Ropa Vieja, Cuba’s National Dish, Just Made Its Way Onto Loaded Fries For Brunch

Ropa Vieja, which translates to “old clothes,” is one of the quintessential dishes in Cuban cuisine. The recipe takes shredded steak and converts it into a hearty stew, packed with tomatoes and plenty of veggies.

More on the savory side than spicy, it’s best enjoyed with starchy accompaniments like rice, beans, plantains – or even French fries.

Tastebuds Catering, a Latin American food truck out of Orlando, is opting for the latter of those options in a brunch dish inspired by ropa vieja.

Tastebuds’ take involves loading garlic shoestring fries up with cheddar cheese, a helping of ropa vieja, and a fried egg to tie the whole dish together.

These Loaded Ropa Vieja Fries debuted at Foodbeast’s Brunchfest, presented by Hubert’s Lemonade at Playlist Live in Orlando.

Your Favorite Breakfast Dishes Are Now Empanadas At This Popular Food Truck

When you hear the word “empanada,” the first thing that usually comes to mind is, ‘delicious.’

Since so many of us are head-over-heels in love with these small, half-moon shaped, crispy, meat-filled morsels of heaven, we had the La Empanada Food Truck come up with some never-before-seen, brunchitized renditions just for Foodbeast’s BRUNCHFEST presented by Hubert’s Lemonade.

La Empanada created two brunch-inspired empanadas: Croque Madame and Huevos Rancheros. These two hearty, hand crafted empanadas will wrap you up with satisfaction with every warm, flaky mouthful.

While all empanadas are created equal, the Croque Madame is loaded up with thick slices of ham and super melty cheese. Protip: Break the croque madame in half just to tease your friends on Instagram with a lucious cheese pull before you take the first bite — tag Hubert’s Lemonade while you’re at it.  

The Huevos rancheros is stuffed with chorizo, red beans and Monterey Jack cheese, and will provide the sustenance you need to Brunchfest all day long.

Both empanadas were topped with a sunny side up egg waiting to be popped because, well, brunch.

Chicken And Waffles Got A Spicy Maple Twist At Playlist Live

The combination of chicken and waffles can be compared to the pairings of Batman and Robin, Shaq and Kobe, or even Corey and Topanga. They all just make sense together.

Chicken Waffle Grill has perfected that savory dynamic duo with its own crunchy chicken lying on a warm waffle.

Slanging chicken from their food truck since 2015, they brought their expertise to Playlist Live in Orlando, by dishing out a Sweet & Spicy Waffle topped with bacon, fried chicken and a spicy maple syrup.

Imagine the sweet syrup we all know and love gets a spicy kick to it, giving your tastebuds a confusing and delicious sensation it didn’t know it needed.

These spicy chicken and waffles debuted at Foodbeast’s Brunchfest, presented by Hubert’s Lemonade at Playlist Live.

This Florida Food Truck Is Doing Tempura Shrimp & Grits, And It’s A Must See

If you’re looking for the most succulent and savory bite of your life then look no further than Sushi & Seoul’s food truck at Playlist Live in Orlando: BRUNCHFEST.

The fusion food truck was an easy choice for Foodbeast and Hubert’s Lemonade to feature at the food fest – all it took was one dish.

Their Tempura Shrimp and Grits is a savory food flower that’s in full bloom for the picking.

Under a vibrant sous-vide soft boiled egg is a miso ginger glazed pineapple wheel resting on top of stone ground grits that’ll cover your entire mouth in warmth and sunshine.

Petalled around it are slow roasted pork belly pieces and tiger shrimp tempura.

The three distinct, yet equally important, textures make for one of the most decadent bites you’ll find anywhere.

With a palette that glazed with flavor, there’s nothing better to satiate it than a bottle of Pineapple Ginger Hubert’s Lemonade.

You can find this delectable dish and others similar to it from 9 AM to 5 PM on Saturday, April 28th to Sunday, April 29th in the Food Truck Area at Brunchfest.

Tickets to the event, happening at the Orlando World Center Marriott, are still available.
