Monster Burgers Food Truck Serves Colombian Comida Rapida

If there’s one food truck, you’re going to find kids pointing at and harassing their parents to eat from its Monster Burgers. There’s something beautiful about the graphics and colors on this food truck, but this truck delivers the goods.

If you’re not familiar with the Colombian fast food (Comida rapida) movement, you’ve probably chosen to overlook it. It’s all over South Florida, and like anything that starts as exceptional, many inferior restaurants infiltrate on the second wave with horrible food.

There are a couple of clues that will let you know you’re at a Colombian fast-food Spot. Look for food with lots of sauces and crushed potato chips, and you’ve probably hit the jackpot.

Keep your fingers crossed that you picked a great one.

Diana & Julio, the folks behind Monster Burgers, made me believe in Colombian fast food again. Monster Burgers does a great job representing this food niche. Sure, you can order everything plain, but it would defeat the purpose of eating here.

With its bacon, onions, mozzarella cheese, crushed chips, and sauces, the Monster Hot Dog is always a winner. If you want to go to the next level, get the Choridog, which replaces the hot dog with a sausage.

And don’t get me started on those Salchipapas Criollas (potatoes, sausages & sauces). If you’re looking for a more traditional fry dish, there are bacon and cheese fries.

You will not want to share them if the Maicito is on the specials menu; order two, one for now and one for later. A Maicito may sound like a weird dish to you if you’ve never had it.

It’s corn kernels topped with mozzarella cheese, crushed potato chips, pineapple sauce, and cilantro-ish cream sauce. You also have the option to add chicken and bacon too. I know it sounds wild, but it’s crazy good.

The burger is over the top in excesses, with everything but the kitchen sink thrown in. I don’t eat these too often, as one of the Monster Burgers will put you down for the count. As I’m writing this, I realize that I’ve never ordered their Chicken Burger.

How is it possible that I’ve overlooked this each time I’ve eaten from the Monster Burgers Food Truck? Well, that settles it; I know what I’m having next time!
