This is what you call a Latino French fry.
00:02
I gonna use potatoes, use plants and then fry them up and this
00:04
is delicious.
00:05
This is gonna be the main dish in my wedding.
00:06
Forget a cake.
00:07
I'm gonna rub myself with this.
00:09
You got this in deodorant.
00:23
This is what's good in your hood today.
00:25
We are at visiting a family owned establishment with great
00:29
food and some life lessons.
00:30
Come check it out.
00:33
Yeah.
00:39
But for the here, the most ingredient that we try to indulge
00:54
it is love and we get that from my mom.
00:57
Love.
00:57
Indeed.
00:58
I quickly understood why this is a hot spot for Latinos in L
01:01
A.
01:01
You can only feel the love but you can taste it.
01:05
You come here and you have that home vibe.
01:07
That smell reminds you of your grandma.
01:09
That smell reminds you.
01:11
Oh hey, that's when I used to chase.
01:12
I almost got burned.
01:13
Things of that nature.
01:14
What's your favorite dish?
01:16
Of course, this one was a new one for me is our version of the
01:23
comfort food to with Mexico is a taco.
01:28
That's the traditional way pretty quick.
01:35
History is because they say that it was an old lady who was sending
01:38
these on the street and then one time there was a drive by so
01:41
she got shot, you know, and then everybody ever since then
01:44
they're like, and ever since then, so they, they in, in, in
01:51
honor of her, they call it, let's go get it.
01:56
Just hit me just now.
01:58
You can never pull that off in English.
02:00
Let me get the drive by.
02:02
You got the drive by with a lot of sauce.
02:04
Hook it up.
02:06
It felt great to share a few laughs with this beautiful family
02:09
joy hasn't been a constant for them the past couple of years
02:13
Instead they face loss, financial struggle and mourning
02:16
after the tragic passing of the head of the family in 2014.
02:20
Unfortunately, I was placing the burden of being the man in
02:22
the house.
02:23
So there was no time to cry, no time to do anything.
02:26
You gotta the and, uh, lucky you have a strong mom.
02:30
It's been heartbreaking like these past two years.
02:32
But it's her.
02:34
She's the reason in the restaurant.
02:35
So standing and stronger than ever.
02:46
But he was just a strong character, um, very hard working and
02:49
uh, he showed the, the virtuosity of being a neighbor.
03:12
So you, you go to school and work here as well.
03:14
Yeah, waiter by day, uh, lawyer by night.
03:17
Are you serious?
03:17
Yeah, that's a waiter with a lot of swag.
03:19
No wonder that he enjoys serving the Afro Caribbean delicacy
03:23
or soup.
03:25
Uh Is it true that this is like Afro it'll raise the dead testimony
03:40
Speak for themselves.
03:41
Can you speak?
03:42
Can you speak from my parents?
03:43
I don't kiss and tell guys, man, this has been amazing.
