Staycation: Food Truck Friday

June 15, 2012

We have a lot of great restaurants in DC but for lunch — especially when you’re limited to grabbing something quickly to take back to your desk — there are a finite number of interesting options.

Food trucks are a saving grace. Every day, a rotating 12-15 food trucks descend on Farragut Square (and many more visit other parts of the city and ‘burbs) to dole out everything from Korean tacos (TaKorean) and overstuffed burritos (Sol Mexican Grill) to restaurant-worthy homemade pasta (Basil Thyme), deep dish pizza (Pi) and lobster rolls (Red Hook Lobster). There’s a traveling carnival (fojol bros.) with Indian, Ethiopian and Thai influences, and a rolling bakery with local milk and fresh cookies (Captain Cookie and the Milk Man).

José Andrés even has a food truck (Pepe)!

And if food trucks don’t come near your office, there’s always once-monthly Truckeroo at Nationals Stadium.

So many options… only one lunch a day… which food trucks do you recommend?

    I’ve never eaten at a food truck in DC but surprisingly Orlando, where I just finished school, has quite a lively food truck scene!

    I haven’t tried any DC food trucks either, but I really like this new wave of interesting food trucks that are helmed by smart, young people. Basil Thyme almost seems worth a trip to DC in itself.
