Mexico Blvd food truck finds permanent home on 36th Avenue

April 22, 2014 By Michael Florio

Ditmars’ well known Mexico Blvd food truck will be rolling into a permanent location on the other side of Astoria.

The owners of the truck are about to open a restaurant at 33-09 36th Ave.

“The restaurant will serve an extended menu [similar to the truck] and will operate under a different name,” said Jordi Loaeza, who co-owns the truck along with his parents.

The truck doesn’t have a particularly large menu, and is best known for tacos and tortas.

The truck has built a solid reputation among local residents–by combining authentic Mexican cuisine with an eye-catching truck and its social media presence.

Loaeza, who has lived in Astoria for four years, did not want to reveal the name of the restaurant until he gets closer to opening it. He hopes to open as soon as possible.

Once open, the truck, which spends weeknights at 31 St and Ditmars Blvd (btw. 5:30-8:30pm), will be taking a hiatus.

“We are going to stop the truck on Ditmars for a little bit once we have this,” Loaeza said.

“We will bring it back once we get everything at the restaurant all settled.”

3 men sought for armed robbery in East Elmhurst home invasion near LaGuardia Airport: NYPD

The NYPD is looking for three men who allegedly robbed an East Elmhurst man of tens of thousands of dollars during a home invasion early Monday morning.

Police from the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights responded to a 911 call of an armed robbery at a townhouse located at 108-09 Ditmars Blvd. near 29th Avenue just south of LaGuardia Airport.
The victim had pulled up in front of his home just before 2 a.m. when he was approached by three suspects. One of them pulled out a firearm and forced him inside the townhouse where they stole around $30,000 in cash and a safe that contained an unspecified amount of jewelry, before exiting and driving off in a silver four-door SUV, police said.
