MI SU Street Food’s ‘eclectic and fun’ Mexican fusion menu debuts downtown

Only good things can come from a business built on a foundation of freshly made flour tortillas. 

MI SU Street Food doesn’t literally have tortillas for tires, but owners Alden and Hylene Garcia build a lot of their out-of-the-box, Mexican-style menu items around their authentic, homemade tortillas. 

“We knew fresh tortillas was something missing in Pensacola,” Alden Garcia said. “Our LLC name is literally ‘One Taco At A Time,’ so we’re trying to keep one taco on the menu at all times. And we’ll have a breakfast taco on it daily, too.” 

A taco and a huevo roll, foreground, are ready to go as owner Alden Garcia tops off another order of tacos at MI SU food truck at 528 West Garden Street in downtown Pensacola on Thursday, Jan. 21, 2021.

Alden Garcia said some of his recipes are fusion-style while others are so off-the-wall that he can’t even really categorize them.

“I mean, I’ll put chorizo on a burger, that’s one of them. We’re doing a ‘Huevo Roll,’ which is our take on an egg roll,” Garcia went on. “It’s chorizo, cabbage and peppers stuffed into one of our fresh tortillas and made with our homemade duck sauce. We pretty much make everything from scratch.” 

Any MI SU meal that doesn’t revolve around the mobile truck’s own tortillas is otherwise anchored by the buns and bread from Craft Gourmet Bakery. 

MI SU plans to spend a lot of time building its brand in Pensacola as a food truck, but Garcia said the long-term plan is to eventually open a brick-and-mortar restaurant in the city. 

“We want to build ourselves up, ride out the pandemic and introduce ourselves to the community first,” Garcia said. “So (a restaurant) will be way down the line.”
