Mojo on the Go Featured on Truckers in the Wild (Video)
Mojo on the Go's Tony Fernandez received some more kudos for his traditional Florida cuisine, when Vice's Truckers in the Wild filmed the food truck owner cooking his famous gator bites and frog legs for a segment of the show.
Though Truckers in the Wild hosts Eli and Max traveled to Sawgrass Recreation Park in Weston then went frog gigging in the Everglades, using the park as a jumping off point, Miami got top billing for it's role as "city in which to freak out people while holding a live gator".
You see, the online show's premise is to take food trucks out of their "natural habitat". In this episode, Mojo on the Go makes the haul to South Beach to see how many people will try the truck's fried gator (while the hosts parade around a live baby gator). The result? Most people would rather eat the critter than pet it (though one woman prefers to wear the reptile on her feet -- as shoes).
In case you missed it, Eat St. filmed Mojo on the Go last June for a segment. Here it is:
