My poor co-worker and friend, Kerry, got stuck with jury duty, which has turned into 4+ week affair. Being away from work that long is bad enough, but she also missed spring break! She said the best part of losing all that time was the hour-long lunch break everyday to walk around the city and sample new restaurants and try food trucks! Well, of course we wanted to join her on her quest. Being on spring break gave us the opportunity to go into the city mid-week, so we hopped on Twitter and figured out the best menu & location. We came up with Sauca, which is one of the "oldest" food trucks in DC. They're so popular, they actually have 4 trucks. The menu features hand-held wrap-type sandwiches that come from various regions around the world.
We tried the Butter Chicken and the Beef Shwarma (pictured here) and BJ also tried the Fish Tacos.
The Shwarma was BJ's favorite. He felt it was juicy and flavorful, while it was a tad salty for me. I thought the Butter Chicken was fantastic, great flavor and it has cilantro rice, which is always a plus in my book. He thought the tacos were good but not outstanding. Kerry also had the shwarma and enjoyed it. We also loved sitting on the steps of the Portrait Museum on a sunny day, people-watching. 8/10.
And, what jaunt into DC is complete without a cupcake? We walked a few blocks to Crumbs and got a vanilla vanilla, carrot cake, and a chocolate peanut butter.
