Austin360Eats: Hitting two new Brazilian, Venezuelan food trucks

Think there’s not enough Latin food in Austin?

That’s slowly starting to change, thanks to a number of food trucks specializing in the cuisines of South and Central America. Over the past week, I found out about two new ones.

The first is Boteco, a Brazilian street food truck at 1403 E. Seventh St. that has captured the affection of Mike Galante, (@mikegalante on Instagram), who raves about the yuca fries, not to mention the feijoada (black bean stew with pork) and coxinha (fried chicken balls similar to a croquette). You can follow the truck on Instagram @botecoatx.

In South Austin, a brightly colored truck called Four Brothers (@fourbrothersatx) recently opened at 2201 S. First St. serving Venezuelan food that Lauren Jones (@laurentiff11) posted about over the weekend. She had chicken patacones, which is a plantain sandwich with avocado sauce, chicken, tomatoes and semiduro cheese, as well as Four Brothers’ signature arepas.

Show us what you’re enjoying at Central Texas eateries by adding #Austin360Eats to your posts on social media. (And use #Austin360Cooks if you’re making it at home!)
