College Freshman Rolls Out Kosher Food Truck in D.C.

A 19-year-old George Washington University freshman with zero culinary experience is the brains behind Brooklyn Sandwich Company, a new Glatt kosher food truck in DC. A generous donor and a crowdfunding campaign helped get Carly Meisel’s new business off – or on – the ground.

There’s a pastrami sandwich, beef brisket and cholent. But the pastrami’s served on a pretzel bun, the brisket is cooked sous vide and pulled and the cholent is made from portobello mushrooms, sunchokes and barley. Matzo-ball soup (“Made with TLC, just like your bubbie’s”), knishes and coleslaw round out the menu, The Times of Israel reports.
