Boriken Modern Puerto Rican Cuisine – F39

Chef Carlos Garcia was born and raised in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, and has worked worldwide at Five-Star resorts. His booth “Boriken” began as a vague idea for a dream of a restaurant, which never materialized and was then forgotten. During the global Covid-19 pandemic, those initial ideas resurfaced, but this time with a modern approach on wheels, with Puerto Rican gastronomy as the main focus, using heirloom recipes and creativity. Working now with Jackeline García, Carlos is thrilled to Puerto Rican heritage with Tucson.
