New York Food Trucks For Happy Eating
Food trucks have become a staple of New York. You can't walk more than two blocks without seeing someone offering food in a little white container. Dutch settlers first introduced pushcart food in 1691. The food might not have been as tasty back then, but it was an easy way to grab a quick bite during your lunch break.
The food has changed, but the concept remains the same. New Yorkers are busy people and no one has time to sit down in a restaurant and eat lunch. New York food trucks have, and always will, cater to the lunch crowd. Instead of settling for a hotdog or chicken and rice, you can enjoy gourmet meals -everything from waffles to dumplings to tacos. And, it is all high quality food; hence the long lines wrapped around the block. There are plenty of great trucks to try, but let us discuss some trucks you cannot pass up.
Everyone knows breakfast can be eaten any time of day. If you understand how amazing waffles are, check out Waffles & Dinges. Get it? The "dinges," include dulce de leche, Belgian chocolate fudge, walnuts, bananas, whipped cream, etc. And, do not forget the scoop of vanilla ice cream! What kind of waffle would it be? Besides the traditional sweet waffles, there is a savory waffle, but it is only for the adventurous. It has pulled BBQ pork and coleslaw slathered on top. Try it before you judge!
Prefer BBQ without the waffle? Then head over to Korilla BBQ, a food truck serving "classic Korean recipes in contemporary forms." Choose a filling, such as chicken thighs, pulled pork, rib-eye, or tofu and then stick it in a burrito, tacos, or chosun bowl. Then of course you can add on some kimchi, salsa, cheese, hot sauce, and other fixings.
Not in the mood for spicy kimchi? Perhaps a traditional Greek food truck would better fill your tummy. Souvlaki GR food truck is so incredibly delicious that they now have a restaurant on the Lower East Side. Besides the customary pita souvlaki, you can also dine on a Greek burger, fries, salads, and choco-freta - a Greek chocolate wafer bar. Sometimes the simple food is simply the best!
The choices don't stop there, there is Bistro Truck serving Mediterranean cuisine, Big D's Grub Truck dishing out tacos and grinder sandwiches, Richshaw Dumpling Truck steaming dumplings (what else?), and so many more. NYC food trucks have become quite the phenomenon. When your stomach is grumbling, stop by one of these amazing trucks for some grub.
