PhoWheels DC Lunchbreak

20 Apr

I have a healthy appetite and can put away some serious food. PhoWheels DC put me to the test, and won the first round. Although I work at the epicenter of tourism in DC, there are little to no food options nearby. Thankfully the DC food truck scene makes it easier to have a great lunch of nearly anything you could want, just a short Metro ride away. The line was short, and food came fast.

When given the option, I almost always go with pork belly. Theirs is 5-spice rubbed and piled high inside split french bread. They also have a croissant sub roll, which I’ll have to try next. I’m also a sucker for add-on eggs. The Sous Vide fried poached egg is amazing, and completely indulgent.

Honestly, I only made it through half of the banh mi – eating the entire egg, of course. It was delicious, although the Do Chua (pickled carrot and daikon radish) was on the bland side. Major fan of the thin strips of cucumber. Too many Banh Mi spots overlook this essential ingredient.

The cà phê sữa đá (ca fe sue-uh da), Vietnamese Iced Coffee, reminds me of an ice cream version. Perfect for the hot early spring day.

I’ve long been a fan of the spork – a far superior to their independent brothers. PhoWheels have CHORKS. Chopsticks + Fork = genius.  Seriously?

The CHORK!

Another bonus, they prepare amazing Vietnamese dishes off the truck. Check out their Instagram channel for inspiration.
