Takin' It From the Street

A food truck inspired station concept adds variety to the menu Restaurant Associates offers at the U.S. Senate's Dirksen Cafe.

Restaurant Associates launched a food-truck-inspired menu program to freshen up the choices in the U.S. Senate's Dirksen Cafe that it operates on Capitol Hill. The first three days of the promo July 14-16 featured Indian, Salvadoran and Vietnamese specialties, respectively, of the type one might find from ethnic cuisine based food trucks.

For example, the Indian Food Truck menu included Spiced Salmon Kebabs, Vegetable Samosas and Rajma (kidney beans in a spicy sauce over rice) while the Salvadoran offerings included Panes de Pollo (a kind of chicken sandwich), Pupusas Revueltas (thick corn tortillas filled with cheese, beans and pork), Yucca Fritas and Salvadoran Guacamole. The Vietnamese fare featured Five Spice Chicken, Chile Garlic Tofu and Vietnamese Green Salad.
