Food Truck Fight: Yellow Vendor vs. BBQ Bandidos

What's the best food truck in Washington? You tell us.


It's an international barbecue battle this afternoon: Andy Kim and his Yellow Vendor truck, usually parked at 12th and F streets, Northwest, are the source of Korean bul goki, beef marinated in a sweet/salty mix of sugar, soy sauce, and garlic. It doesn't have the bells and whistles that lots of new trucks do, but the Yellow Vendor wins lots of points for simply delicious food. BBQ Bandidos, which roams Arlington, brings to the table Carolina pulled pork, Memphis brisket, Texas grilled chicken, and Mexican carne asada, carnitas, and chicken with salsa verde
