Hot Dog El Paisa Food Truck – Kendall, Florida

Hot Dog El Paisa Food Truck

A few folks had mentioned to me that there was a Hot Dog truck parking late nights in Kendall (my pal Caveman was on of them). This truck is somewhere in between being one of the new generation of suped up trucks and the roach coaches of old. I found Hot Dog El Paisa truck parked not too far from a Blockbuster on Kendall Drive and 137th. There were a couple of people in line ahead of us, so Caveman and I looked over the posted menu to see what we’d like to get.

Hey, stop looking at me!

My eyes kept getting drawn to the logo. It’s a hot dog with head, stubby arms and feet and a man purse (a little creepy if you ask me). I ordered the Hawaiian Hot Dog – Jumbo and Caveman went with the Salchiarepa Paisa. The Hawaiian has ketchup, mayo, mustard, pink sauce, potato sticks, pineapple sauce, Parmesan cheese and melted cheese.

It was an all beef hot dog and it was solid. It was very reminiscent in taste to the hot dog at Mao. An Arepa is a bread made of cornmeal that is grilled, baked, or fried. This particular version, a Salchiarepa has hot dogs slivers on it.

It’s served open face with melted cheese, sauced to your liking and topped with Parmesan cheese. I happened to really like this but for Caveman a couple of bites was enough. There’s one other cool thing about Hot Dog El Paisa, a frequent dinner card. Have 9 (not all at the same time) Jumbo Paisa Hot Dogs, Jumbo Hawaiian Hot Dogs or Salchiarepas Paisa and receive the 10th free.

About Burger Beast

I started writing the Burger Beast food blog to tell folks about those little forgotten gems in South Florida. Over the course of the last 5 years or so I've added News, Opinions, & Tips on a variety of Food related subjects. My first love will always be Burgers but Comfort Food is where it's at. At the end of the day I’m a regular dude who writes about a bunch of things I think you should know about.
