The food trucks are all over Washington today, from Doug the Food Dude at Tysons Corner to the Big Cheese up in Tenleytown. Your best bet in finding a food truck may be in Farragut Square. Personally, we'd make the trip to Franklin Square for El Floridano's chilled cucumber-and-red-grape soup—sounds like the perfect way to fight off this humidity. Choices, choices.
Farragut Square (17th and I sts., NW), where you'll find Fry Captain, Saucalito from Sâuçá, Pi Truck, DC Slices (20th and L sts., NW), Sidewalk Sweets (third stop), and Benethiopia from Fojol Bros.
Franklin Park (13th and K sts., NW), where you'll find El Floridano, PORC, and Tasty Kabob.
NoMa (First and N sts., SE), where you'll find Curbside Cupcakes (Pinky 3's third stop).
State Department/West End area (around 20th St. and Virginia Ave., NW), where you'll find Eat Stix, Basil Thyme, and TaKorean. DC Slices is nearby at 20th and L streets, Northwest. Sidewalk Sweets is nearby (first stop at 23rd and E sts., NW; second stop at 21st and M sts.).
Tenleytown, where you'll find Big Cheese.
Van Ness, where you'll find Red Hook Lobster.
