With D.C. Slices opening its doors (window?) last week, District street food lovers now have some real choices. Here are five trucks roaming the downtown area that should give you plenty of reasons to get out of the office for lunch this spring:

Fojol Bros.

The Fojol Bros. of Merlindia have been peddling Indian street food with a healthy side of kitsch since early last year. The truck is on a short hiatus, but when it returns, look for chicken masala, curry, lentils and other favorites.

When to look for it and how to find it: The truck is still in the garage, but look to http://www.fojol.com and http://twitter.com/fojolbros for information about when it'll be back and where.

What you'll pay: $2, $6 or $9 for a plate, depending on portion size.

Curbside Cupcake

Curbside brings a rotating menu of cupcakes to a number of daily locations. An online calendar announces the flavors available on any given day, and the truck will even make deliveries for orders of two dozen cupcakes or more.

When to look for it: On weekdays the truck hits the streets a little before lunch and stays out while stocks last, usually until about 5 p.m.

How to find it: Use the truck tracker at http://www.curbsidecupcakes.com, or follow it at http://twitter.com/CurbsideCupcake.

What you'll pay: Individual cupcakes are $3, a half-dozen are $15 and a dozen are $27.
