Episode 166 – Casa W Distillery – Wally Caraballo

This episode feature ⁠Wally Caraballo⁠ of ⁠Casa W Distillery⁠.

Wally’s entrepreneurial roots go back to his father’s bar in Puerto Rico where he was making and selling his own sangria. Upon arriving to the United States he set his sights on creating and sharing the traditional Pitorro that he grew up on back home. He began the journey as a moonshiner of sorts. He crafted and perfected the Puerto Rican rum in his basement. His family and friends clamored for this wonderful elixir. Now he’s changing the game with his own expression of what he believes Pitorro should be. To date they have been open for seven months and have become a fixture and destination in the community. Some of their releases sell out so fast and they are working hard to keep up with demand. As Wally says, “Pitorro chose him”.  We are so grateful that it did.

Episode 165 – La Frikitona – Armando Rodriguez and Yesenia Westerband

This episode features Armando Rodriguez and ⁠Yesenia Westerband ⁠of ⁠La Frikitona⁠.

Owning and running restaurants and kiosks on the beaches of Puerto Rico is in the blood of Yesenia and Armando. Coming to the United States they wanted to create the same family concept that they knew back home. They began to weigh the pros and cons of a brick and mortar building and a mobile business. They never imagined that one day that would own and operate a food truck. Or, more accurately a food trailer. The recipes are a combination of old family dishes and the focus of putting their own spin on the dietary desires of their customers. It’s authentic Puerto Rican cuisine with their own flavors and interpretations.
