So it’s been about three weeks since I arrived in the Dulles Airport and took the first step into the US. As it is not a long time I haven’t found anything much different between an American university and Korean university. However, if there is one thing to point out, a long line of food trucks standing along the road was truly a curious sight for an exchange student. I thought that the food trucks represent the American culture in many ways – the fact that people sell and buy food on trucks seemed to emphasize how car is an essential part to American’s daily life. The wide variety of food provided – from Italian to Indian – also showed how multi-cultured this country is.
Apart from the cultural insights that they provide, the food trucks also work fantastic in daily life. Food trucks make yummy meals in just a few minutes and sell them at a reasonable price. Even more, we have more than ten food truck options every day to choose from! For busy students who need simple meals but still want to feel the joy from delicious food, there can’t be a better option than the array of food trucks standing along the H Street. Also for me, who is too lazy and poor to often get out of school to get food but still loves eating, food trucks are such great substitutes for fancy restaurants.
So, as a foreign student who is impressed by both the cultural implications and convenience food trucks provide, I have decided to blog on them. I will try different food trucks every week and make a posting on them. My reviews are prone to include subjective opinions but I’ll try to review the food from multiple perspectives, as much as possible. As a person who hates taking risk when getting food, this blog will be a great challenge for myself. However, as a food truck critic for this class and hopefully the GWU student community, I will risk adventure and make sure you guys can enjoy food without risk thanks to my posts.
P.S. Please do not hesitate to ask me to first try on any menus that you are interested in but are not confident enough to try on. 🙂
