Latin Fixin's

April 10, 2019

Hey food truck nation!

We have all the fixins to make this week extra tasty… Latin Fixin’s that is! We met up with Alex Del Corral and Kiara Marcano, the proud owners of Latin Fixin’s to hear more about their successful food truck business. Alex and Kiara are serving up the Miami area with some seriously exquisite American foods with a Peruvian twist. Latin Fixin’s has perfected the art of fusing flavors from two different cultures into one delicious and cohesive concept. You must check them out next time you are in the area!

Alex and Kiara live and breathe the hospitality industry. Each have 20+ years of experience within the restaurant and event-planning world and have applied their knowledge in to making their own business and dreams into a reality. Before Latin Fixin’s came to be, Alex was working for a big restaurant chain in Miami when sudden layoffs took place and rocked their world. However, as a result they decided to overcome this challenge and open their very own cafeteria in the Downtown Miami area, Café Del Teatro. In 2010, Alex and Kiara decided to expand and opened their very own restaurant just around the corner from their café. They were quickly reminded of the grueling hours, hectic schedules (Monday through Monday) and the intense labor that comes along with owning restaurants. After several years, Alex and Kiara decided they wanted to enjoy more family time and sold their restaurants to expand their family.

The next phase of their story is quite exciting; Alex and Kiara were able to go back to basics, if you will. Once they decided the time was right, they began expanding the catering portion of their business. Kiara was a wedding planner when she graduated from college and decided to incorporate her experience in event planning to their catering business, which provided their clients with a one stop shop for planning their next events. Kiara would invest so much time and effort with every event they worked because she wanted to provide the service she would want to receive. This endeavor quickly proved to be much more lucrative than their restaurant businesses! Alex and Kiara have been able to cater for some big companies with offices here in South Florida. Doing so, they saw the need for a mobile Kitchen. Therefore Latin Fixin’s was born!

When Latin Fixin’s officially opened about four years ago, Alex and Kiara worked hard to create a menu that was true to their heritage with a twist. Alex is Peruvian and he grew cooking and eating the items they offer on their menu. The dishes served here are predominantly Peruvian, but they have infused some traditional American items everyone knows and loves. One example is their fire balls. At Latin Fixin’s they’ve taken classic macaroni and cheese and rolled it up in a ball, fried to perfection and topped it with their sensational Huancaina sauce (a delicious cheesy sauce made with traditional Peruvian yellow peppers). They have a set menu of six carefully crafted delicious dishes. We got you covered with Kiara’s favorites for the next time you visit Latin Fixin’s. Kiara definitely recommends ordering their savory chicken tacos, pollo saltado or their lomo burger. When we visited Latin Fixin’s we had to try their pork sandwich which consisted of tender pork that was perfectly seasoned and roasted for six hours, it was placed within a warm brioche bun, topped with crunchy potato sticks and drizzled with their out of this world Peruvian cebollita criolla sauce.

Latin Fixin’s is a family owned and operated business; that is something Alex and Kiara are very proud of. They have been able to open two food trucks to serve more of the Miami area and have their close family friend, Gio Arango, running their second truck. Although he may not be technically family, Gio has become family through the many years of friendship with Alex and Kiara. In the future, they plan to continue to grow and possibly open more food trucks, expand further in the catering world and may possibly create another twist of Latin Fixin’s. All we have to say is that the future is bright for Kiara, Alex and their hardworking team. We want to thank Alex and Kiara for taking the time to sit with us and share their inspiring story. This is without a doubt Food Truck Guys approved!

Until next time,

Kellee O.
