I’m not gonna lie to ya, when I found out that DC was getting a lobster roll truck in June I nearly cried with joy. Lobster rolls are among my favorite foods in the world. Yes, I’m aware I’m a bad Jew but that’s neither here nor there. Anyway it got me thinking of what food truck I’d most like to see next. Personally, I’d love to see a really good Gyro truck. But then it got me thinking, should I be this excited about food trucks anyway? Because a restaurant that has a good Gyro will always be there and I can find it whenever I want. But with a food truck you have to get a bit lucky, lucky in the sense that it comes relatively close to where you are. Or do you think it is worth hunting down the food trucks as they are pretty easy to find on Twitter?
I guess this is a two part question – first, what type of food truck would you most like to see come to DC? And second, do you think food trucks are over-rated? When you find one you like how easy is it for you to actually get food from them? Do you find them convenient or a tease?
