The whole reason we got into this business was to spend more
00:05
time together.
00:06
We were both in the corporate industry and we would not see
00:09
each other very much.
00:10
I'm Cuban, my husband's Colombian.
00:11
So it's really Cuban Colombian.
00:14
Love.
00:15
Hi, I'm Andres.
00:15
Hi, I'm Kimberly.
00:16
We're the owners of Latin cuisine.
00:22
We've all heard but in every city there are Latino chefs who
00:28
proudly wrap their culture in the kitchen.
00:30
We hit the streets to find them and tell their stories.
00:34
This is so when we first started, we didn't have any restaurant
00:44
industry background, any experience in the food industries
00:48
In the beginning, we had so many struggles.
00:50
We did all the prepping, all the cleaning, all the cooking
00:53
and hours on the truck.
00:54
But the reason we went into this wasn't for the money.
00:58
It was for the love of the food.
01:00
And that's where our recipes are from, are from three generations
01:03
passed to my husband and I food made with passion.
01:06
You'll taste it in every bite.
01:08
Yes.
01:09
Very true.
01:10
Yeah.
01:12
We're aware of our carbon footprint in this industry.
01:15
So our chicken is cage free, hormone free.
01:18
Our beef is sourced out of New Zealand from a farm that's cage
01:22
free, hormone free grass fed.
01:24
So when people try our food, we want them to experience like
01:27
they're in our home that we're serving them with their mom
01:30
And it feels like a safe place.
01:32
A loved place, a welcome place.
01:37
What makes our food special is basically our roots.
01:41
Uh as Latinos, we grew up around the kitchen all the time.
01:44
It was the center of the household.
01:46
So part of eating in our uh food truck is also hearing our Latin
01:50
music play in the background goes with our life.
01:53
Like we have a life, we have a wonderful life.
01:55
That's a translation in English is, that's our motto and,
01:59
and that's how we live and we just enjoying it.
