Normally I wouldn’t cover the launch of a new food truck in D.C. But the folks at Eat Sâuçá made it very difficult for me not to. First, they chose to stop a few blocks away from my office on their inaugural day. Secondly, the menu features merguez-frites and toffles. Merguez are basically French hot dogs, they’re our street food par excellence and toffles… well… that’s just a fancy word for waffles and Eat Sâuçá serves them with Nutella so I just had to order one!
Food truck fever hasn’t quite reached the same level in D.C. as it has in New York or Los Angeles, but the city is trying to catch up. No, don’t except D.C. Restaurant Week Truck anytime soon (though there’s still time to catch New York’s… it ends on the 5th) but do expect more food trucks roaming the streets of D.C. And don’t expect me to complain 😉
Give some respect to the Philly food cart scene! We have tons of amazing and well known ones!
