Casa Borrega Will Launch La Habana Food Truck Next Month

Cuban eats will hit the streets around Jazz Fest


Central City's beloved Mexican eatery and live music hub Casa Borrega will launch La Habana, a Cuban food truck next month, Will Coviello reports this week. Co-owner Hugo Montero tells Gambit he grew up amidst an abundance of Cuban culture in his native Mexico City.

Expect a menu of "noches sandwiches, ropa vieja, congri, lechon asado, arroz con pollo, tostones, fruit shakes and Cuban-style sodas from Miami" all under $10.

Brett Anderson also reports that the truck's debut will coincide with Jazz Fest, and will likely include a few opening events with Cuban musicians.
