Wednesday – 5/5

Wednesday’s Food Truck Night features four vendors – Prescription Chicken, Saya Salteña, Astro Doughnuts, and Kona Ice (weather permitting)!  Note – no RASA this week.

Prescription Chicken: Everyone knows that chicken soup can cure practically anything that ails you, especially the kind you don’t have to make yourself! That is what Prescription Chicken is all about: delicious, additive free, all-natural chicken soup. Choose from a variety of chicken-based and meatless soups in personal size and quarts!

Saya Salteña – First time at Wyngate!  This vendor makes traditional Bolivian salteñas.  Salteñas are extremely labor intensive to make and require practice to perfect the intricate roping that visually distinguishes salteñas from empanadas and similar meat pies.

Prescription Chicken and Saya Salteña use the same ordering site – please see below:

  • Pre-orders: now until 12:00 pm on Wednesday, with pick-up at Wyngate Elementary on Wednesday from 5:45 pm to 6:15 pm

Astro Doughnuts and Fried Chicken: This truck provides a new take on the traditional southern combo of waffles and fried chicken.  The Washington Post crowned their crème brûlée doughnut “the city’s best.”
