Pepe Food Truck Is Back

José Andrés' food truck Pepe hits the streets again today after its winter hiatus. Its first stop? Chinatown, in front of the Portrait Gallery.

The truck has some new menu items, including a sandwich with blood sausage, pickled onions, spinach, fig, and herbed cream cheese. You’ll also find some new seasonal soups and salads like the Ensalada Campera with conserved tuna, fingerling potatoes, green beans, tomatoes, and hard boiled eggs, as well as a "Moorish stew" of chickpeas and spinach.

Missing for now: Pepe’s famous $20 Iberico ham sandwich. But a rep for the food truck says it will return as a special every now and then. Other sandwiches on the menu range from $10 to $13.

Check out the full menu below.
