It's a cold day and there's nothing like a nice bowl of pho. The beef & meatball pho from Healthy Fool was fantastic, with a complex and fragrant broth, lots of nice vegetables, and tender, delicious round steak and meatballs. Outstanding effort by the Fools!

The DC and NoVAs food truck scene has a lot of delicious, but rather unhealthy, options to choose from for lunch. So, Healthy Fool is a nice addition to the mix serving up Vietnamese inspired food at reasonable prices.

Today was my first visit and I was torn between the spicy Bún bò Hu soup or the Grilled Chicken Platter. I decided to try the latter since the soup is a recent addition to the menu (though it did look great). You have a choice of rice, rice noodles, or butter noodles with the platters and they come with a grilled vegetable mix (broccoli, cabbage, spinach, carrots), then your choice of soy sauce or lime garlic sauce.

The man and the women running the truck today were super friendly and all smiles. My order came up quickly and was a large portion for my $9.90 total charge. I was hoping to get a bottle of water with my meal but was informed they only serve iced coffee and strawberry lemonade. Isn't water the "healthy" choice?

The dish is served over noodles, topped with the grilled vegetables, and then finished with the sliced, lightly seasoned, chicken breast with our choice of sauce on the side to do with as you wish. Overall, I would have rated this truck a solid four stars, except for a significant detractor - my food was cold.

The rice noodles were served ice cold on the bottom, with the warm veg on top, the chicken was barely lukewarm (though I did see it go on the grill). The heat problem was then only compounded by the cold lime garlic sauce. The rice noodles would have benefited for a quick dip in boiling water and the chicken a few more minutes on the grill to ensure that the whole dish was hot.

Final verdict - good food and a fairly healthy choice. I will return to try the Pho and/or the Bún bò Hu in the future and will update my review accordingly.


They were very friendly, the food was fresh. Rapid turn around. And the lemonade was the BEST! I will definitely eat here again...

Healthy Fool Summer Roll is a great, cheap, healthy lunch. LOVE IT! Shrimp, vermicelli, mint, rice noodle, and a tasty peanut sauce. One of my favorite food truck items.

Grilled shrimp though... not so much. Healthy Fool, you need to change this one up! First, I was unhappy to find out, when I got back to my desk, that I had to clean my own shrimp! Then, realized I didn't have enough napkins to get all the shrimp bits off my fingers! Once all the shrimp was cleaned, I tried it out. Tasty! Light! (Lime Garlic sauce) Nice! Next, tried the rice noodles. They were cold. Unexpected with a hot meal. Then the veg, which were (I thought) supposed to be steamed. Not so much. More like raw. So for $11 I had shrimp that was not ready to be eaten, noodles that were cold and chopped up salad fixins. Add onto that a trashcan now filled with shrimp body parts filling the room with a nice fishy smell and fingers that I can't type with during lunch (which really, limits the point of getting to-go food from a truck) and a negative supply of napkins... And I have to say I wouldn't do it again. Please dress your shrimp! Please heat up your food! The flavor was very nice but the rest was a bust and a total waste of $11. Bummer.


I liked it. Decent sized portions of protein, rice and freshly sauteed vegetables. Employees were friendly which is always a plus. Slightly pricey

The food was fantastic and reasonably priced relative to the other trucks (I basically got two meals thus the price listed). Rolls were fresh and sauce was very good. The kabob was first rate truck fare. No complaints at all.

They need to come back to Courthouse more often.
