About El Fuego
El Fuego is a unique experience - when you eat restaurant quality food from the food truck.
Husband and wife, Arturo and Olha, were dreaming about their own restaurant business. But San Francisco brick and mortar prices are not really welcoming. And inspired by the success of food trucks in Los Angeles they’ve decided to start with a little step towards their dream. Olha quit her job at the Bank and Arturo left his role as Manager of fast growing restaurant group Sababa.
And El Fuego have launched in 2020 as a food truck in San Francisco. The first day of work did not promise a lot because it was a day when shelter-in-place was issued in SF. They’ve worked for a couple of weeks but it was a tough time for beginners in the food industry. And El Fuego had to close for two months. But in May 2020 they came back to work and haven't stopped the food truck’s wheels anymore.
Inspired by Mexican culture and food we offer Authentic Mexican birria that we spoon into tacos, roll into burritos, and serve as a healthy bowl. People ask us “Why El Fuego?” and we say “ El Fuego means Fire that signifies something hot, colorful and exciting. And we felt that this name reflects the flavor of our food, culture and diversity”. We look forward to welcoming you with delicious food and great service!
