Patacon Pisao now has locations in Elmhurst and the Lower East Side, but it all started at this food truck on 202nd Street. Like the other locations of this casual Venezuelan spot, the focus here is on the patacon - a sandwich that swaps bread for plantains filled with beans, fried cheese, special sauce, and your choice of meat. Our favorite is the one with grilled steak and chorizo, but no matter which one you order, you’ll get a lot of very enjoyable food for about $10.
