Food truck Chino Latino sells Mexican snacks


In streets around the world, humble food trucks have been shaping the culinary scene. Often housed in colorful, and attractive vans, they offer delicious yet affordable meals to locals in an intimate, open-air setting you wouldn’t experience in formal restaurants. 

And for the food truck Chino Latino, there’s no better way to bring the food truck culture south of Metro Manila than with the rich, meaty flavors of Mexican street food.

Update: as of May 2021, the Chino Latino food truck is now stationed in SOMO – A Vista Mall daily from 10AM-8PM. Details here. It has also been spotted around Cerritos Heights and other areas south of the NCR – follow their Facebook page for updates.


The Mexican food trucks are located in Parañaque and Las Piñas

Sprinkling salt, ground beef, and sauce on tacos since November 2018, Chino Latino has now become a regular sight in the streets of the south, with three of their trucks roaming around the villages of Parañaque and Las Piñas. 

Their OG truck, the Doña Marcia Amiga Truck aka the “Mother Trucker,” is an eye-catching orange van usually parked at the Pergola Mall in BF Homes Parañaque.
