Food Trucks: June 4 & 5

June 4

Sang on Wheels will be making a Bannockburn debut on Sat. June 4 from 4-8 pm. Come out and support this hard-working female immigrant chef who hails from Laos.
Her best sellers are Veggie Tofu Drunken Noodles, Pad Thai, and Fried Rice dishes.

Below is her menu offering.

Here’s a bit more background on this food truck: Sang Alavi moved here from Laos in 1988 with $20. She knew two words in English: hello and goodbye. She worked as a nanny, a prep cook, a shampoo girl, a cashier and a cocktail waitress before deciding to go to beauty school. After owning a salon for seven years, she came up with the idea of a mobile hair salon. When the D.C. government rejected that idea, Alavi didn’t give up. She started a food truck instead. “On my first day, hundreds of people lined up at 13th and K for my drunken noodles. That day, I was so proud of myself,” Alavi says.

Shouk Vegan Restaurant Delivery

Shouk is taking orders here (choose Bannockburn Pool) or app until 4:30 pm day of delivery.

Shouk is an award-winning fast casual with a unique take on Israeli street food.  Everything is 100% plant based.  In addition to their veg burgers, they also offer pita sandwiches, salads, grain bowls and sides as well as DIY falafel and other meal kits.   And for sweet options, I must admit I am addicted to their lemon coconut date balls with nuts.  We are lucky that this healthy deliciousness is delivered right to our community every week.   And since our neighborhood delivery has been one of their most successful drops, the owners have offered up to 10% of their sale proceeds to go to the Bannockburn Community Clubhouse.  They hope that neighbors will feel good knowing that by supporting them, they are also supporting their community.
