Canadian Food Network Comes to Ballston for Rebel Heroes

A TV crew was in Ballston yesterday filming the Rebel Heroes banh mi sandwich truck for a special to air on Food Network Canada.

The crew interviewed several of Rebel Heroes’ lunchtime customers, as well as a local food blogger. They also traveled to Falls Church’s Open Kitchen, where the Heroes’ Cuban-Vietnamese ingredients are prepared.

The segment is expected to air on a TV program that will profile “the best food trucks in North America.”

The same Canadian TV crew has profiled a grilled cheese truck in Los Angeles and a schnitzel truck in New York. (Can someone bring both of those things to DC, please?)

In honor of their their time in the Canadian television limelight, the Rebel Heroes gang gave away free t-shirts and other merchandise to every 25th customer. They ran out of food within a few hours.
