Pepe, José Andrés' Food Truck, Hits the DC Streets Today

Star chef/restaurateur José Andrés launched his food truck, Pepe, today. It will roam DC serving Spanish-style sandwiches called "flautas," crunchy loafs filled with the likes of fried chicken, a pork burger, manchego cheese and Serrano ham, and roasted vegetables. Thirst quenchers include a nonalcoholic sangria and a housemade tonic. A brownie filled with hazelnut ice cream should satisfy your sweet tooth just fine.

While budding entrepreneurs use food trucks as a way to build up to a bricks-and-mortar location, Andrés, who helms numerous, well-regarded restaurants in several cities, is reversing the trend. His standing will likely influence the ongoing debate on food-truck regulation in DC and elsewhere. Follow Pepe on Facebook and Twitter.
