Latinos Try Puerto Rican School Lunch


Many thanks to Peter Jordens for making me incredibly hungry after watching this YouTube video. The video “Latinos Try Puerto Rican School Lunch” (by Pero Like) was quite amusing. It shows four Latino participants comparing their school lunch memories and responding to a typical Puerto Rican, free, public school lunch. The lunches are served on the unforgettable metal trays that I so fondly remember. The presenter, Iván, does a great job of describing the food, which was prepared by Chef Omayra Dakis (Triple Threat Trucks).

One of the participants offers a shout-out to all the “lunch ladies of Puerto Rico,” exclaiming that “Not all heroes wear capes. Sometimes they wear net caps.”
