As Brian reported last month, the Bongo Brothers are back in action, but now as the flashy Miami Food Machine Truck with a new menu consisting of sliders, tacos, and rice bowls. The Machine, decked out in a color scheme reminiscent of Miami Vice, has been making appearances in Midtown for the past few Mondays on Park Avenue between 49th and 50th Street.

While we didn’t see much of Bongo Brothers in Midtown, we sure enjoyed their food downtown and in the Flatiron. Word came from Twitter this week that the brothers have re-branded their truck and will be selling Miami-style food (so, still Cuban?) from a flashy truck. They’ll be launching Miami Food Machine today in the Financial District and one of the owners told me they hope to come to Midtown East on Monday. The menu has also changed quite a bit. No more Cuban sandwiches or ropa viejo. Now it looks as though they’ll be following the same format as 80% of the food trucks on the streets by offering their versions of tacos, sliders, and bowls. The new menu can be viewed on their website here and they have a new Twitter feed here.
