What’s better than brunch and mimosas on a Sunday? Food Trucks that serve brunch and BOTTOMLESS mimosas!
This past Sunday I went to Taste on Wheels (hosted by the same people who put on Taste of DC) in the National’s Parking Lot. Tickets to the event were $5 for general admission (or $3 in advance) and $19 for bottomless ($12 in advance). It was slightly different from Taste of DC; there were less food trucks but on the plus side each truck offered a signature item for tasting at the price of $3.
My $3 treat was a french toast egg roll from a truck called “Bacon N Ed’s” who have been featured on The Food Network. It was basically a stick of french toast rolled in egg roll paper sprinkled with powdered sugar and cinnamon. Definitely a tasty snack!
All of the trucks had pretty long lines but when you’re having a good time with friends time always flies. To eat, I headed straight for the truck with southern cuisine. The menu at “Myra’s New Orleans” gave me flashbacks of my trip to Mardi Gras and I just knew I had to have it.
My best friend and I went with a simple order of red beans and rice (Popeyes has nothing on the authentic kind. Believe me) while my boyfriend decided to be spontaneous by ordering an alligator dog (basically smoked alligator sausage) and a shrimp po boy. All of the food was delicious (I snuck a bite of everything lol) and it definitely tasted like everything I had in New Orleans.
Last but not least, I just had to have something from the Duck Donuts stand. There isn’t one close so I had to take the opportunity while it existed. The experience was slightly disappointing. Because they had a stand outside the donuts were pre-made of course but their options were limited to 4 flavors. I opted for the Cinnamon Sugar but regretted it later due to the lack of frosting.
All in all, Taste on Wheels was a great experience. Very similar to Truckeroo or Taste of DC, just a little smaller. I definitely suggest putting it on your “Things to Do in DC”list for the next time it comes around.
