Thanksgiving

I want acknowledge a very tragic accident that occurred last week here on the campus of the George Washington University. A food truck, that little falafel bus, caught fire and injured those inside. I never ate there but I know that it was well liked. I wish those injured a speedy recovery and I hope…

Far East Taco Grille

I don’t know what this recent trend of Asian-Mexican fusion is about. It’s everywhere. Korean tacos and burritos. I’ve even seen Mexican sushi. Moreover Asian condiments have taken America by storm, we are putting Sriracha on everything these days. We are topping even the strangest things with kimchi. The internet tells me that there is…

Dangerously Delicious Pies

Pie is a special thing. Pie gives me a reason to live. Pie fills the sadness and loneliness deep within my soul. A creamy filling, whether sweet or savory, surrounded by a pillow of flaky, crispy crust, what more do I need in life? So when I found a truck that specializes in pie, I…

The Adams-Morgan Apple Festival

I’m from New York, just outside the Big Apple. Every year, during Columbus Day weekend, my family would pack up the car and trek up the Thruway, three hours, to visit my crazy extended step-family in Albany. On the way, we would stop to go apple picking. Now I’m biased but New York has the…

On the road: Chicago

I had never been to Chicago before. My traveling companions have never been to Chicago. I also felt a calling to Chicago, like it was some place I was suppose to go. For years, this thing inside me said, go to Chicago. I finally did it. I was nervous. Me, proud New Yorker, to try…

German Luncheon

Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. The leaves are changing, hockey is back, and I’ve already given up on the Jets. More important, for three magic days, The United Church (on G and 20th NW) hosts a German Luncheon. Warning, I don’t actually have any pictures of the food because…

Nats Park

ITS OCTOBER. Time for the MLB Playoffs! I grew up in NY, a proud NY Yankees fan. Before they built the new stadium, my dad and I went to many a ballgame (the new stadium made it completely unaffordable and I lost my love for the Yankees). Now that I have moved down to DC,…

Carnivore BBQ

Carnivore BBQ is a special kind of truck. A magical one-man show. A, truck, a smoker, a dedicated owner, and lots of loud grateful dead music. This is my kind of place. Choose from pulled chicken, pulled pork, or brisket. Top the sandwich off with slaw and your choice of sauce and your set. Their…

District House Basement

I live in GW’s new District House where the halls smell like trash and the trash gets stuck in the chutes. It is an active construction site. I’ve considered buying a hard hat, though admittitedly, it would make me look like Mike Dukakis in the tank. Other issues include: New District House residents face heat…

A Trip to Union Market

Ok. Fine. Union Market is neither a pop-up nor a food truck. I get that. I know it is only week three of my blog and I am already breaking the rules, but you know what, the places in Union Market are kind of like pop-ups right? Yeah let’s go with that. Union Market: Nestled…

A Definitive Ranking of the H St. Food Trucks

Another School year has arrived. That means the return of parking-ticket-covered food trucks lined up and down H St. here at grand old George Washington University. Yes indeed, another opportunity to line up in the extremely hot or extremely cold weather for what is generally extremely mediocre food. I have decided to rank six of…
