I recall one dungeons and dragons adventure where the party had to investigate the source of a local tavern's plentiful supply of dragon steak.

I think it turned out to be a regenerating purple worm,

My bad, coffee is the big deal on the facebook Traveller groups so I just figured it was a Traveller thing.

There's a 5e & Pathfinder 3rd party setting about a city that captured a tarrasque and makes a living chopping stuff out of it, while it regrows to provide a renewable source of items and food.

I can see a taco truck spaceship working on a world where food is available in one area but not so much in another. The spaceship loads up in the morning/overnight where food is available, heads quickly to the other place - far distant on the world, or perhaps a moon (or to the mainworld if food only grows on one of its moons) and serves up hot & fresh food. (Going to another nearby world might work too, but you'd need high Thrust to get there and back within a single day, not to mention spend some hours at each end serving & loading food.)

Doubtless there would be grocery stores and restaurants in this case. The taco truck's edge would be freshness of produce.

Keep this up and there'll be taco trucks on every LaGrange Point!

We actually have a discussion here about coffee.

Depends on how far you want to enculturate it.

Coffee houses used to be meeting places for men to discuss business, art, politics, possibly sport and who their current mistress was.

I believe their wives tried to petition to ban them.

By contrast, tea culture seems both more laid back, yet tries to adhere to any number of customs and traditions.

That got me thinking that I'd read something about field kitchens. Sure enough there's an entry in CT Striker Book 3 p.48 :-) Weight: 1 ton, Volume: 10m3, Cost: Cr1000
