You've got to love it when new food comes to Rockford, especially when it represents a cuisine that is tough to find.

Wehpah Puerto Rican Food Truck is celebrating their grand opening this Saturday at the Don Carter Lanes parking lot, 4001 East State Street from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Owner Christina Perez said in a press release:

I've had a huge passion for cooking since I was very young. My love of cooking grew as I was raised by my single father. I knew it was my obligation to prepare wonderful food in an attempt to give back to him.

Perez continues:

My ultimate goal for Wehpah is to introduce the Rockford community to this authentic Puerto Rican food.  What you will experience are amazing Caribbean flavors that are heavily influenced by our Puerto Rican culture.

Simply based on some of the pictures from the Wehpah Food Truck Facebook, the food looks incredible. I need some of that Puerto Rican Lasagna in my life right now.
