Now we're talking, and the wait is over. When Andres Velez, co-owner with his wife, Patricia, temporarily closed the Piglatin Food Truck in Colorado Springs in July, fans of their Latin-fusion foods were wringing their hands, wondering when they would get arepas, Cubanos or island tacos again.

The answer arrived with the opening of Piglatin Cocina in late January at 2825 Dublin Blvd.

Velez warns, "Some things are not complete. We are doing minor menu tweaks and other things, like getting high chairs for babies. And our hours are not set in stone."

The good news is: Two places will offer Velez's creative Latin-fusion dishes, the new eatery and the food truck when it's back on the road.

"I want to focus on the restaurant," he said. "The truck will be put into operation later."

The new menu is more extensive, and the Cocina has a liquor license. Look for $2 tacos and Tecates on Thursdays. Raise a Dos Equis, and cheer Velez's new venture. Suggested hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, But call before you go: 347-1144, facebook.com/piglatincocina.
