The weather’s warming up, and that means locals can expect a slew of new food trucks ready to capitalize on increasingly comfortable temperatures. Tito Bercedoni and wife Stephanie have opened Tito’s Burritos, and as of March 29, they’ve been serving up what Tito calls Puerto Rican fusion cuisine. He draws in elements from Puerto Rican and Mexican food, plus Middle Eastern and Iranian hints to honor his wife’s heritage.

“We ended up doing surveys and taste testings throughout the house,” he says. “We’ve probably pushed 200 people through our food tasting since January.”

Bercedoni’s been in the business for over 30 years; locals may know him as the former owner of the now-defunct Pikes Perk on Powers Boulevard and Research Parkway. Their current specialties are a rice bowl — think burrito bowl with house-made sofrito and hash browns — and beef empanadas. Bercedoni says they hope to add alcapurrias and other offerings in the future.
