The original Don Mofongo Food Truck (there are now two) opened up in Miami during the month of April of 2012. Alicia & Wilson’s (the owners of Don Mofongo) vision was to bring a mix of Puerto Rican and Dominican dishes to the then rapidly expanding food truck scene of South Florida.
The Mofongo in Don Mofongo comes from the Puerto Rican dish made of fried Green Plantains smashed with Chicharrones (Pork Rinds) and a housemaid Garlic sauce. It is the most popular dish they serve and is available with either Chicken, Churrasco, Longaniza(Chorizo), Pernil(Slow Cooked Pork), Pork(Chunks) or Shrimp.
If I’m gonna suggest something for you to try of course it’s going to be the Chimi (Dominican Burger). The Chimi is a seasoned Beef Patty on a Dominican Water Roll topped with shredded Cabbage & Carrots, Onions, Tomato, & Pink Sauce (variations on this sandwich do exist out there).
The good folks at Don Mofongo love their fans so if you follow them on social media don’t be surprised if your picture ends up on there with a custom thank you from them. It’s not surprising that their fans reciprocate the feeling by supporting them by eating their grub since they are always one of the most popular trucks at whichever event you may find them at.
