Food Truck Fiesta at Farragut Square in DC

The food trucks were out in force today at DC's Farragut Square (see photos above), probably almost 20 in total, including my personal favorite DC food truck, Sauca,which featured everything on its menu today for only $5 (gotta love competition), including my personal favorite Sauca item Mumbai Butter Chicken.

Related, via New York Magazine: "Late last year, when Occupy Wall Street was kicked out of Zuccotti Park, protestors marched north and tried to occupy another public-private space, Duarte Square. They didn't last long in the space, thanks to aggressive policing and a less-than-hospitable landlord.

Duarte Square happens to be across the street from New York's offices (pictured below). Normally, it's a barren, gravel-filled space filled with seldom-used green chairs. This morning, there were four artisanal food trucks parked inside the park. There will eventually be six parked there three times a week."

MP: That sure seems like a major upgrade to me.

E. Coli on wheels?

Seriously, do these trucks have to pass similer sanitary inspections that normal resturants are suppose to pass?

Ummm, Juandos, food trucks DO have to be inspected by food and health inspectors and are held to the SAME standard as restaurants. So there's no more chance of E.Coli than your neighborhood restaurant.

And, the word is similar!
