Bulgogi And Terriyaki Truck In Jessup
The city food trucks gets all the trend-hyping press, but Jessup is quickly becoming a place to sample side-of-the-road food.
The Jessup trucks don't move around, but they keep multiplying -- now with Korean bulgogi from a truck on Rte 175 a little east of the prison and the wholesale produce market. The truck sells bulgogi, teriyakis, subs, fried rice, and burgers. It appeared to be Korean-run, so I went bulgogi.
It's a tasty little lunch. It's not a Shin Chon Garden feast, but you get a full platter of meat, rice, salad and pickled vegetables. The meat was nicely charred, but not spicy like you might expect from Korean food. Definitely worth a drive if you're the type to look for something new at lunch. The truck's sign says Jessup Deli, so I assume it is connected to the deli at Rte 175 and U.S. 1.
If you're the type to drive for a little adventure, you should definitely try the run on Rte 175. Start with R&R Taqueria in the Shell station at U.S. 1. Then pass the prison and watch for a weekend barbecue with a Mexican flavor at Mel's Liquor and for the A&W Pit Beef truck at Duvall's Marketplace.
