Food Trucks were all the rage in 2011 and 2012. And as some of the good ones came and went (like the Fojol Brothers’ three trucks) and new ones took their place, the allure of newness, the beat of a trend started to fade.
Just because food trucks aren’t the latest and greatest fad, doesn’t mean there aren’t still good eating options available.
Quite the opposite. Many of the food trucks parlayed their success into brick and mortar establishments. Like DC Empanada and TaKorean at Union Market or Chupacabra Taqueria or Sol Mexican Grill on H Street NE or Far East Taco Grill on the edge of Capitol Hill NE. Hint: Tacos. Invest in tacos.
There is no better forum to explore the current crop of food trucks in one place then at the monthly Truckaroo festival held at the Fairgrounds (near Nationals Park). Even though the Nationals’ season has ended, there is still at least one reason to head down to this SE neighborhood.
This Friday, October 9, marks the last Truckaroo of 2015.
Don’t miss out. There will be music and games and look for some of the good options among the 20+ trucks, like:
- Korean BBO Box
- Tapas Truck
- Red Hook Lobster Pound
and one I’m curious about: Urban Poutine.
