Unconfirmed but exciting news: a Puerto Rican mobile food vendor called Don Frito appears to have opened in Chelsea. A post on Chowhound says that a trailer by that name is now operating on Beacham Road: "They are offering 'fritos' (fried snacks), some comida criolla (homestyle Puerto Rican food), and did have a sign mentioning 'lechon assado,'" or roast pork. The given location is near the Dunkin' Donuts at 276 Beacham Street. Other recent Puerto Rican openings include Vejigantes in the South End. As of now, that's all that is known about the existence of Don Frito: if you know more, comment your heart out or check in via the tipline.
