Thanks to one of our readers, Jeff Fish, for the heads-up on this truck. This is the third summer that Rincon Latino has been open so we were surprised that we haven’t heard of it before.
Rincon Latino (Latin Corner) is a Dominican owned truck and has an extensive menu serving a variety of Dominican, Mexican and American food. One of the specialities are the fruit smoothies. The tropical feast was a mixed fruit smoothie with lots of strawberry.
The daily specials are also recommended. They vary daily but today’s offering was yellow rice and peas with beef stew. The beef had a lot of flavor but wasn’t as tender as I would have liked. All in all a good meal and deal.
We also tried some empanadas, both had a thin crisp shell and were served with a cocktail-like-secret-sauce. The melted cheese was simple. The chicken was shredded and cooked with green peppers and generously spiced with black pepper.
We hope to return to try the mofongo, plantains and cuban sandwiches.
