Free Stuff: Lunch From Dos Equis Mobile Academy Food Truck And Duck N Roll

The only thing more exciting than a great food truck is a great food truck that's giving away all their food for free. It's like a dream you don't have to wake up from. The Dos Equis Mobile Academy ("a culinary experience featuring adventurous cuisines from a variety of regions and cultures for fans that are craving something new, or are just bored from eating endless variations of the chicken sandwich") is sponsoring nine days worth of free lunches all over the city - all you have to do is go to their truck.
They have teamed up with Amy Le's Duck n Roll to showcase some interesting, challenging dishes that we'd normally line up to pay for. Le is serving three dishes: a jellyfish salad with chilled pickled cucumbers, braised sea cucumber (not a vegetable) with oyster sauce and miso-marinated beef tongue served in steam buns. And it's all free.
The truck has been roaming the city since Tuesday. Today, they will be parked at 600 W. Chicago from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Except for Monday, they'll be cruising for a week. They are even heading down to Hyde Park!
