Fojol Bros of Merlindia

fojol chicken masala

I’ve wanted to try Fojol Brothers of Merlindia ever since I read about them in The Washington Post a few months ago. Fun! Music! Street food! It sounded like a quirky bunch of everything, and having to track their whereabouts via Twitter made it all the more fun.

Today they hunkered down on a corner of Farragut Square at 17th and K, and I was there right as they were opening up for business for the lunch crowd. They had to prep a little before service, including a quick dash to a nearby bank to make some change. (I’m sure the guy didn’t look at all suspicious walking into a bank in his fabulous getup, curly mustache and all).

I got a ginger lassi pop while we waited for change, and it was amazing! Just the icy refreshment I needed to brave the suffocating D.C. humidity. The guy told me they were experimenting with different flavors, so was eager to hear some feedback. Obviously, I love ginger and I love sweet, so uh…this is a no brainer. LOVED it! Can I buy a lifetime supply please? Much appreciated. I won’t mind at all if they come wrapped in ghetto sandwich bags like they were today. X)

On to the food! Pictured above is the pick-2 size, which comes with rice doused in delicious sauce. Today their selection included two chicken dishes (chicken masala and chicken curry) and two vegetarian options (spinach & cheese or cauliflower & potato). I got the chicken masala + cauli/potato twosome. Very good indeed, especially for street food!
