In Calais, authentic Mexican food truck off to strong start

by Jayna Smith

Folks who have been in downtown Calais lately have surely seen the new food truck on Main Street. Lined with colorful decor, the small trailer named Mama Lola’s Mexican Food Truck sits next to Triangle Park.

Don’t be fooled by its size, however. What it lacks in kitchen space, Mama Lola’s compensates in flavor with an authentic Mexican-food experience.
Owner Manuella “Mannie” Medrano is a first-generation Mexican-American. “My mom was from Mexico, my grandma was from Mexico, my dad was from Mexico,” she said.
