PhoWheels is ForReals!

Sorry about the title.  I couldn’t resist.

The only Vietnamese food I’ve eaten is Pho.  To me, it is the Asian version of the chicken noodle soup.  When I’m sick, pho is what I want.  Also, when its cold outside, I want Pho. Basically, I like Pho. I’m also mostly vegan/vegarian (75% to 90%). I’m Vegan/vegetarian because I feel great when I don’t eat meat and dairy and I’m mostly  vegan/vegetarian because, well, I love the taste of Korean BBq, chicken parmigiana, brie cheese, etc.

You’re probably thinking, “Where’s this going?”.  Well, last week, I had one of the best vegetarian dishes, ever, period. And yes it was from PhoWheels, a food truck!

This amazing dish was the Vietnamese tacos with mushroom-onion tofu, cilantro, pickled carrots and daikon (yes, I had to look it up), sriracha lime mayo and roti canai (Malaysian flatbread).  My first bite, I thought the mayo overpowered the tacos, but by bite 3, everything worked in harmony.  The mushroom onion tofu was cooked amazingly well – just ever so firm on the outside and soft on inside and so very flavorful.  And I mention this because it’s difficult to cook tofu to get the right texture and it’s especially difficult to make it taste good, IMHO.  I bet there are some nodding heads out there.

The roti canai – It’s  flatbread that is just a little crunchy on the outside and thick-ish so it does not come apart when you eat the taco. This completes the package.

Only thing I regret from this PhoWheels experience is that I forgot to order a Vietnamese iced coffee.  Love that stuff.  Definitely ordering next time.

The Vietnamese Tacos is really a tasty dish and PhoWheels is now part of my “go to” trucks.  Thumbs up, 4 stars, “10”.  PhoWheels is awesome!

KBBQ Box – The Wings! The Wings!

APC_0097

 

I Love Korean BBq!  I mean I absolutely love the stuff.  My friend, Andy and I went to Korean BBQ Taco Box for lunch today and ordered the Spicy Pork Rice Box.  The Spicy Pork came with small salad, what looked like 2 sliced egg rolls (not sure what sauce but was tasty) and chicken wing.  Also served with Rice with chia seeds ( I could be wrong, I don’t know my seeds too well). The wing and the BBq were marinated in spicy Korean Hot Pepper Paste (aka ko chu Jang) BBq sauce.  Also came with a Korean Yogurt drink – I don’t know how to pronounce it, all I know that it is sweet, good and compliments the spicy pork and chicken wing,   The wing was fantastic!  I’ve had Korean BBq wings before and I think these were some of the best I’ve had.  The pork BBQ was very tasty, with the onions caramelized just right.  Both the pork and chicken were tasty spicy but not so spicy that you need to drink a gallon of water.   Wings were so awesome, I’m just ordering them next time.

Only thing I wish they had on the menu is something vegetarian, maybe K-BBq tofu or stir fry vegetable.

I do recommend them.  Good eats!

Hello Food Truck Connoisseurs!

Well…this has been a long time coming.  My friends know that I am a Food Truck-aholic because there is nothing like a styrofoam container full of food you get from a truck window.  On this site, I’ll review and post photos of the numerous food trucks in the Northern Virginia and Washington, DC area.  Will also check out food trucks whenever I go on vacation and trips.

So, follow me on my mobile epicurean journey!
