Dochos Hot Off The Press – Food Truck

DochosMenu

I know you’re thinking it…who in the hell named this truck?! It’s just terrible. I’m going to give them a pass though, as their specialty is clearly a fryer and not marketing.

Anyways, I have the Monte Castro Sandwich – Hot Pressed Cuban Sandwich (Ham, Salami, pulled pork, swiss cheese, pickles, special sauce) battered and deep fried in a sweet, spicy batter. For dessert, I have the Fried Oreos. The should probably just call the sandwich “Heart Attack on a Plate” and the Oreos “Coronary Waiting to Happen.”

This sandwich is DELICIOUS, which is pretty custom with anything deep fried. However, I have to give them points for flavor. I don’t really like Cubans, but something about the batter, coupled with the extra Sriracha (the spicy component) on top just worked.

I didn’t prefer the Oreos, but they weren’t nasty. I’m just not much of a sweets eater. My coworkers all tried them (an order has 4 or 5) and then moaned and walked away. That’s usually a sign of something that’s good, but too fat to justify eating on a large scale.

I recommend you try this food truck…BUT ONLY ONCE. And only if you walk almost a mile to get to it, as my coworkers and I did, or if you’re splitting the sandwich with someone else. It’s basically fair food and that’s not something anyone needs to eat daily if they want to live. Actually, we probably shouldn’t eat it at all.

  1. Ok guilty as charged, I am the one that named the truck and BELIEVE me if I could have changed it a long time ago I would have. Long story about the name but it was done before the truck and easier to leave alone then to change all of the legal crap. Glad you like the Monte Castro, and yes we have a lot of fried items some carnival type foods that you just cannot get every day. But if you want to try some NON fried items may I suggest the Twisted Italian or the hot pressed chicken salad.also you may want to try the Cuban not fried, I know you said you did not like Cubans but if you liked the Monte but do not like fried you will love our cuban yes the Sriracha does make a difference BUT I think it is a slow roasted pork mixed with our special sauce that makes the cuban soooo good. We did win 2nd in the Cuban Sandwich Festival. We are also adding a non fried item for dessert such as cream puff strawberry shortcake with homemade whip cream. Come on by and itroduce yourself I would love to give you some of our non fried items to try. I will convert you to a more then one time vistor. Thank you for taking the time to write about us. I LOVE the honesty. Makes me want to be a loyal reader. Great job

    • Hahaha! Oh man, I’m sorry, but it’s true. The name…that’s a killer. Have you ever heard the story of the Goo Goo Dolls? They also dislike their name. It was something they came up with casually when they were young and then they blew up so fast, by the time they realized they had to kill the name, it was so popular they couldn’t take the risk. We really have to take branding serious, from the VERY BEGINNING. My day job is a designer in marketing and publishing, so I take this kinda thing seriously.

      I will definitely return, if I can find you! I tell ya, finding food trucks are like playing “Where’s Waldo.”

      I look forward to checking out some of your new stuff. And don’t feel like you gotta give me a darn thing. I started this blog to talk about things I like to do and my authentic self. I wasn’t looking for any freebies. I just wanna keep it real with anybody who cares to read my thoughts.

      Thank you for commenting and I hope you’ll continue reading the site!
