Washington, D.C.–  Spanish award-winning chef José Andrés and his team at ThinkFoodGroup debut his first food truck allowing fans to savor his culinary creations on-the-go Monday through Friday, 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM.  Pepe, a nickname for José, the food truck is metallic silver, and will be serving lunch in Washington D.C.  Pepe will also be available for private events and will announce its locations via Twitter and Facebook. www.facebook.com/pepefoodtruck, and www.twitter.com/pepefoodtruck.

Pepe will offer lunch fare, with a rotating selection of “flautas,” based on the ultimate Spanish sandwiches José Andrés grew up with in Spain. “Flautas” are elongated, rolled sandwiches layered with ingredients, making them perfect for easy grab and go dining, and will include: Butifarra ‘Burger’: Spanish pork burger with alioli and brava sauce; Pollo Frito: fried chicken breast with lettuce, Piparra peppers, alioli, and brava sauce; Escalivada: roasted eggplant, red peppers, sweet onions, spinach, and mojo rojo; Pepito de Ibérico: seared Ibérico pork and Serrano ham with roasted green peppers, caramelized onions, and alioli; Spanish Grilled Cheese: Manchego, Murcia, Valdeón, Membrillo, and fresh goat cheese; Fútbol Club Barcelona: thinly sliced chicken, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and shallot mayonnaise; Jamón Serrano y queso Manchego: Serrano ham, Manchego, and olive oil; and Pepito de ternera: Seared beef tenderloin, caramelized onion, piquillo pepper confit, and blue cheese.  Prices range from $8 to $14 each (Ibérico and specialty sandwiches can range to $20).

Pepe will offer Patatas Bravas, fried potato chips, inspired by the popular dish served throughout Spain, along with a variety of his signature (non-alcoholic) cocktails such as Sangria, and Pepe Tonic priced from $3 to $4 each.  Seasonal soups such as Chicken Noodle will also be available, served with warm Ficelle bread, priced at $8.  For dessert, Pepe will serve a Chocolate and Hazelnut Ice Cream Flauta, a chocolate cookie sandwich with hazelnut ice cream, priced at $5.  With a menu of flavorful Spanish-themed simple lunch food, Pepe is rolling out to be a serious contender among D.C. food trucks.
