Food Truck

Just when you thought the concept of a taco couldn’t get any better, the TaKorean food truck rolls along and puts an Asian spin on the Mexican classic. Rib-eye steak, chicken or tofu come topped with your chosen combination of Sriracha, lime crema, sesame seeds and two kinds of slaw. The succulent, crispy meats are grilled at a high temperature, Korean barbecue-style. Though TaKorean opened a permanent outpost in Union Market (1309 Fifth St. NE), the truck is as busy and beloved as ever. H.S.

Whisked — BEST BAKERY!!!!




Water. Butter. Flour. The makings of a pie crust seem straightforward. Still, Jenna Huntsberger of Whisked! manages to weave magic into every pie and quiche she whips up. “We work really hard to make a quality product,” says Huntsberger, who admits she stands over new employees while teaching them how to prepare the crust for the first time. Whisked! doesn’t have a brick-and-mortar store; buy Huntsberger’s goodies at farmers markets, online or via CSA subscription. (Yes, a pie subscription!) H.S.



Whisked was also named a runner up in the Best Pie competition for Best of D.C. by Washington City Paper.
