Truck Stops: Where to Find Lunch on Wheels
Every morning, we’ll let you know where the area’s food trucks are rolling. By Kate Nerenberg
Comments () | Published May 6, 2011
After three days of experimenting with Truck Stops, it looks like the most popular format is the combination of the helpful Food Truck Fiesta map along with a list of "hot spots," or clusters of mobile vendors for the day. We'll always link to a truck's Twitter feed so that you can keep track of where your favorite vendors are, especially if they tend to move around throughout the day. As always, we love to hear your thoughts and will tweak our list accordingly. Thanks for all your help, readers. Now let's get to the important stuff: lunch! Locations and a map after the jump. 

Chinatown, where you'll find Yellow Vendor (Sixth and F sts., NW), one Sâuçá truck, and one Red Hook Lobster Truck (Seventh and F sts., NW; another at Second St. and Massachusetts Ave., NW). Takorean is nearby at Metro Center (around 12th and F sts., NW).
