Food Truck Fun




A few weeks ago our apartment complex started hosting a "Food Truck Night" on Wednesdays from 5:30-8pm. They hire 4 or 5 popular food trucks from the DC/ Alexandria area and there is always an eclectic variety.



The first time they had it I wasn't really a fan of the options so I passed but last night there were a few that sparked my interest and I decided to take the dogs on their night time walk while picking up some dinner.


Unfortunately, Wednesday is the one night Eddie isn't around for dinner so I went alone but got something for him to enjoy as a late night, post-work treat. Both of us had our hearts set on Ada's kitchen: Chicken strips & mac and cheese please! However the line was so long that by the time I was the third person from the front they sold out of both.

I ended up going for the Mexican option which was South meets East. Eddie opted for three beef tacos while I got the vegetarian burrito bowl and we both got a homemade cherry limeade.

Beef Tacos: Barbacoa, pickled onion and cabbage, red radish and sriracha crema 
 
The tacos were a huge hit for Mr. Ed. He said he wasn't sure how he would like it because of the pickled cabbage, but he was pleasantly surprised once he ate them


Vegetarian Burrito Bowl:  Avocado, black bean corn salsa, lime crema, cilantro over steamed jasmine rice

In a word... Amazing. The lime crema really tied in all of the fresh ingredients and flavors. I was really surprised at the size of the dish and couldn't finish it all so I am so excited to have left overs for lunch today!

I hope our complex continues to host food truck night through the fall, it was a great way to meet some neighbors, try foods I wouldn't usually have access to and support local businesses. 
Wins all around!
