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.
