Last night PhoWheels and Astro Doughnuts debuted a collaboration they've been working on for quite some time: the Astro Doughnut Banh Mi. It's got PhoWheels banh mi fillings— five-spice maple-glazed pork belly, soy garlic chicken, or mushroom-onion tofu, plus pickled radish and carrots, cilantro, cucumbers, and truffle aioli— inside a savory Astro doughnut made with bacon, cheddar, and chives.
The sandwich is available for $8 at PhoWheels through the end of September. Follow the food truck on Twitter and Facebook for details; today, find the team on H Street between 21st and 22nd streets from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and in Clarendon from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
