Foodie the 13th
I came early for this one to enjoy more of the trucks and also space my intake so I won’t feel bloated. My first impression of Capitol Commons was it was a perfect place to run as it has wide sidewalk, low traffic and a refreshing view. Yes, I’m in a food event and the first thing I think about is how ideal the place is for a run. Oh well, let’s get started with this culinary adventure.
I took the all meat for the Pizza in a cone (Amazing Cones) and the cheese was a perfect complement to the meaty taste of the Pizza. The Bacon Cheese Burger (Great Burger Truck) was really tasty and their fries is far apart the usual fastfood fries as it’s cut and cooked just right and finely salted.
Next in line was Beef Shawarma (Shawarma Bros) which was also a treat for the taste buds and my first rice meal which is Honey Pork Asado with Rice (Ser Chef Lechon) which had the sweet taste of honey adding flavoring to pork asado.
Hungry Rover was the only food truck with seats inside the truck and I had Angus Beef Tapa with well done sunny side up and rice. Let’s just say, I love their Tapa and I now have a higher benchmark on how a tapa should taste like.
At that point, I think I am full so I proceeded for dessert at Mio Gelati with their fresh gelato flavors. This was the perfect way to end my eating spree. Everything I ate here was really a culinary delight.
A large chunk of the night was spent interacting with media and the owner of Hungry Rover Romeo Nacpil Jr. on the food truck business. It’s a relatively new business but is starting to gain a following. It’s also nice to see that each of the food trucks complements each other instead of compete against each other. The food trucks can also be an excellent additions to events. Another important ingredient I saw was the passion of the owners in offering a unique food experience to their customers and I’m sure the food truck business would be a success at Capitol Commons and would also make their way in other areas too.
The Food trucks would be in Capitol Commons on September so get treated to refreshing environment and great foods at the Food Truck Park.
