Wandering Around: Interesting Food Trucks

As I wander away from the Triangle, I come across interesting food trucks.  Check out a few of them…

B.O.B. Lobster

I promise you, I left the States thinking it will be a detox from social media, everyday life, and food trucks.  As I was wondering the London Bridge area, I came across this.  A bunch of beach chairs and VW Bus converted into a food truck.  I could not believe it and was well needed as a pre-meal for our restaurant wait.  On the truck was Lobster Mac and Cheese and Ahi Tuna tacos with the opportunity to buy Brooklyn Brewing beer and Prosecco.  Originally Posted here.

London or Cap Cod?  I never seen a food truck scene like this!

 Goodies

I had rented a bike from the Capital Bike Share and dropped off my bike at L’Efant Plaza station.  As I walked toward the National Mall, I began to hear 50’s music. Here two men, looking dapper dressed men in 50’s soda fountain uniforms, stood in front of a 1952 Metro Van.  I nearly passed by the truck when a few words would stop me in my tracks: Red Velvet Doughnut.  Originally Posted here.  Follow them on Twitter.

Goodies: Out of all the trucks (everywhere) I have seen, this truck impressed me the most.

Red Hook Lobster

I’ll be honest – I hunted this truck down.  I rode the Metro from the Virginia suburbs an hour early.  I got to Farragut Square and circled the block multiple times to see the other trucks.  According to Twitter, they would be here today.  At one point as they were parking, I stood by and then they were move to another corner.  I followed and walked to where they were headed.  I stood their licking my chops as a line of 5 started.  As I stood there in the short line by the time the window was open, it probably was 5 squared (25 for math challenged).  For the first time, I had a lobster roll fresh from Maine in DC from a truck.  The other uniqueness of this truck, the first time I saw a fountain soda station on the outside.  Originally Posted here.  Follow them on Twitter.

 Brigade Coffee

Another cool truck is this Citroen H Van that was used a mobile cafe in Europe after World War II.  I discovered it on Twitter and tried it out on my last New Orleans trip.  Where they were was really cool, because it was highlighting local business on Magazine Street.  Originally Posted here.
