Our Story

An Elusive Taco

The birth of Thirst & Growl (TnG) was out of necessity for the love of tacos– al pastor tacos to be precise.


After finding out for the third time in a row that his neighborhood’s favorite taco stand hadn’t setup for the night, our co-founder, Mosses, needed a way to be notified when the local street food vendor (shall we call them mobile restaurateur) was going to be around.


Hence the birth of Thirst & Growl.

A Postulation

The premise was simple. Foodies who are passionate about street food vendors, and cooks who are enamored about sharing their specialties and latest creations in different neighborhoods– now they can do so with a simple app.
