District denizens can now get their doughnut fix on the street from the Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken food truck. The mobile vendor, previously only licensed in Virginia, begins serving DC on Wednesday.

On the menu: doughnuts in flavors such as classic vanilla glaze, crème brûlée, and maple-bacon, and a lineup of fried-chicken sandwiches. Combinations like a crispy bird BLT, Buffalo chicken, and Old Bay-fried chicken come on savory doughnut rounds. Chicken fingers are also an option for those (kind of) counting calories.

Look for the black wagon in Friendship Heights Wednesday, NoMa on Thursday, and back in Ballston on Friday. Want to find it every morning? Sign up for our Truck Stops newsletter for the most current locations of your favorite street eats.

Update: Wednesday's stop has been cancelled due to rain, but the truck will be back on schedule in NoMa Thursday.
