Puerto Rican food cart owner Luis Carmona moved to Wisconsin a handful of years ago to play guitar in a band. In May 2017, he launched a food cart named both for the island he left and the state he adopted: El Wiscorican. 

Five days a week from 11 a.m. until 1:30 p.m., El Wiscorican serves hearty sandwiches, slow-cooked meats and savory rice at 1225 W. Dayton St., outside the doors of the Atmospheric & Oceanic Sciences building and across the street from the Department of Computer Sciences.
