Last Friday The Hunger Squad moseyed down to Half and M Street and checked out Truckeroo. As expected, we had a blast!
Bacon wrapped filet mignon via Stix.
Catfish po’ boy via Cajunators.
Empanadas via DC Empanadas.
Truckeroo is held once a month, right across the street from the Navy Yard metro stop. Admission is free and the next festival is July 13th. See you there!
The Rolling Ficelle is just over a year old but has already become a staple amongst the many food trucks DC has to offer. The truck offers six gourmet sandwiches (each $6.95) on soft baguettes called ficelles named after some of Europe’s most famous abstract artists. In addition to fresh ingredients like thin slices of prosciutto, spicy cherry pepper relish, aged provolone and mortadela cheeses; The Rolling Ficelle uses freshly baked bread from Lyon Bakery in Silver Spring, Maryland.
If you aren’t feeling a sandwich, The Rolling Ficelle also offers freshly squeezed lemonade ($2) and a salad dubbed “the Frida” (6.95), which includes watermelon, jicama, baby spinach and a house-made chipotle- Thousand Island dressing. However, the menu has a tendency to change with the seasons and many of the offerings are unique to the season.
I ended up going with the De Kooning Ficelle (pictured above), which is made with roast beef, provolone cheese, tomato, crushed cherry pepper relish, and topped with a horseradish mayonnaise. Everything about the sandwich was fresh. The veggies had a crunch to them and the provolone/hoseradish melded with the roast beef perfectly. Did I mention the bread? The bread is fantastic.
