DC’s First Kosher Food Truck

Washington, D.C.’s has food trucks with lobster rolls, BBQ, gourmet pizza, Korean tacos and cupcakes and now we’ve got a kosher food truck! Spike Mendelsohn and on-board chef Malcolm Mitchell have teamed up with Sixth & I Synagogue to bring you traditional kosher fare to the streets of DC. The menu is largely community driven so people can email sixthandrye@gmail.com with their suggestions. While the food truck doesn’t have a blue and black “K” that would mark it approved by the Washington Vaad, the food is 100% kosher. According to this article from the Washington Post:

“The food is all completely kosher, but it seemed to come down to the ownership of the truck,” said Sixth & I director Esther Safran Foer. “We rent the truck from somebody who is not Jewish,” who will use it to serve non-kosher food the rest of the week. The Vaad was “concerned that he not be in the truck while we are serving. But he has to be. He owns the truck and holds the license.”

The truck will travel to various locations and, at first, will only operate on Fridays before expanding its hours.
