The OSS Cafe (Pronounced Aus Cafe), formerly known as the Three Tables food truck, serves a healthy variety of Brazilian food based on the Gracie diet. For those of you unfamiliar with the Gracie family, they are legendary in Brazil and around the world for their Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or BJJ martial arts and self defense.

The gentlemen who helped us, Bruno, was extremely helpful and spent a good amount of time with me explaining their dishes and how they’re prepared. While he is not the owner of the food truck, the owner was well represented as Bruno was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable about every item they serve. It would be nice if every food truck had someone like him working there.
After talking to Bruno, I tried the steak plate. Their steak is 100% grass fed top sirloin and is produced locally. The steak comes in three options: one half pound for $10, one pound for $15 and one pound of just steak (no sides) for only $12. I chose the one pound plate with sides of two scoops brown rice and a nice fresh green salad with papaya seed dressing).
Like most people, I ordered it medium; it was cooked and seasoned perfectly. The brown rice and salad was also very nice. As you may have seen from some of my other reviews, many of the salads from other trucks just throw some lettuce on a plate with a few slices of carrot or cabbage and some dressing; however, that is not the case with the OSS Cafe. Theirs was a salad you wanted to eat. The lettuce was fresh and green, it had a lot of thinly sliced carrots, a generous amount of feta cheese and of course the papaya seed dressing was a very nice touch. For a place that promotes the Gracie diet, they backed it up with some very nice quality food.
One of the more unique dishes the OSS Cafe has, which I haven’t seen before, is the tapioca dish. To best describe it, it is like a tapioca crepe that looks almost like a quesadilla. It is mostly a dessert dish and comes with five different options. You can choose cheese, caramel with banana, caramel with coconut, peanut butter with banana and Nutella with banana. I chose caramel with banana. It tasted great and best of all, it’s gluten free! My wife is allergic to gluten so she was very happy I found this dish. She enjoyed it as much as I did.
Overall, I was very impressed with the food and service I received at the OSS Cafe. The prices are very reasonable. Their items range from $6.50 to $9 with the exception of their steak plates which start at $10. It would be hard to find a better value on the island for healthy food. Their drinks are also reasonably priced, ranging from $3.00 to $7.50. The OSS Cafe also serves up several styles of Acai bowls, which are pretty large so you will get your money’s worth.
The OSS Cafe is open from 11:00am to 9:00pm, six days a week (closed on Sunday). They changed their menu a few months ago which is also why they changed their name from Three Tables to OSS Cafe. Their new name doesn’t have a Yelp page yet. Below is a link to their Yelp page (under Three Tables); however, please note their menu is no longer the same as it was under Three Tables.
