Orlando Food Truck Bazaar debuted in March of this year. Since then, the Food Truck Revolution has hit Orlando with lightening speed, gaining in popularity to such an extent that now at the very least 3-4 times a week, one can visit these bazaars.
I chose Lake Nona Food Truck Bazaar as my very first, as they had 19 food trucks attending; I do relish my variety. I was pretty impressed with the variety however ultimately for me; the true test lies in taste. We initiated our hunt by taking a stroll, making selections based primarily on uniqueness and ethnicity.
While making our rounds, the bright bold colored Twisted Cuban caught my eye instantly. Not to mention how much we relish Cuban cuisine. Twisted Cuban is the proud endeavor of a husband and wife duos (Flores Family), who also own a coffee shop in Deland.
We chose to order the signature dish ‘Cuban Sandwich’ and Tostones.
I learnt the hard way that lines quickly back up at these food trucks. They may be kitchens on wheels, however, the food is cooked fresh, right in front of you; hence the wait. I appreciated the Twisted Cuban food truck thoughtfulness by providing 2 windows; one window to order/pay and the other to pick your food. Nice touch!!
Cuban puritans unanimously agree that a traditional Cuban sandwich is a grilled sandwich made of Ham, Pork, Mustard, Pickles, Swiss Cheese, & Cuban bread. One bite of my sandwich was all it took to appreciate that outside of Miami, I discovered an authentic Cuban sandwich. The bread was grilled perfectly, the 12 hour roast pork was melting in your mouth goodness, adequate mustard and pickles; yes this was truly a “Cubano”.
The tostones were light, flavorful and were accompanied with a wonderfully tangy Cuban dipping sauce. Well done!!
