The first food carts were pulled by horses, which often ate all the ingredients and were forced to earn the money back by fixing races with their friends. Gallop toward grub with this Groupon.

The current menu includes chicken or lamb spiedie sandwiches ($9.50–$10.50) with avocado and signature sauce, a cuban ($10) with garlic-roasted pork shoulder, and an organic market-veggie salad ($7.50+) with mini white cucumbers, grilled asparagus, and braised artichokes. Because dishes use local ingredients, some menu items may change seasonally.
Annel & Drew’s Kitchen
Though Annel and Drew come from different backgrounds—she's a Michoacán, Mexico, native who learned about food in the kitchens of her family's restaurants, and he's a culinary-school grad who's training to become a certified health counselor—they share a common purpose: to handcraft original meals that use fresh ingredients obtained from local merchants. Together they do just that out of their eponymous mobile kitchen, a food truck that sets up shop a few days a week at accessible locations such as the Leucadia Farmer’s Market, the Oceanside Sunset Market, and right behind you a second ago.
As the nutrition expert, it's Drew's job to fill the seasonal menu with healthful dishes such as organic salads and sandwiches made with veggies from Suzie’s Farm. But like a thief who up and stole a whole Amazon warehouse, Annel also has plenty to offer. Having worked at acclaimed LA eatery El Floridita, she's got Cuban cuisine mastered; her kitchen makes a cuban sandwich the Coast News’ David Boylan declared is “as good as it gets.” Her degree in fashion may even have something to do with the artful presentation that marks dishes such as the grilled balsamic artichokes, which were named one of the Best Bites of 2011 in San Diego Magazine’s Best of North County.
