Foodie at a Food Truck
Thanks to the tweet above, I made the spontaneous decision today to join the latest craze of Food Trucks! I headed out (Washingtonian magazine was correct, it was gorgeous!) and found four trucks all within not even a 5 minute walk from my building.
One truck – Pi Truck DC – had just sold out of food. Definately need to catch them next week! The restaurant Austin Grill had a truck out, but my mom had just treated me to brunch there this past Saturday. Need a little variety right? Big Cheese Truck was also out, but as amazing as a brie-honey sandwich sounded, I wanted something a little more… substantial I guess is the right word.
So I went to El Floridano or known on twitter as FLmeetsDC. It was totally worth the long line. And I didnt need to stress about having enough cash as they actually took credit cards! I ordered a Chicken Chian Mai which was Kaffir lime chicken, perfectly charred tomato salsa, avocado, pickled onions, and my absolute favorite green: baby arugula – all served on a baguette. Oiy vey so yum!
Cannot wait to try another food truck, and thanks to Washingtonian for posting real time food truck positions!
