Last year when the Food Network was in Miami filming the Great Food Truck Race at Miami Lakes Auto Mall, Yayo had just gotten his food truck and was about to make his way up to Nashville. The picture above is from June 3rd, 2012 the same day he received the truck and was showing it off to us.
Yayo is the brother of Ze Carlos of the MexZican Gourmet Food Truck & Restaurant. I originally met him when he was working on the MexZican Truck in late 2010. There was a great dynamic between the 2 brothers and I was excited to find out Yayo would be getting his own truck. I didn’t know he’d be taking his skills to Nashville though.
His truck, Yayo’s O.M.G. (for Original Mexican Gourmet not Oh My God but I guess it could be) can now be found leading the Food Truck charge in Nashville, Tennessee and was recently featured on Eat St. Check out the episode below.
And those Chalupitas….they look ridiculously good:
