Kalbi Wrap @ AZN Eats Truck
Wrap me in lettuce, its all about the food trucks this year! First thing, its a lettuce wrap? I am intrigued by this and just have to try it. Lettuce is not just there so we can say is healthier, no it truly adds a unique flavor. Eating the spare ribs by themselves and with wrap are completely different flavors. Great way to incorporate meat and veggies. So make sure to wrap it up! With so few things in there it had a whole lot of flavor. All it is char grilled short ribs, sesame oil, rice and scallions. It was hard not to just stuff the whole thing into my mouth. Tasted so good, I couldn’t get enough of it and thought about ordering a few more of them. Spare ribs were prepared to perfection with a nice glaze over them. Shows you that you can do more with less. Make sure to order this if you come across this truck at lunch time in DC area. Not just the best dish from Taste of DC, but probably one of the best dishes you can find in food trucks and restaurants in all of DC area!! Yea we said it and stand behind these claims, now make us some of this!!!
Corned Beef @ Carving Room
Carve up all my beef for lunch from this unique DC kitchen bar. First look and this is one very beautiful sandwich, sure like those beefy curves. I just want to carve it all up with my mouth. Its all about the meat, not much else there, but hey you don’t see us complaining. It taste so good, that you don’t need a whole lot of things and just let the meat speak for it self. Or shall we say taste for itself? Fan of the thing cut rye bread. It It added very little flavor and allowed us to really enjoy the beef. Plus a little bit of mustard for that extra kick. According to their website some of their beef is cured for 21 days. No wonder it tasted so good. They sure like their corned beef, the menu has several very nomnom looking sandwiches. Can’t wait to stop by and try the rest of their nomnom menu, maybe one of the corned beef sandwiches.
Kettle Corn @ J Wave’s Kettle Corn
Pop my magic corn! Great way to end your adventure with a tasty treat. I am a total dessert size queen and always want the biggest, but this small is way too big big. If this is small, I’m scared to see their large. Though for just 2 dollars, you really don’t need any more. Several people can easily enjoy this bag. This small bag was endless, I kept on eating and it just won’t end. Freshly off their kettle, the bag was so warm just made me want to snuggle with it. Mhhh you can feel all the popcorn love warms in every bag. Also, good way to stay warm on a cold day. Big things come in small packages, each poped into a very large ball of popcorn goodness. With a nice crispinesses on the outside, it just called for you to keep eating it on a go as you enjoy Taste of DC. Even after finishing the whole bag it still didn’t feel like I finished a whole bag. Very light and sweet this made for a great dessert.

Root Beer Float @ Thunder Beast
Thunder! Thunder! Thunder drink! I knew about beer microbrew, but never encountered a root beer one. Get ready to be amazed! There was choice of ordering just normal root bear, but the guy at the booth convinced us with his excitement and smile to get the floats. He is our kind of crazy! You can really taste the love of root bear in every bottle. Flavors were so much richer then the big brand names you get at the stores. Flavor didn’t longer in your mouth and your pallet was open to enjoy other nomnom things. Whatever ice-cream they picked for the float, just loved it! Apparently you can get a 5 gallon keg from their website!! Big benefit that there is no corn syrup, caffeine and gluten free. So really there is no excuse for you not to enjoy it! Thats exactly what ThunderCats needed to defeat the Mumm-Ra. Right now you can only buy it from their website, but I’m sure soon you will find this root beer all over the area.
