Where is @TortugaTruck today?
Always on the lookout for a good lunch, I stumbled across Tortuga in Tyson’s Corner. Yes, the gourmet food truck has arrived and I haven’t been disappointed yet.
Officially added to my list of regular lunch spots and the chicken Guadalajara is my favorite sandwich.
The theme of classic sandwiches based upon the Mexican street “Torta” includes skirt steak, roast pork, and fresh grilled summer squash all made to order. It is a gourmet kitchen on wheels that is along the line of anything you have seen in D.C., New York or L.A.
The “Havana” is tasty
Seems that Andrew (you’ll meet him) decided that there was a good opportunity in Fairfax Virginia for a gourmet food truck and he seems to sell out every day. One day a week he is in Merrifield, Vienna or Reston so you will need to follow him on Twitter @TortugaTruck to know where he is every day… especially when you have a hankering for something exceptional.
Finding a hip sandwich truck in Fairfax isn’t going be easy, and I use an iPhone App call “Food Truck Fiesta”to see where these guys are in the DC Metro area including Arlington.
Skirt Steak, Roast Pork, Grilled Summer Squash
reading the menu made me hungrier!
My suggestion to Andrew: Get that detailed menu up on the web site since Tortuga’s site isn’t gonna sell someone sitting in their office on Greensboro Drive to actually run downstairs and head over to the truck.
Hey, they should and seeing your fresh menu will do it!
Yes, he does have a Tortuga web site if you want to read more about his truck.
If you are, right now, sitting in your office at Booz Allen, Cvent, Monster, SAIC or Wells Fargo then you might want to track this truck before he sells out for the day.
