Lee Anderson is no stranger to global street food. The owner of Radio Bean was first in Burlington to put it on the menu at his eclectic restaurant ¡Duino! (Duende). Now that it’s summer, Anderson is taking DD to the streets. His new cart, Pincho, officially debuts this Wednesday in City Hall Park. Starting next week, he’ll be there Monday through Friday — from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. — for the duration of the outdoor eating season.

“I think that a lot of the mobile food business is selling more meal-like items,” says Anderson. “But I wanted to do something that’s very traditional street food.”

For $3, diners can purchase long-marinated skewers of Misty Knoll Farms chicken, local pork or seasonal Vermont veggies. An additional $2 buys a full plate, including the skewer bathed in tangy Puerto Rican-style barbecue sauce, coconut rice, black beans and slaw. “It’s pretty simple food with really complex flavors,” says Anderson, who claims he eats little else when in Puerto Rico. “We’re keeping it simple and traditional and tasty, as well as local.”
