Food Truck Round-Up

Ok, food trucks are becoming more and more popular, and there are several new additions to the DC scene… This is not strictly speaking a suburban topic… but plenty of you live and work in the city, so here is the skinny on the new (or notable) trucks – listed in alphabetical order:

Eat Wonky One of the newest additions to the scene. This truck most notably serves up Poutine – A Canadian dish consisting of French Fries covered in brown gravy and cheese curds. I have not had the wonky version, but this (delicious) dish seems more like late night fare to me – it may not be the best choice for lunch, but is worth a try!

Fojol Brothers of Merlindia – A “Traveling Culinary Carnival” serving up Indian style meals (both vegetarian and meat based) over a bed of basmati rice. Chips and Laasipops can be ordered as well. You can even enjoy your meal on one of the blankets that have been spread out around the truck! It should also be noted that the Fojol Brothers give back to the community, supporting local programs for at-risk youth and working hard at being environmentally responsible.

Fry CapitanServing up french fries and milk shakes. Choose regular, duck fat or sweet potato fries – then select one of 7 seasoning options, and one of the more than 20 dipping sauces to accompany your fries. 15 types of shakes can also be ordered – choose from standard flavors or experiment with the more exotic options such as Pistachio or Honey Lavender.

Red Hook Lobster Pound – Burst onto the scene a few weeks ago with incredibly popular Lobster Rolls and Shrimp Rolls, served with Cape Cod Kettle Chips and Maine Root Soda. The lines for this truck are long, but they move quickly.

Sâuçá – Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with global flare (and a smile!). The big draw here are the Sauca wraps – globally inspired dishes wrapped in warm flatbread. The menu currently boasts Mumbai Butter Chicken, Pork Banh Mi, Mexicali Fish Tacos and Medi Vegi wraps amongst other items. There is generally one entrée per continent and up to sixteen different sauces are available for you to customize your meal with. Also – try a toffle (Sâuçá’s take on the waffle) for breakfast or dessert.

TaKorean – Starting today (9/7) they will be handing out Steak, Chicken or Tofu tacos made with an Asian flair. The truck prides itself on making everything from scratch with fresh ingredients. They will also be donating 1% of gross sales to local non-profs. The truck will be around for lunches as well as late night snacks.

And… for Dessert (or a sweet snack):

Curbside Cupcakes – Cupcakes from a pink truck – what could be better?

Sidewalk Sweets – Serving cupcakes, cup-pies and cup-tails from a yellow truck.

Sweetbites Mobile – Find cupcakes, bars, cookies, scones and other treats brought to you by the dessert caterer of the same name.

    I hope the phenomenon of food trucks (gas-powered versions of street-food!) is on a roll. My question: does DC have all the wonderful food trucks in the area? Does anyone reading this blog, or the Suburbanfoodnerd herself, know of any toothsome food trucks trundling around Silver Spring, Rockville and Arlington? Perhaps that’s material for future investigation. I want a lassipop!

    I actually just ate at Sâuçá the other day, and had what apparently is a new wrap – an Italian sausage wrap… delicious!!! They also have sumptuous sauces that you can use, I got the garlic one and it was seriously good.
    The DC Slices pizza truck and Sidewalk Sweets are actually outside right now. Maybe I feel like lunch-dessert today…

    Just a heads up, the Top Dog truck is taking the food truck from urban to suburban, or at least to the Tyson’s area. Drop by one of these days and give us a critique. Were looking for some constructive feedback. Thanks.
