Food Truck Fight: DC Empanadas vs. Choupi Crepes
What’s the best food truck in Washington? You tell us. By Kate Nerenberg
Comments () | Published March 4, 2011

THIS POLL IS CLOSED. WINNER: DC EMPANADAS

From the DC Empanadas truck comes a long roster of the South American turnovers, all made by hand. While the handheld pastries come with traditional stuffings—for example: ground sirloin, Spanish olives, hard-boiled eggs, raisins, and onions—other options have innovative, regionally-inspired combinations: Buffalo chicken and blue cheese; sliced ribeye, Cheez Wiz, onions; and prosciutto, mozzarella, and dates. The other dog in the fight, the Arlington-parked Choupi Crepes, boasts a strong culinary background: One of the founders has ten years of pastry experience in Paris and Washington. While you'll find French-like fillings—ham, cheese, lemon/sugar—you can also choose from other ingredients such as peanut butter, maple syrup, and marshmallow.
