St. Augustine food truck gives Mexican street food a West Coast flair

Carlos Davidson was in his early 20s when he headed west from Florida and spent several months getting as much cooking experience as he could during his travels. 

He stopped in New Orleans and eventually made his way to Southern California. It was the West Coast that, years later, influenced his food truck in St. Augustine. 

“That’s kind of the birthplace of this truck, you know,” he said. “It’s very much heavily influenced by Southern California-Northern Mexico style of cooking Mexican food.”
