Mexican food trucks planning storefronts in Wicker Park is officially a thing. Following last month's news of 5411 Empanadas' restaurant on North, where construction is now underway, there's news of Tamale Spaceship signing a lease at 1341 N. Damen. The whimsical food truck, where lucha libre-masked men serve items like "space" guacamole in addition to the tamale selections, is moving into the former home of Gratto Pizzeria.
The upcoming Wicker Park location is the second Tamale Spaceship storefront in the works—they're also planning to open a Pilsen location sometime next year. DNAinfo reports that they'll open on Damen "within a couple months." Stay tuned to see what tricks are up their sleeves for the opening.
