Since food trucks started becoming trendy in Miami a few years ago, we’ve seen tons of trucks come and go. But most of them had these beautifully designed trucks with cool shiny graphics, shiny exterior wraps and shiny wheels & rims. You even had a few food trucks that were “green” or served organic products or maybe even went the whole vegan route. Eff that. The food trucks of yesteryear have the formula that works. Food trucks are supposed to be simple yet a little grimy and they have to serve tons of greasy unhealthy food that you should only eat once a year.
While Chimi El Tigre is not grimy by any means, it is simple. A white truck with a Dominican flag and very quick menu graphics and photos that are similar to those Middle Eastern food carts and trucks that are all over Manhattan. Chimi El Tigre serves mostly Dominican comfort food and on any given night you’ll dozens if not hundreds of people lining up for their Dominican style burgers (“chimis”) and various Dominican delicacies like tostones, questo frito, salami, and more. No gimmicks, no flashy graphics – just good food and some great Dominican people with awesome customer service. Plus, their name is freakin’ Chimi El Tigre which is hilarious in a Dominican context.
You can find Chimi El Tigre in West Kendall, Miramar, North Miami and Homestead to name a few places they hit up. And they added a second truck in 2013 as well to serve more people their delicious Dominican goodness.
