About a month ago, Raisin Bread and I attended the DC Funky Fresh Foodie Fest (worst name ever, by the way) to see how much we could eat in three hours. Not really, but that’s what the event wound up being. For $45, we were entitled to tastings from ten different food trucks plus 10 alcoholic drinks and 2 non-alcoholic drinks.
We found out that items such as a slice of pizza or a sandwich count as “tastings” and came to the realization that we would not be making it through all of the food trucks.

We decided to be a little more strategic and try things that we already know we like or food from places that we have been wanting to try.
Taco from TaKorean
Buttered chicken from what is probably my favorite DC food truck: Fojol Bros.
Davis Ficelle from The Rolling Ficelle
I’m not sure how I kept eating, but we had only visited three trucks so far!
Time for a refresher! One of my favorite things about the festival was the beer tasting stations and our mini beer stein!
Pulled pork sandwich from BBQ Bus
It started raining pretty constantly at this point so I found myself standing in line at Jose Andres’s Pepe the Food Truck.
Futbol Club Barcelone and Jamon Serrano y Queso Manchego from Pepe
I can’t remember what these were but I think corn fritters and a piece of shrimp from Tapas Truck. I was unimpressed and very full.
Pineapple basil pop from Pleasant Pops
And one for the road from Curbside Cupcakes.
Eight out of ten….not bad! We skipped DC Empanadas and DC Slice and I also didn’t finish my drink tickets. Overall, I found it to be a fun event and worth the price of admission although I wish there was a non-boozy option for those of us who don’t want to get trashed.
