Welcome to 2013, a time of progress and innovation. In this day and age, society now accepts and rejects different things than last decade. For example, society now accepts same-sex couples instead of deeming them taboo. The prevalence of social media has allowed for instantaneous spread of information, a tool that existed last decade, albeit underdeveloped. We can expect that expectations will change over time, and the rate of change differs from year to year. As another example, the gourmet food truck craze really took off in 2009, and peaked largely in 2011. Since then, the trend has wavered off, mostly due to the sheer number of bandwagon people that did not live up to expectations, but simply started a food truck as a means of capitalizing on a fad. Not all food trucks start off equal – some start off with good footing, led by experienced people. When experience counts, you will want to seek out Porko Rico BBQ.

From the creative masterminds behind The Viking Truck comes Porko Rico BBQ, a food truck that specializes in southern-style BBQ with a Caribbean twist. Having just launched their grand opening this past weekend, they currently operate with a limited menu, as they test out their kitchen’s creations on the streets and parking lots of Orange County. The current offerings feature traditional southern-style BBQ dishes, such as pulled pork and brisket, but prepared with the tropical flavors of the Caribbean. For example, their Pulled Pork Sandwich features a generous scoop of their citrus-infused pulled pork, topped with mango slaw, and drizzled with citrus BBQ sauce. All sandwiches come with a side choice of coconut creamed corn, pineapple baked beans, or pulled pork fries. Pro tip: do not eat the top bun – eat the sandwich open-faced for maximum flavor. Why interfere with the flavor by adding more bread that would otherwise take away from the meat?

Expect to see new menu items rolling out in the upcoming weeks, as they fine-tune their menu and add more scrumptious dishes. Like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter to always know where to locate Porko Rico BBQ.
