When Petra moved to Houston from Toa Alta, Puerto Rico, she brought along a rich repertoire of authentic family recipes. At annual Puerto Rican and Cuban festivals, she would prepare handcrafted empanadas and alcapurrias (plantain fritters with ground beef) to share with the Houston locals, who would blissfully savor the warm, vibrant flavors of her faraway home. As the demand for Petra’s signature offerings exponentially grew, she and her son, along with his good friend, together devised a plan to serve even more delicious specialties on the Houston streets all year round. Now Señor Juan (also known as The Mofongo Truck) is the number one spot in town for traditional Puerto Rican cuisine. From the plump plantain tamales to the hearty Mofongo (luscious mashed fried plantains topped with juicy pork chicharrón), and each signature item in between, this friendly family’s mouthwatering menu will transport you straight to Puerto Rican paradise.
