    I was in a rush for a light lunch and there was a 35 minute wait at Veracruz so I went a few steps away to Cazamance. So glad. I had the Piri piri pulled pork pita pocket which is really more like a flour tortilla. This scrumptious "sandwich" was packed with moist pulled pork, fried plantains, steamed spinach and a tasty sauce with two small cups of additional salsa to add the spicy heat. Great combination of savory, sweet (plantain) and spicy. It's my "regular" go to quick lunch or dinner in that part of town. I recently added the fried plantain and tomato relish for a bit more food. It came with lightly pickled cucumbers. Great mix of flavors and textures. Looking forward to trying more of the menu but it's hard to pass up the piri piri pulled pork!

    Cazamance is a trailer tucked away in Radio Coffee & Beer just north of Ben White on Manchaca. Radio has the laid back vibe of the place locals go to chill, visit friends or hunker down at the laptop. Veracruz is the other trailer at Radio. Both Veracruz and Cazamance serve slow food, made by local people who care about local people. Iba came to United States from Senegal. His ancestors were hunters, he told me. His father worked in a customs office and his mother was a politician His mother told him if he worked at a restaurant he would never go hungry. Now we can all enjoy the fruits of his journey from dishwasher to cook and creator of the Cazamance menu. Veracruz was very busy one night I was there so I decided to try Cazamance and had the Piri Piri pulled pork pita pocket. I was blown away. Loaded with pulled pork, fried plantains and steamed spinach it was an incredible treat at $4. Packed with flavor the pork was moist. Plantain added a bit a sweetness and the two house made salsas added the heat for those who want it. I've been back many times and sometimes the pulled pork is gone by 2:00 pm. (There's more in the evening). One time it was the plantains were sold out. The pork is everybody's favorite. Obviously I'm not the only person who knows great food when they taste it. It is a testament to an old soul for someone to prepare food with this level of consistently great flavor and find great people to help him serve it.
