Sang on Wheels will be making a Bannockburn debut. 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
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 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.
