Imagine it. You're sitting at work in Middleburg and you're craving that delicious meal from Mokomandy in Sterling. While the trip to the restaurant is an easy one, you have a meeting after lunch and wouldn't have the time that this kind of mouth-watering dish deserves. Luckily for you, and for all, many Loudoun restaurants are taking their food on the road. And I'm not just talking about a booth set up at a local festival. Mokomandy, Pittsburgh Rick's, King Street Oyster Bar and Parallel Wine Bistro all have food trucks that bring food to the masses.
For the past seven years, and going strong, Mokomandy has been serving up Korean, American and Cajun fusion cuisine to restaurant guests. Head to Sterling to celebrate an uncommon and unique combination with dishes like Cajun Cassoulet, Korean Pot Roast Sliders, Bison Dumplings and more in small, medium or large portions that provide you and your family and friends a variety of options. If you can’t make it to the restaurant, then start following the Mokomandy Food Truck on social media to find out where you can get these delicious meals on the road.
In 2014, Pittsburgh Rick’s opened their brick and mortar restaurant in Downtown Leesburg to offer a menu filled with authentic, Pittsburgh-style sandwiches topped with fresh cut fries, apple cider slaw, and tomatoes in addition to wings and other deliciousness.
