On May 5, 2013, a dream became a reality for April and Miles Perry, her mother Laura Urtuzuastegui, and Step-dad Joseph Urtuzuastegui. These co-owners of El Corazon Food Truck had debuted their authentic Mexican food on the streets of Portland, Maine. Today, April and Joseph are cooking on the truck Tuesday-Saturday, all year round, serving up some of the best Mexican food on the East Coast (in my humble opinion).
Sonoran Hot Dog: Bacon wrapped hot dog with pinto beans,
pico de gallo, cheese, guacamole, mustard, aioli.
With the slogan lining the back of the truck, "To know how to eat is to know enough", you better come ready to learn. From slow roasted carnitas, to perfectly moist tamales, it's easy to pair up favorites to get a little bit of everything. Some favorites on the street are the Chicken Mole tamales, the Baja Fish Burrito, and the Sonoran Hot Dog.
Freshly prepared tamales, taquitos, and tacos.
This family run food truck was built from the ground up, with their love poured into the repairs, bondo, and fresh paint. Joseph and April work together flawlessly, both having spent plenty of time in the kitchen, and they are no strangers to the heat. Joseph brings his Mexican roots from Arizona with his mother's recipes. April brings her graceful ease of putting together mouth watering dishes. Don't miss the bright red truck that has become a staple on the Portland streets, for regulars and tourists alike.
El Corazon can be found weekdays on Spring and Temple St. in Portland. For specific schedules, catering info and more visit their website: ElCorazonFoodTruck.com
