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? No friends, the secret is customization.Read On
Usually when you hear talk of a fusion reaction, it is during a discussion about binding nuclei and the quest for a sustainable energy source. Well, the fusion reaction I had upon biting into one of Wassub’s delicious fusion sandwiches was a reaction of a different kind. The party in my mouth kind. The “why is my co-worker quietly moaning into that sandwich” kind. Fusion is a relatively common theme running through the food truck community. This is a good thing. It allows for more variation and promotes culinary exploration.Read On
For today’s post I decide that it was time I get out and hit the streets. I couldn’t let Steve have all the fun with our rolling kitchens. There are so many great ones out there. So many big names. Today I want to tell you about the one you haven’t heard of and why it might be the best one there is. In a city where food trucks have exploded, where every cuisine has a truck and every truck has a witty name, El Chilango is sticking to the important stuff, namely, cranking out insane food.
El Chilango isn’t a pretty truck.Read On
It is hard to make a food truck stand out in the difficult and competitive landscape of Washington DC’s rolling eateries. Some trucks fall through the cracks. It is my belief that this occurs most often when a truck refuses to specialize. The most obvious example of this is the nameless halal food truck. If you frequent Farragut or L’Enfant’s lunch hours, you have seen these. The all offer permutations of gyro, chicken or falafel with rice, pita, hummus and other various Mediterranean street food staples.Read On
Chupacabra, named after a spiky Mexican monster that has a knack for sucking all the blood out of unsuspecting goat herds, is one of DC’s best and most notable taco trucks. Now this is important for all of you food truck historians out there. The taco truck is one of the direct ancestors of the food trucks we know and love today. Unlike today’s fancy ethnic-fusion-mobiles, food trucks used to mostly park at construction sites and serve more simplistic dishes to a distinctly blue collar customer base. Taco trucks were very common, again due to the simplicity of the dish and I imagine, because almost everyone can get behind tacos.Read On
“Some claim the war of American independence was won by brave patriots on the battlefield. Others say by the pens of the great statesmen of the Continental Congress. No friends, the war was won by the Philadelphia Cheese Steak.” -Benjamin Franklin*
And the cheesesteak has been dominating ever since. A staple from the city of brotherly love, the cheesesteak is just what it says, a chopped steak sandwich topped with cheese. And as the food truck fleet has long been a bastion of regional specialties transplanted into our nation’s capital (like so), it was only a matter of time before we got a cheesesteak truck.Read On
Cinco de Mayo offered a maelstrom of events this year. From celebrating the holiday to the Kentucky Derby to the Mayweather/Cotto fight and a lot of good playoff sports, Eat the District had to choose how we wanted to spend our Saturday. Curbside Cookoff’s Trucko de Mayo featuring 45 food trucks down at RFk was a no brainer. Here was a chance to sample a lot of different trucks and take in the fun vibe on a beautiful Saturday. It wasn’t overly crowded when Even and Micah went (around lunch time) and the lines moved quickly.Read On
I love the Greek Yogurt fad. I’m not entirely sure I buy it, but I enjoy Chobani’s Blood Orange flavor more than anything. I vaguely understand it has something to do with probiotics, which are good for you and aid in digestion. Sure, whatever. I also love Frozen Yogurt. In fact I would say I like it more than ice cream (gasp!). So the marriage of the two must be the best thing ever right?
You’re not wrong. Ben and Jerry’s recently unveiled their entry into this new wild world of Greek Frozen Yogurt.Read On
The general consensus is that in order to get great BBQ, one must head south. Unfortunately, the great strongholds of American BBQ: Texas, Memphis, Kansas City, are something of a road trip away. Fortunately for us, the conventional wisdom does not necessarily apply here in the district. See, I have experienced some truly delicious Q by looking North. North to Montgomery County that is.
Curley’s Q is a relatively new BBQ truck based outside of DC, in Montgomery County. Started by the truck’s namesake David ‘Curley’ Cornblatt less than two months ago, this bright yellow number serves up copious amounts of hardwood smoked meat.Read On
