- It's time to add another food truck to the list--TaKorean! At TaKorean, you can indulge your cravings for Korean bbq with a Mexican twist. The new food truck hasn't hit the streets just yet but look for it on August 24th.
- Best Bites Blog reports the arrival of Sidewalk Sweetsations at the end of August. Hmmm... Sidewalk Sweetsations...that sounds like another food truck...and it is! Look for the yellow van around DC in late August.
- Tim Carman of Young and Hungry reported Wednesday that Ren's Ramen is scheduled to close on Friday, August 20th. It is possible the owners will open a new location in Bethesda.
- Grub Street, New York magazine's food blog, asked the question: Is D.C. the Next Big Food City? I am sure you can imagine the comments that followed. Here are some of my favorites:
"A small point:
Using NYC as the benchmark for what defines a great city in which to eat does a disservice to everyone. Saying DC isn't quite "there" yet because it doesn't have a good bagel is like saying NYC isn't all that because it doesn't have a decent waterfront blue crab joint.
DC is it's own animal. It has regional quirks just like anywhere, including NYC."
