On Friday Ben and I went to Truckeroo for the first time — and it was AMAZING!! I had heard about it ages ago, and have really, really been wanting to try it. It was most definitely a food truck bonanza!
I have gone to Farragut Friday before, but that’s for lunch, during work, so you feel rushed, and you have to pick just one truck and get something and go. At Truckeroo you can choose what you want at your leisure. AND – bonus (!!) — if you want to do a little food truck tour (which we did!) — you can do that too! 🙂
So, without further adieu, here is what we ate:
First we went to Borinquen Lunch Box and got chicken empanadillas. (Sorry for the photo of my half eaten one . . . I only remembered to snap the photo after I’d eaten half.)
After Borinquen Lunch Box, we went to TaKorean, which apparently is a super-favorite at Truckeroo! (And you can certainly tell because that truck definitely had the longest line . . . it never died down — people kept lining up until the end of the night!) We shared some Bulgogi Steak Tacos:
Here’s how this truck works:
- Choose your meat – we chose Bulgogi Steak (thin sliced fresh ribeye steak marinated in a sweet and spicy soy-based sauce)
- Choose your toppings – tacos come with all toppings and your choice of slaw, so that means ours came with Siracha Sauce (which is hot – FYI), lime crema, fresh cilantro, sesame seeds, and slaw
- Choose your slaw – Spicy Kimchi Style Slaw or Napa Romain Slaw. I got mine with the Napa Romain Slaw and B got his with the Spicy Kimchi Style Slaw.
Total = 3 tacos for $9, plus tax & tip
Well, as the popularity suggests, the food at this truck is deliciously out of this world! We both thought it was great, and I love how you can customize it. I often get overwhelmed when you have to customize stuff when you order. So – now that I know how this truck works, next time I know exactly what I would do differently: no Siracha, no cilantro (I’m slightly allergic, but eat it anyways sometimes, so no biggie), and always the napa romain slaw.
OMG – the next one is so so very exciting!! After TaKorean, we went to NeatMeatDC, the new food truck from the folks who brought you CapMacDC! They have “gourmet Sloppy Joe sandwiches.” We shared the “Stay Classy Joe” (The Classic Sloppy Joe kicked up!) for $7 + tax & tip. And to keep you neat (haha, get it 😉 ), they even have bibs!
After NeatMeatDC, we ventured over to DC Slices. B got some cheese pizza and I got (drumroll please) . . . pizza tots!! Mine were so very yummy-licious! 🙂
Total = $14 plus tax & tip ($8 for two slices of chesse pizza + $6 for the pizza tots)
And finally, for dessert, we went to Sinplicity Ice Cream. Sadly, they were out of their signature sinwiches. So, instead we had to get ice cream in a cup — but at least you got two different flavors and it came with a little biscotti-like cookie!
. . . Well, of course we didn’t write it down, and my memory is failing me at the moment, but I think these are the flavors we got –> Ben got Madagascar Vanilla + Raspberry & White Chocolate Truffle, while I got Cappuccino Crunch (with Chocolate-Covered Almonds and Kahlua) + Salty Caramel.
