BEST FOOD TRUCKS 2012: #79

 

Tasty Kabob works the nation's capital pretty much from one end to the other (and deploys a sidewalk cart in Crystal City). The kelly green wagon is an elaboration on what New Yorkers would call a halal cart. The meat, in fact, is halal (the Muslim equivalent of kosher), and mostly involves very tasty skewered chicken or lamb, over salad, over rice, or in gyro sandwich form. The meatball kabob, available Wednesdays only, has a dedicated following. — Colman Andrews, 11/13/2012

Foursquare Tips

  • Lamb gyro is delicious!
  • Best halal outside of NYC, possibly the world?
  • Everything is better with hot sauce
  • Truck comes to Chinatown only on Mondays, so don't miss it.
  • Can't decide between Chicken or Lamb? Ask for a combo over rice - they'll give you some of each meat.
  • Serves only Middle Eastern dishes, including gyro sandwiches & its namesake kabobs. Tasty Kabob is also talking about launching a cart in the District.
  • Everything
  • Tasty Karobert, but you can call him Kabob.
  • best kebob in the gwu area :)
  • Get the combo (chicken + lamb) w/ chickpeas and salad. Portions are huge. Don't forget the sauce. You won't be disappointed!
  • The chicken and mushrooms on Fridays is to die for. Everyone should try it!
  • Extra spicy with extra dill sauce. Money.
  • Chicken and mushrooms on Fridays
  • Great food, but be careful when accepting free samples- they accidentally dripped hot sauce all over my shirt
  • They gave me WAY more food than I expected so I didn't need to eat dinner. And it was very tasty.
  • Ask for extra dill sauce, even if you've never been to the truck before. You won't be sorry.
  • Pretty delicious. I'm picky about halal meat, but this was better than many I've tried. Hotsauce was basically Tabasco, and the salad was all iceberg. All around pretty good. Chickpeas were phenomenal
  • If only their credit card machines were as fast as their cooks.
  • I love the rice + chickpeas. The spinach isn't bad--I actually ate some, which I generally don't do if it's cooked. When I left the room, my puppy horked the rest of it, so apparently we're both fans.
  • Definitely try the chickpeas
