Drug cartel-themed food truck with El Chapo pizza ‘asking for trouble’

A drug cartel-themed food truck has been slammed for 'asking for trouble' after it advertised drug lords and introducing drug-related food items on the menu.

The food truck, situated in Houston, Texas, has the faces of Ismael 'El Mayo' Zambada, the alleged leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, and Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman, a former leader within the same cartel, which remains one of the biggest drug syndicates in the world.

On the truck, the phrase 'Sinaloa Style' is printed with a tomato in the place of the O in Sinaloa and named one item in honour of El Chapo, named 'La Chapizza'.

One reddit user said: "(It's the) Same in Cali, dudes name dishes after narcos".

Another user commentated on the post and was slightly more complimentary than most who interacted with the initial post, writing: "It may be great marketing or very dumb marketing. I guess time will tell if their business booms or fails. Not gonna judge them for thinking outside the box and taking the risk."

Another user wanted to go and check it out for themselves in person and asked: "Does anyone know where exactly in Houston they’re located? I actually live near Houston so I’d like to check it out in person."
