Latin Street Food

About Us

Latin Street Food

We love the vibrant street food scene that exists in so many parts of the world.  Food that is strange and exotic to one group of people brings comfort to another.  There is an intangible euphoria that overcomes the senses when we explore different cultures.  Our goal is to replicate the passion, flavors, smells, sounds...the entire experience of Latin street food at Screaming Goat Taqueria.

Made With Integrity...

We take great pride in making our food from scratch.  We care about what goes into the food that we serve, which is why we source our ingredients from local farms whenever they are available.  We hope that you will be able to taste and appreciate the love that we put into the food we prepare.

Thanks Mom!

I owe my love of cooking to my Mom.  Whether it was kneading bread every Saturday morning, picking fresh vegetables in the garden, canning fresh fruit that we'd gone and gotten from the orchard to sustain our family for the Winter or picking wild asparagus by the ditch banks, I loved it all.  I especially loved when Mom would let me help her cook in the kitchen, teaching me the proper way to cook, handle a knife and how to make food taste great.  She taught me attention to detail by always putting so much love into making food look so pretty through her presentation.

I started cooking professionally when I was 15. After high school I attended The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York where I graduated in 1990.

My wife Amy and I have called Sarasota home since 1999.  I've had a great career working for gracious owners that took a chance on hiring me, and that gave me the opportunity to learn.  My goal from an early age was to own a restaurant, so after years of working, I took and chance and opened The Screaming Goat Taqueria.
