Trucktoberfest

A nice relaxing sunset

Today in DC was the Trucktoberfest food truck festival over at the Union Market.  First up was Takorean, a truck I’d heard about before that as the name suggests serves Korean BBQ in taco form.  I was looking forward to trying it and I wasn’t alone, the line to order was something like a half hour long.  I had the bulgogi taco and it was quite good, almost worth the wait.  Next door was DC Empanada, another truck I’ve wanted to try.  Again the name sums up the food, as they sell empanadas.  I tried their daily special El Matador empanada, one filled with chorizo, potatoes and spices.  It was hot, crisp and very good.  Wandering around I next tried Stix, a truck that specializes in food on sticks.  I had their firecracker shrimp, which consisted of a skewer of five large shrimp, two slices of crusty bread and a tub of spicy sauce served in a cone of brown paper.  The presentation was nice, as was the food.  I finished the day at the Tapas Truck, yet another truck with a straight-forward name.  Here I had a chorizo sandwich with chimchurri sauce and a side of garlic fries along with a Coke to drink.  I pretty much inhaled the fries.  The sausage I lingered over while I watched the sunset.

Overall a nice dinner.
