Saturday Breakfast of Champions: District Taco

21 Jul

I love those on a whim delicious meals and was fortunate to start my day with one today.  I had to get some routine car maintenance this morning so B followed me to drop my car at Midas for the day.  On the way back, Bryan was telling me about this highly Yelp rated taco/burrito spot down Columbia Pike he had heard of.  I explained I was down to try it sometime, but my head (and stomach) jumped elsewhere.  It landed on breakfast tacos from District Taco.  On Saturdays from 8 am – noon in the Courthouse neighborhood of Arlington there is a great farmers market featuring around 30 vendors.  Fresh produce, dairy, meats, among other food items are sold there.  Admittedly, we’ve gone by it a number of times just never bought anything or have a solid perusal.  We still didn’t purchase anything today either.  Oops.  The mission was to obtain breakfast tacos after all!  District Taco comes to the farmers market each week offering up corn or flour tortilla breakfast tacos as well as burritos from their traveling food cart.  I already know how ENAMORED I am by District Taco for lunch or dinner.  They have a freestanding location in North Arlington (the one we frequent), a location in NW DC, and the traveling food cart.  I like to think of DT as a fresher, more authentic Chipotle.  Each day DT makes everything from scratch.  Looooove.  I’ll share those food porn pics another day not to worry!

For $5, I got 2 breakfast tacos in corn tortillas as I feel corn trumps flour any day of the week.  Here is the nitty gritty on the contents of my tacos:

  1. Egg, cheese, chorizo sausage, pico de gallo, and guacamole
  2. Egg whites, bacon, fresh jalapeno, pico de gallo, and pinto beans

To make this breakfast even more champion-like, I paired it with a Starbucks Iced Skinny Caramel Macchiato.  I think I could bang out a do over like right now actually.  If you are an Arlington/DC resident or ya know what just let’s get really real here… a DC metro area resident/commuter, you are cheating yourself if you don’t find a way to try District Taco.  My name is Carrie Bean and I approve this message.
