Que Sabrosa – La Cocina Mexicana is a food cart on the corner of N Fremont and N Vancouver and offers delicious hearty Mexican food for a great price. Que Sabrosa has been in this location for three years but has recently moved to the prime spot on this food cart corner, housed in a new sleek apple red trailer. The sign says “Authentic Mexican food.” I stood out in the crowd on the newly built plywood porch as the only non-Spanish speaker. While I placed my order, two women delivered ingredients and sang along to the Mexican ballads coming from the radio. The owner Yulissa loves to cook and uses the recipes handed down from her grandmother.
Que Sabrosa’s new menu offers Acapulco influenced empanadas, tamales, burritos, quesadillas, tacos, chimichangas and sopes. My two favorites are the chorizo and chile relleno burrito. A single burrito is a substantial meal, which could be shared by two, for $5.50. The handmade tortillas are grilled and filled with fried rice, a filling of your choice, refried beans, cilantro and a secret tangy sauce. Even though it isn’t on the menu, ask for Yulissa’s delicious guacamole. The cart has several vegan and vegetarian options and is open until 9 p.m. seven days a week. Enjoy lunch or dinner at Que Sabrosa.
