Food & Drink

A few years ago, spurred by the economy and some publicity by The Food Network, many chefs began taking their cuisine on the road. Once known as roach coaches, food trucks have become the next destination worth chasing as people line up to enjoy everything from hot dogs to Korean tacos. Food trucks are a great way to enjoy fine dining without the 5-star prices.

 

The Four Seasons Food Truck rolls through the country to spotlight regional cuisine in each city. The truck stopped in Philadelphia’s LOVE Park and Piedmont Park Farmers Market in Atlanta, among others. Philly locals enjoyed a cheesesteak egg roll by Chef Peter Rosenblatt. In Baltimore, tourists could nibble on the zesty Baltimore crab burger with fennel slaw by Executive Chef Oliver Beckert.

 

On the West Coast, Chef Roy Choi and co-owner Mark Manguera changed the scene by showing that trucks are about more than tacos. Kogi Truck offers Mexican fusion food, like tacos stuffed with Korean short ribs and kimchi quesadillas. Locals wait for at least an hour, but there’s good reason.

 

Food Truck Fiesta is a real-time automated website that shows food truck locations throughout Washington, D.C. The site tracks food trucks that offer bubble tea, paninis, crepes, Greek food and more.

European Commission Outlines Plan to Reopen Europe

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
