About el hueco

el hueco is giving San Diego, CA the opportunity to indulge in some authentic eats on the streets. The inspiration came from a night spent at a local Peruvian restaurant, enjoying the quaint atmosphere and delicious simplicity of the food. From there, the idea bloomed with a simple suggestion: serving Grandma Jaramillo's family recipes with a modern twist. Now, they've put it all on board of a food truck.

To much success, we might add. At el hueco, they're committed to traditional preparation methods, utilizing authentic spices and seasonings to amp up the flavor. From the classic El Lomito Saltado featuring grass fed beef, tomatoes, onions, herbs and spices stir-fried over rice to specialty ceviche costeno: the fresh catch of the day marinated in their specialty sauce with fried plantain chips, rest assured you'll get your fill here. Oh, and everything's lovingly made from scratch. What more could you ask for, really? Well, ask and you shall receive, because el hueco is available to cater your next event. Find 'em in San Diego, and ask 'em yourself. Trust us. They won't disappoint.
