Just added to the Sugar & Champagne Affair’s food truck line up: Sabor’a Street!

Sabor’a Street, literally “flavor of the street”, is a food truck selling Latin-inspired street food to hungry Washingtonians.  It is the vision of husband-and-wife team Jorge Pimentel and Christine Sarapu.  Chef Pimentel, a native of the Dominican Republic, has worked his way up the ranks of some of DC’s most flavorful kitchens including Mark & Orlando’s, Masa 14, and Commonwealth.

The fare is Chef Jorge Pimentel’s interpretation of street food from Latin America, the Caribbean and Spain including staples such arepas, tostones, churros and more. Plus, their meat is all natural, grass-fed, and hormone-free, and we have vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free/wheat-free options available.

New for Sugar & Champagne this year, we’ve invited the top food trucks to join us in showing support for the Washington Humane Society.

The gourmet mobile meal units will be parked along M Street outside of The Ritz Carlton and ready to help us generate some pre-event excitement for both guests and their pets. Starting at 4pm, you will be able to stroll up to the trucks for a taste of everything from empanadas and mac ‘n cheese to pizza, churros and lobster rolls. The food trucks are generously donating 50% of their proceeds from 4-8pm on 2/1 directly to WHS so please make sure to schedule a doggie-friendly-dining walk on Tuesday February 1st and treat yourself to one of the tastiest delights to roll this way in a long time.

We’re thrilled to have Sabor’a Street,  Cap MacDC EmpanadasDC Slices and Red Hook Lobster Poundon board for the 10th Annual Sugar & Champagne Affair. If you haven’t indulged in the gourmet food truck trend yet, follow the trucks on Twitter to see if they’ll be parked in your neighborhood soon!
