|Chicken Chili-rejected Hog and Hen|
Today I was going to continue my methodical efforts of trying each food cart in a row, but hit a wall with the first two. Hog and Hen, an Acadian kitchen, only offers two entrees a day, and today's choices were chicken chili and jalapeno macaroni and cheese. I like mac and cheese but opt for healthier options for lunch...and recently I've noticed that I get a stomachache whenever I eat beans...even white beans (which are my favorite, and were in the chili). In an effort to avoid stomach issues, I decided to skip that one today and return another time. (When I started these adventures, I told myself that I would skip a cart if I couldn't find anything appealing.) The reviews are great, so I will go back.

So it was back to my beloved Dosirak--they are the next cart in the line. They have a simple menu--serving teriyaki charbroiled chicken on a bed of rice (they are one of the few carts to offer brown rice!), with "mandoo" (Korean term for dumplings, or as they say in Japan and our family, gyoza) and salad with a delicious miso dressing. Not only is the food delicious, but it's also enough for two days--for $7, that's a great deal! Some might find the teriyaki sauce to be a bit sweet, but I like it.
It really does help, too, that the couple who run Dosirak are incredibly sweet and friendly...not just to me! They take a month each year to go visit Korea, and I know I'm not the only patron who misses their food.

My verdict: Of course, I'll be back.
