Best Food Trucks in Washington DC

Nothing like a perfect day spent in our Nation's Capital. Strolling the National Mall and taking in the massive marble political monuments is an experience to remember. If you can catch it in spring when the cherry blossoms are out it's particularly magical. Washington DC is one of the most visited cities in America: with world class art, food and entertainment. The District seems to be in constant fluid motion, as political elites gather at lunchtime to dine and talk shop, and lawmakers meet at happy hour to have a drink after a tough day on the hill. Residents here appreciate the finer things in life, and that is especially evident in the restaurant and bar scene. World renowned chefs and mixologists expertly combine freshly sourced ingredients, making for incredible culinary and beverage experiences. The food truck scene in Washington DC is an extension of this excellence, and foodies in DC are going to be seriously impressed! The District was quick to the scene when it came to food trucks, and now there are a plethora of them here. If there's one thing that both parties can agree on, it's delicious food.

Customer Service, the guy who was serving the food, seemed to be overwhelmed, and frustrated due to demand.

The chicken swarma was excellent; falafel wraps were pretty good (a bit bland); loved the baba ganoush. The wraps were missing tahini sauce - they were not only bland but dry as well.

The food was so delicious, all the rice was perfect with the chicken curry, and the chicken dumplings were quite yummy. Everything being hot-to-order made the pre-order choice a smart one. :)

This Sate truck had some amazing flavors and different variety of food. The peanut sauce was outstanding as well. Overall, the food was tasty. I have to to let you know the only reason for the four stars is the truck showed up an hour late for the event. However, the food denounced the lateness. :)
