Puerto Rican Food Truck – AntoYitos Borincanos

Amy Ruiz Presents

Amy Ruiz Presents…

In the video below, I interview Jennifer Brown, owner of AntoYitos Borincanos, a Puerto Rican food truck. She explains that the name comes from her father, who loved to cook. So to honor him, they started this business for him and named it after him.

Instead of calling it Antojitos (snacks), they call it AntoYitos because they called him Yitos. So it’s both a clever play on words, and a nice touch in the memory of her father.

Jennifer (on the left in the photo above) says the food truck brings a little flavor from the island of enchantment, Puerto Rico. Of course, they also do their best to make it authentic as well. Another reason they started the food truck is because they love Puerto Rican food, but don’t always find it in San Diego. So the food truck is also a great way to share a bit of cuisine from the island with others.

They have a popular item on the menu called AntoYitos Box, which she says has a little of everything including Kabobs and Rice on Tripleta fries, and that it’s enough to feed about two people.
