Since its very beginning, The Real Cubano food truck has set out to make Cuban cuisine well-represented and appreciated across New York City— and rest assured, there’s a reason that the Cuban food truck has earned a spot as one of the most beloved Cuban food trucks in all of the city. The food truck’s menu is made up of authentic, family recipes straight from ‘la Patria,’ or the fatherland; as soon as you taste a bite of their juicy Cubano or flavorful Ropa Vieja sandwich, you realize why The Real Cubano is a crowd favorite in all five boroughs, and why some of their dishes have even been ranked as the best in all of Bushwick. From Tostones to Lechon to Trés Leches dessert, The Real Cubano food truck guarantees the best Cuban dining experience for New Yorkers who are looking to discover something new, and for New Yorkers who are looking for a piece of home.
Aside from the delicious food options, part of the reason that The Real Cubano food truck is so special is because of the owners’ personal histories and friendships. Karel, Alvaro, and Gilberto are the co-owners and founders of The Real Cubano, but their friendships date back to when they were only 4 years old, living next to each other as neighbors in Cuba. And, although they all immigrated to the United States under different circumstances, each of them came to share the same dream of bringing their culture’s cuisine to one of the best cities in the world. Now, they spend their days bringing joy and culture to New Yorkers with their own stories.
