Metro Halal Food Cart

October 21, 2009


To my delight I saw the Metro Halal Food Cart parked in front of the Arlington Courthouse Metro station today during lunch. I’ve never had a chance to try it because it’s usually parked in the Rosslyn area. I always wanted to compare their chicken and rice to the famous 53rd & 6th cart in NYC. I’m happy to report they are very similar in taste and presentation. Bonus points for the man in the cart for being super nice! Hope the cart parks in Courthouse more often. For $5.99 (chicken & rice) and $4.99 (chicken pita) it’s a great lunch option for people working in the Arlington area.

Found my new favorite beer. PranQster is a Belgian-style golden ale made with a mixed culture of antique yeast strains that produce a floral nose, a full fruity flavor and a clean finish. If you like Blue Moon you’re bound to enjoy this brew too (BM is a Belgian-style wheat ale).

Besides the taste, the best part about PranQster is that it’s traditionally served in a goblet rather than your usual pint glass. Classy.


You can find PranQster at Marvin – a bistro/bar that serves “home cooked classics from Belgium to the American South”. I can’t speak to the food at this establishment, but their selection of Belgian beer is extensive. The decor and overall feel of the place is really fun too. It feels like you’ve stepped back in time a few decades – in a good way 🙂
