Welcome to La Jacka, our family-owned food truck specializing in vegan Mexican cuisine. Our commitment to using only the highest-quality vegan ingredients has led us to grow our own jackfruit in Nayarit, Mexico.
Our family has been dedicated to the art of growing and cooking with jackfruit for generations. Our head chef, Miriam, started working with jackfruit at the age of twelve when her family began cultivating the fruit. The ripened jackfruit is a great meat substitute, with a stringy texture and neutral taste that takes on almost any flavor.
As a child, Miriam took an interest in business and would make and sell banana bread with her friends. In Mexico, her family would make jackfruit nectar, marmalades, bread, ice cream, and candies to share different methods of eating the fruit. It wasn't until Miriam was married that she started cooking regularly herself. After relocating to California, Miriam became a farmworker, harvesting fruits and vegetables from the Central Valley. However, she still wanted to own her own business.
With support from her husband, Miriam was able to start her first food truck business. This gave her the opportunity to experiment with traditional Mexican food and her jackfruit creations – and thus, La Jacka was born. Our menu features a wide range of delicious, plant-based dishes that are sure to satisfy even the most discerning palate. From our mouthwatering jackfruit tacos to our savory jackfruit burritos, there's something for everyone at La Jacka.
We are proud to offer our customers a unique, tasty, and healthy dining experience that you won't find anywhere else. And with our commitment to growing our own jackfruit in Nayarit, you can be sure that every bite is bursting with freshness and flavor.
We look forward to serving you and sharing our family's love of delicious, vegan Mexican cuisine made from fresh, locally-grown jackfruit.
