Though music can be inspired by many things, it's not often that you hear of an artist finding their muse in a food truck. But according to SF Weekly, New York City DJ King Shameek once crafted a 77-minute mix tape inspired by his love for Borinquen Soul, a mobile Puerto Rican restaurant. The music can often be heard pouring from the truck, only slightly louder than the sound of the rumbling tummies anticipating orders of carne guisa (stewed beef with veggies) or empanadas stuffed with beef, chicken, or shrimp. The pasteles—Puerto Rican-style tamales filled with pork or chicken and wrapped in a plantain leaf—are particularly popular though, and are even available frozen—along with the truck's empanadas and alcapurrias—for those who want to stock up at home.
