Food Trucks

This food truck might have been featured on an episode of Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmerman, but there's nothing bizarre about the authentic Puerto Rican food it doles out in the South Bronx every day. The trailer exterior doesn't leave much to be expected, but inside, owner Angel Jimenez is roasting up pork that's tender, rich, and juicy. You're there for the various cuts of pork, but the octopus salad and empanada-like pastelillos filled with chicken, beef, crab, or shrimp are must-orders as well.
