This week we take a look at the District’s booming food truck scene, which has grown exponentially since mobile eateries starting flooding the streets two summers ago. Whether you’re looking for a quick lunch, a midafternoon pick-me-up, or late night bite, these meals on wheels are worth tracking down and checking out.
Snackaholics love this poppery-on-the-go for their politically themed popcorns that bear names like Congressional Cheddar, Capitol Caramel, and K Street Kettle Corn.
In case you were wondering, the name stands for Purveyors Of Rolling Cuisine, but it’s also a nod to the divinely delicious pulled pork that stars in the truck’s signature barbecue sandwich.
Boasting a “champagne taste on a sarsaparilla budget,” this gourmet focused venture offers up a revolving, seasonally inspired menu that has included Thai style pulled pork sliders, steak frites, ceviche, and watermelon and goat cheese salad.
This colorful collective boasts four trucks that each specializes in a different ethnic cuisine: Merlindia (Indian), Benethiopia (Ethiopian), Volathai (Thai) and Rolling Silence (Indian-accented lassipop popsicles).
