Forget about D.C. Slices. This new truck, which can be found every Sunday at the Bethesda Central Farm Market on Elm Street, redefines the term “hot rod.” Fired Up Pizzas is a mobile pie unit with a built-in wood-burning oven. Its creator, Dennis Friedman, has a seriously gourmet background, including stints at Citronelle, Daniel, and Kinkead’s. Check out Friedman’s story about auditioning for Daniel Boulud on Thanksgiving.
More food truck news after the jump.
- TBD reports that another food truck/cart has launched in MoCo: Chez Dikel, which can be found in Silver Spring on Colesville Road, apparently serves a fusion of French and Malian dishes, although the writer shares no specifics on dishes. Like the District Taco cart, Chez Dikel fled to the ‘burbs while D.C. continues to battle over the vending regulations.
- Dangerously Delicious Pies, the Baltimore pie hole that opened a shop here earlier this year, is looking to take its act on the road. By the look of DDP’s Facebook page, the operation already has a vehicle wrapped and apparently ready to roll.
- Finally, Y&H received word through backdoor channels — as in the operation started “following” me on Twitter — that The Big Cheese will be hitting our streets soon. At first blush, DCRA had not yet heard about said Big Cheese. More as we know it.
