milwaukee.

Haute Wheels launched May 5 — Cinco de Mayo — and has been hitting Food Truck Fridays at Cathedral Square in downtown Milwaukee, Brady St. and spots outside the Chase and US Bank towers, among other places.

On Thursday, May 19, it will be one of the trucks assembled for Mobile Days at the Research Park in Wauwatosa. That takes place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Crowne Plaza’s overflow parking lot on Innovation Drive.

The truck’s ever-changing location is announced on its Facebook page. Blake Bengsch, the manager of Haute Wheels and the culinary director at Haute Taco, said a second truck is in the works; one will travel around Milwaukee while the other hits the Brookfield area.

The menu has four kinds of tacos and burritos — chicken breast, beef short rib, pork carnitas with shoulder and belly, and mushroom with asparagus and tofu — and a couple of items not found at the restaurant — Strauss veal chorizo quesadilla and torta, with a choice of meat.
