  1. Not for long. District of Pi, the DC branch of St Louis-based Pi Pizzeria, launches their food truck this month, and opens their Penn Quarter location in March on Pi day. Their specialty? Chicago deep-dish. The First Pizza Eater created something of a stir last fall by declaring it to be the best deep-dish yet, to the consternation of his hometown.
  2. You folks are too rich for me. But I enjoy my vicarious gratification while munching my pretzels. Is there a thread on Chik-fil-A?
  3. If you are in Frederick, Howard, AA Co. keep an eye out for Mike's Gelato. Mike runs a food truck with his gelatos, and they are fantastic. He came to our neighborhood one night and now we are hooked... our favorites are pistachio, hazelnut, lemon raspberry crunch, and chocolate. https://my-site-108372-109500.square.site/ He posts his locations on fb and instagram. He also does delivery, but we haven't tried that. He is doing scoops again, but we have just been bringing home pints at $10 each. This is our affordable indulgence of this stay at home time. HIGHLY recommend.
  4. http://www.jerkatnite.com/food.html No affiliation with the former Ball or Nothing, to my knowledge. This take-out/catering/food truck operation is located on H Street NE. I've passed by several times in the last couple weeks, and there is always a line for the food truck there. And people down the street further sing the praises, too. Anyone ever try it before?
  5. Frankly . . . Pizza! is a mobile, wood-fired brick pizza oven run by Frank Linn, who makes pizzas at the Kensington Farmers Market (Saturdays 8-12) and other spots around the Kensington area (listed on his Twitter feed). It's not a truck, but a stand with a pizza oven on wheels. He uses high-quality, fresh ingredients to produce tasty, artisan-style pizzas. A worthy addition to the ranks of pizzaioli making pizzas in the Neapolitan style in the area, I've had the classic Margherita and the Mushroom (crimini mushrooms, mozzarella, Gruyere, porcini oil), which are both delicious and amongst the
  6. I went to a trapeze show up in baltimore that had some free snacks like homemade hummus and my own homemade carmelized onion dip but afterwards I was feeling hungry so I hit up the taco Truck near the corner of New Hampshire and East West Highway. I had a fun time ordering food from them since I don't speak much spanish and they didn't speak much english but I tried the Pupusa de Loroco having no clue what a loroco is (turns out it's a vine like flower plant, tasted a bit like spinach) and that came with salsa and coleslaw. A total steal for 1.50
  7. I can't find a thread for Timber Pizza Co., so I'm starting a thread for the first time! The bf, two friends, and I tried Timber (in Petworth, on Upshur St.) about a month ago, shortly after it opened. For a place that had just made the brick-and-mortar leap from a truck-hauled oven, Timber was impressively strong out of the gate. It was crowded on that Sunday night, and we were wary when we saw that you order at the counter and then hope to find space at the communal picnic tables. (Unless you manage to grab seats at the small bar in the back, where you can apparently order from the
  8. Enjoyed roughly my 10th (or so) visit to Habit Burger a few days ago, and it was its same sensational fast-food experience. I think Habit Burger would be a hit if it were to expand to the east coast, but with the distinct disadvantage that outdoor eating would not be the same....all year around in Los Angeles, but only a few months a year in most east coast locations.
  9. Thank the (somewhat undersized) scallop entree at the (somewhat overpriced, somewhat underrated) Church Street Cellars for sending me and my young dining companion on a dessert hunt, lured by the scent of a sign in the alley leading to the (somewhat underrated) Rose Restaurant, and allowing us to stumble, completely randomly, onto The Pure Pasty Co., opened just last week. What's the difference between a pasty and an empanada? An enthusiastic Michael Burgess was manning the register, having sold out of Sausage Rolls ($3.75), and having just three pasties left in the case. Me that I am, I bo
  10. 2 new BBQ places opened in the Heights over the past few months (Willow's and Victorian), and I finally got around to trying one. Scott Sandlin wrote a glowing review over on Houston Food Finder, and I largely agree with him. We got a couple 2 meat plates, with brisket, ribs, and turkey. The brisket was nicely done, moist, with well-rendered fat. Assertive pepper bark, just as I like it. The ribs were similarly seasoned, and juuuuust a little on the tough side. Not "tough," just not quite as tender as I'm used to. The turkey was very well done - juicy and so, so deliciously smoky.
  11. Houston is a taco-rich environment, and I had come to believe that at a certain level of goodness, all tacos kind of play at the same level, without stand-outs. I was wrong. The tacos at Tierra Caliente are the truth. These are the Platonic ideal of taco. They are the essence of taco-ness. I sampled 3: lengua, pastor, and barbacoa. Both the corn and flour tortillas are excellent, each spending a little time on the griddle before getting wrapped with the meat and a generous sprinkling of onion and cilantro. Both red and green salsa tasted fresh and bright, with a little bite, but not s
  12. It's a rather open looking yellow cart. I'm not sure how it's going to handle the winter weather. There are two food options - bulgogi and chicken teriyaki. Both are made on the spot in woks. All choices come on rice with a side of iceberg lettuce with a soy sauce-based dressing and kimchee. You can also ask for sriracha if you want. The bulgogi was decent - not anything spectacular, but compared to a lot of what I've had within DC pretty good and a good deal at $6.75. The kimchee wasn't too fermented, so the cabbage was still light and crisp. I'm not sure if that will change the longer t
  13. Though we were generally operating in the Fish Tales-type space, Rosenfeld's Jewish Deli was easily the best meal had this week. Two eggs any style (5.95) were perfectly over-easy with a chewy, tangy, dense bagel and potato latkes that contrasted a crisp exterior with fluffy interior. Sit outside in the morning and watch the Coastal Highway traffic slowly come to life with sea breezes to accompany--this may be the most comfortable and sated you will be all day. I went back two mornings later, wanting to leave the City on a high note, had a two eggs bagel sandwich (5.95 + 1.00 for Swiss chee
  14. Lemongrass Food Truck Banh Mi is lackluster. The roast pork has the red sheen that Asian roast pork typical has, but I'm going to assume its just food coloring, because otherwise the pork has little flavor. The pickled carrot and daikon just tastes sweet. The roll is supermarket quality similar to something you can buy at Giant or Safeway. At least the cilantro is fresh. At $8 it's not worth the money. Sorry for the crappy photo.
  15. Hello Everyone, I am exploring catering options for an event for my condo. We want to do a summer party and will have around 50 likely attendees. I was hoping to do some fun, summery food perhaps bbq or etc. We can't have a grill on our property, due to Arlington Code, but my condo has culti sacks where roads end on either side and we might be able to get a permit to use that space and if so would meet the setback requirement. I am also not opposed to a food truck or just normal catering, but I want the food to be something to attract people to want to come to this event (it is really
  16. Two words: toasted brioche. One3five is a food truck that sits where the old Alibaba Falafel truck was before they got kicked out, by the Women's Cooperative Market on WIsconsin and Willow Lane. Unlike other food trucks they don't really roam. These guys are consistently making the best sandwiches I've eaten in Bethesda. My favorite so far is the ironically named Knot Kosher, which is roast pork, bacon, slaw, and chipotle mayo on butter toasted challah bread. The Turkeylicious is also great: it's your standard bacon turkey sandwich except on brioche with avocado and cranberry mayo. They als
  17. Café Rue is a new place that opened up in the strip mall on Route 1 next to CVS and Myong Dong (Oriental Noodle). It replaces the Vietnamese restaurant which used to be there. Their specialty is Chicken and Waffles, which they do well. I had the classic version, which was three pieces of nicely fried chicken breast on top of a fluffy waffle. The chicken ran a little bit on the dry side, but it was still tasty for white meat, which I usually avoid. Hot sauce and maple syrup came on the side. Next time I'll definitely try one of the specialty versions, which include Red Velvet Chicken and Waffle
  18. There doesn't seem to be a thread yet on this cute pink cupcake truck. Their website is here. Link to their twitter page with updates on their location is here. Writeup in Washingtonian here. I haven't been in the same neighborhood yet to sample a cupcake. What do folks think of them?
  19. Please move this if I am wrong, but I did not see a topic for the Corned Beef King. The king has a food truck and sells full time from the Exxon station in Olney. My parents still live there and picked up sandwiches this afternoon, and I was very impressed. We split two sandwiches between the four of us and it was plenty of food for the non-famished. They aren't Carnegie deli style, but definitely ample for the $10 price tag per sandwich. The meat leans toward moist rather than lean which made it more enjoyable at the time and slightly less so later, when cool (though those who don't mine fat
  20. I visited Jesus' taco truck for the first time a couple days ago, and I have to say it's really good. Really really good. It reminds me a lot of the tacos I've had in Mexico which is honestly the highest praise I can give. I've tried the pastor (spicy pork), chorizo and asado (grilled beef) so far. The best is the pastor. Oh have I missed pastor tacos. Other fillings are tongue, and chicken. Have not tried those yet. I also see Res (beef) on there, I'll have to ask about that. By the way, no other options. No veggie, no fish. Its pretty cheap, $2 per (cash only), and they are open every day
  21. This week starts the soft open of Astro Doughnuts... they are open from 8am to sold out, which apparently only took 90 minutes this morning. They reopened at noon with limited doughnuts and buttermilk fried chicken. I did not attempt to go get doughnuts today. Astro Doughnuts 1308 G Street, NW Washington DC 20005
  22. Impulsively, I bought ice cream from The Orange Cow ice cream truck today. It was parked by Eastern Market. I've seen it in the same spot before, on NC Ave. just to the east of 7th Street, and today I succumbed. There was a rabid fan of the truck and its products in front of me in line, raving about the peanut butter ice cream sandwiches they'd had at some event. It turns out they only have those for special events. Today's menu had ice cream in cups, floats, and sundaes, as well as frozen bananas, and (I think) smoothies. I went with mint chocolate chip in a cup. It was two medium siz
  23. The Karat Cakery food truck (@karatcakery) sells carrot cake, carrot cake cupcakes and ice cream with carrot cake. So if you don't like carrot cake, don't bother! If you do, however, the carrot cake cupcake with pecans is really divine. They put the cream cheese frosting on the cupcake right after you order it. The truck was at Farragut North yesterday (Wednesday) although I don't know their schedule.
  24. I liked the tofu taco--it was moist with a moo shi pork flavor. The chicken in the chicken taco was a little overcooked, though. Didn't sample the bulrogi/kimchi combo because I am a weenie. Definitely a good value for the money by L'Enfant Plaza standards, but not sure I'd stand in line 50 minutes again. Folks texting their buds into the line, and people ordering for their office added to the wait time.
  25. No website that I could find, so here is their twitter: @HolyCrepesTruck Le Menu is here. This truck has been visiting a parking lot near my office the last couple of weeks. I have gone twice, and found both of my savory crepes delicious. The pesto aioli has been in both, and it's phenomenal. Today's was bacon, ham, mozzarella, onion, tomato, aioli. I have never had a savory crepe before but these are nice and crispy on the outside and you can almost eat them like a burrito until gravity and wet ingredients collapse the last few bites which are then finished with a fork. Being able t
