Have you all been missing food truck posts? I know that I missed reviewing the various food trucks that I enjoy during my lunch breaks. However, I hadn’t been eating at any new trucks recently, so I didn’t have anything new to review. . . Until now.
I picked up my most recent box of Laderach chocolates from Chocolate Chocolate DC, my favorite DC candy shop. While over on that side of town (near the Farragut North Metro station) I saw that the food trucks were lined up around Farragut Square. I couldn’t resist checking them out, since this area has a few trucks that don’t come over to the area near my job (Union Station and Gallery Place/Chinatown Metros). I saw a few trucks that I’d never seen before, then I laid my eyes on Himalayan Soul Food.
A Himalayan food truck? A truck that describes itself as having “soul food”? This was too intriguing to pass up: I had to check it out.
I ordered the vegetable momo, a dumpling entree, with potatoes as a side. The momo was served piping hot, but the potatoes were cold/cool, almost like a potato salad would be. The entree had generous portions: 12 momos and a large scoop of the potato (almost) salad. Each dumpling had cabbage, carrots, and other goodness inside. The flavor? Out of this world. I ate half of the meal for lunch and saved the other half for dinner.
After eating a couple of momos.
Down to my last bit of food
I’ve never tried Himalayan food before but this restaurant has made me a believer! I can’t wait to return
