Snacking off the Nomad Truck

The Nomad Truck serves a variety of sandwiches and wraps, but on this particular day I was loading up on snacks for a movie marathon. And Nomad Truck delivered – in more ways than one.

The hummus was fresh and delicious served with soft, warm pita bread. Armenian potato salad was dressed with oil and vinegar, but in place of vinegar they had used lemon. Along with lots of herbs, it was just familiar enough, but still exotic. Za-atar chips were like pita chips encrusted with sesame seeds and sumac. The pucker of the sumac along with the tang of the yogurt dip made for an exciting experience, you know, as exciting as a snack can get. I look forward to checking out their wraps and ordering the Za-atar chips again.
