I like the look of this Ecuadorian food truck parked in Midtown. I tried to order the Fish Bollo (fish tamale), but it was sold out. Then I ordered the Combination Platter. The guy was about to make it, but turned back to ask me something. I couldn’t figure out what he was saying. I thought it had to do with what type of rice I wanted. He got some guy standing next to me to translate. Turns out he wanted to make sure I knew that the Combination Platter cost $15. That’s too rich for my blood for lunch from a truck.
I then asked about the Goat Stew …but it was $12. I couldn’t decide, so I told the guy who helped translate that he could go ahead and order. But he said it was alright. He was like “this place is too expensive.” Then I went with the hen stew ($8) and headed back to work. Turns out the that translator guy actually worked for the truck. I don’t know what I got. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t hen.
