Well, who would have thought that I'd be lucky enough to experience a Truckeroo in DC. The first day of the festival, May 17th, was one of four days of the festival (the rest happen once in June, July, and August). The festival is comprised of many food trucks from the area and offer special menus or their signature dishes. The event took place at the Fairgrounds in Washington, DC. Being my first time visiting the capital of America, it was super cool to be a part of something that has been fairly new in the food world. Food trucks were never really a novelty, but now with social media and more fancy looking and appealing trucks, the food truck industry has rocketed sky-high. It's amazing how much dedication chefs put into making food in their trucks, prepping in a kitchen the day before or morning of. Serving many customers throughout the day and making them happy. The festival ran from 11am to 11pm - talk about a lot of prep to serve myself and many others! Now, the food trucks that I got to try were super tasty and a lot of fun to try. DC Empanadas was a delightful find (after doing some twitter research and reading reviews). They had a chili filled empanada and a specialty the WMD empanada. So good. The second truck was the Tapas truck - spanish dishes that included corn fritters, and crispy calamari sticks over garlic fries. Lastly, Takorean was a very tasty twist on tacos. Kimchi and korean styled brisket were just a couple of the simple but delicious ways to make a Korean taco.
Overall, Truckeroo was a fun experience. Lots of people came out to have favourites or to try something new. It's a fun family event and the venue sold drinks separately (non-alcoholic and alcoholic). The next date for Truckeroo is June 14th! If you're in DC, be sure to go check it out! You can take a look at the website here where they will tell you everything you need to know and which trucks will be at each event.
