SAN DIEGO, CA - Rolling onto San Diego streets by the end of January is Mercadito Wheels, a new food truck by Mercadito Hospitality, a Chicago-based restaurant group with local connections; Mercadito’s founders are relations of San Diego restaurateur and Mercadito Wheels’ managing partner, Pablo Becker (El Vitral).
The Mexican street food menu will have dishes transplanted from their Chicago restaurant, including shrimp tacos with roasted garlic, avocado and chipotle mojo, carnitas tacos with chile de árbol coleslaw and Baja-style fish tacos. Other handheld dish include their take on a burger, a grind of rib-eye and short rib burger with jalapeno emulsion, Mexican cheese and grilled scallions.
Their cocktail consultants, NYC’s Tippling Bros., have developed an agua frescas menu that includes refreshers like pineapple-ginger and citrus-basil.
The roving truck will set up a regular schedule of stops after they launch; keep tabs on their whereabouts via Facebook and Twitter.
