Following the Fojol Bros.: The Newest Entry on DC’s Street-Cart Scene

The Fojol Bros. of Merlindia, a three-parts-Washington/one-part-Seattle collaboration, are DC’s newest food cart: a “traveling culinary carnival.” Serving what they call Merlindian food—popular Indian dishes such as chicken masala served with big smiles and a few winks—the Fojols have quickly become an after-work favorite in Dupont and the late-night snack of choice for bar-hopping crowds at the intersection of 14th and U streets, Northwest.

We followed them around last Friday, chatted with them, and asked passerbys what they thought of the food. Get the full scoop (and a hilarious video of the brothers) here.
