Far East Taco Grille: C-C-C-Combo Breaker

Far East Taco Grille is a truck that I have been meaning to try for a very long long time.  The reason it has taken so long is their constant, huge line of customers.  These guys are real players on the foodtruck scene, drawing massive crowds even at major food truck centers where they are not the only option.  So, what do they offer that other trucks don’t?  What do they bring to the table to attract the lunch time horde over and over?  Is it the sexy/sleek all  black truck or the low price tag?

Arthur Treacher’s Fish and Chips and Bulgogi

In the Ledroit Park neighborhood — on the border with Shaw — on Florida Ave, you find a curious site. Sitting at 400 Florida NW is an Arthur Treacher’s Fish and Chips. Now this in and of itself wouldn’t be that curious. There are roughly 45 Arthur Treacher’s in the United States, but this is the only of its kind. Why? Well a sign on the exterior this Arthur Treacher’s proclaims $6.99 for Bulgogi and Rice. This isn’t an uncommon trend. A number of Korean owned restaurants have branched out from their traditional roots and added bulgogi or bibimbap (King Street Cafe, which will appear here later is one such restaurant).

Yellow Vendor: Truck Love

I have been involved in my own private love affair with food trucks for quite some time now.  Our relationship is exciting and ever changing.  Yes, sometimes food trucks let me down, and of course we have problems just like everyone else.  But we always seem to bounce back and I frequently find myself returned to the warm embrace of the ever-welcoming food truck community.

My relationship with these rolling restaurants didn’t begin with Yellow Vendor, but since first having it a while back, the sparsely adorned bright yellow truck has sat on page one of my little black book.
