12 Latino Instagram Accounts that Will Make Your Mouth Water

Javier Cabral, Editor and Punk Rock Lover

Cabral is the west coast editor for Vice’s food site, Munchies, and has quite the affinity for punk rock. He’s been quoted as saying, “What’s more punk rock than getting paid to write about food?”

Cabral, who worked as a food scout for Pulitzer Prize-winning food writer Jonathan Gold, will probably be the first to show you a dish from from a cool under-appreciated spot in Los Angeles.
