‘Food Dude’ Brings All Natural Dishes to N. Lynn Street

There’s a (relatively) new food truck in town.

Doug the Food Dude‘ has been cruising the streets of Rosslyn since the beginning of the month. The truck serves a varying menu of all-natural (MSG and preservative-free) dishes. Today’s specials included parmesan-crusted salmon, Italian sausage albanese, steak  fajita egg roll and a variety of wraps.

Doug — who’s the one wearing the chef coat and shorts — says his journey to food truck entrepreneur started when his daughter developed food allergies to MSG and preservatives about five years ago. Because those two ingredients are found in so many restaurants and prepared meals, Doug had to harness his own passion for cooking to become an amateur chef, of sorts, for his daughter.

Eventually Doug left the government publishing business and decided to use his all-natural recipes as a basis to launch the truck. He serves breakfast and lunch on N. Lynn Street in Rosslyn on Mondays and Fridays. He travels to Tysons Corner on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
