SOBT Latin Food Truck Crawl, Part 1

This past Friday night we explored the food trucks along South Orange Blossom Trail. I had heard there was a grouping of them at a placed they called Comida Latina, but when we tried to find it we only discovered single trucks in separate parking lots. Later after talking to some of the truck owners we found out Code Enforcement had split them up, none are allowed to be in the same parking lot it seems. It actually works out fine because many of them are very close together, only a few parking lots away, you can do a bit of a food truck crawl, try a couple things at the first one, walk down to the next parking lot and there is another, and so on.


The first we tried was Arepas El Gran Saman, all the Arepas were $5 and they had a decent number of selections some with just cheese and others with meat and cheese. We got the Pernil(roast pork) Arepa with cheese. The cheese was nice white strongly flavored shards, I'm not sure what kind but it was good. There were 4 different kinds of sauce Ajo(Garlic), Ketchup/Mayo combo, a yellowish one, but the best one was green and spicy though I could never figure out what it was made of. They were pretty busy when we got there about 10:15 pm but the line moved quickly.

2 parking lots north was Dominican Chimi. This truck wasn't as busy so we got a chance to talk to the owner. His name was Luis and he was an older guy, he's the one who told us about how the trucks got split up by Code Enforcement and how it was really nice before when they were all together it created a little sense of community and the families loved it.




We tried a couple of different Pinchos(meat skewers) and his Chimi sandwich. His sauce bottles were more oil based than the last one. The Pinchos were spiced well and not overcooked, they had an Adobo/Garlic salty flavor, they were served with a small piece of grilled bread which was nice. The Chimi sandwich was excellent, it had a white sauce, lettuce and meat and I really enjoyed it.

Third we went to the next parking lot north, La Tripleta subs and more..., this truck was in front of a restaurant of the same name, there was a large line to order from this truck and we waited about 15-20 minutes. We ordered a tripleta sandwich, a couple corn fritters(Sorullitos de Maiz), and fritter stuffed with ground beef(Alcapurria).


The only sauce they had here was the Ketchup/Mayo combo that all these trucks seem to have. The Alcapurria was not impressive, I've had Alcapurrias in Puerto Rico so nothing really compares. The Sorullito was a better but I would have prefered an Ajo sauce like the Arepa guy had. The best thing here was the sandwich, we cut it up in three but that made it pretty messy. The Tripleta was good but Dominican Chimi's sandwich was better.

Finally we were all pretty full but we wanted to check out another truck further south from the other 3 that we had spied on the drive in. Turns out this truck had an unexpected cuisine, Peruvian! This truck is called "Las 4 Estaciones"(The Four Seasons).

I have a good fried who is from Peru so I have tried a number of Peruvian dishes over the years. There aren't a lot of Peruvian restaurants in Orlando so when I find one I immediately text my friend about it. He was pretty happy when I told him. I was also quite excited because this truck served something I have never found in Orlando, Anticuchos. When I used to quiz my friend about Peruvian food he would always mention Anticuchos which are skewered beef hearts usually cooked over a fire or grilled. I did find them once in Washington DC and they were very tasty. I was much too full from the previous 3 trucks to try them here but I will be back on SOBT Latin Food Truck Crawl, Part 2!



I did find a little room to try their Flan(Leche Asada) which was not as sweet as I'm used to but it was very good in it's own way. You could really tell they roasted the Flan in an oven and it made a nice thick dark shell on top. Also they served it in a glass bowl which is a unique investment for a food truck. We also tried a small Guava Batita(fruit shake). It was decent and pretty sweet but I'd prefer it more milky, I think it was just fruit and ice.


The owner, Juan, was real excited to talk to us and we asked him all about his different dishes. They had a picture of their signature Las 4 Estaciones sandwich on the truck that looked super amazing. I believe it was a pork cutlet with sausage slices on top and a number of other toppings. Since this was the truck we got to try the least amount of food from, it's the one I'm most excited to go back and eat from. Juan also told us about at least 4 more food trucks further south, it was getting really late and there was just no more room in our bellies, but we will be back to explore some more one weekend real soon, maybe you can join us?! :)

  18. A ideia de uma casa assombrada com temas sexuais deixou-me mais excitado do que queria admitir. Envergonhei-me de querer que a Evelyn ganhasse a nossa aposta. Queria ir ver o deboche pessoalmente, e queria uma forma de o fazer onde não tivesse de admitir que queria ir.

    A Evelyn sempre encontrou uma maneira de me dar uma desculpa para fazer as coisas que eu sabia que estavam erradas. Como ela disse que eu tinha de aceitar a aposta dela, senão não estava a honrar o papá. Ela era tão inteligente assim. Perguntava-me se ela sabia o quanto eu gostava disso nela.

    Mas a coisa maravilhosa desta aposta era que se eu ganhasse, ela cantaria. A primeira vez que ouvi Evelyn cantar há poucos meses, quase chorei pela beleza da sua voz. E quando a vi, a paixão na cara dela enquanto cantava de amor... Vergonhosamente, imaginei que era a mim que ela cantava.

    Nunca consegui decidir, desde então, se era bom ou mau que ela nunca cantasse quando sabia que alguém estava a ouvir. Pelo lado bom, era mais fácil fingir que ela era só uma amiga. A forma como ela cantava afetou-me, não sei se conseguiria esconder a minha adoração. Do lado mau, não a ouvi cantar a não ser por acidente. Passei mais tempo do que ela imaginava a esconder-se, a ouvir a sua voz gloriosa.
