Perry, the voice behind New York Street Food, brings you his latest review on New York City food trucks and carts.
The Eggs Travaganza cart started out by serving only breakfast on the NE corner of 52nd St & Park Ave. I don’t usually eat breakfast, but they started serving lunch about two years, and it turned out to be a good place to get an egg dish for lunch or fresh tacos.
In fact, they were a Vendy Award Finalist last year, and I also saw them recently on a Food(o)graphy episode about breakfasts.

I enjoy eggs for lunch or dinner every once in a while, and this was no exception. The Special Mexican Wrap is two fried eggs, chorizo, home fried potatoes, onions, pepper and cheese for $5. Arturo asked if I wanted hot sauce too. Of course!
When I opened up the container, it smelled like a wonderful brunch – and it looked just as good, with a little American cheese oozing out of the wrap. The eggs and potatoes were delicious, there was a lot of chorizo, and the hot sauce took it to another level.

This was a great lunch if you’re in the mood for eggs and potatoes, and the whole wheat wrap made it easy to eat, too.
Arturo’s father is a butcher, and he makes the chorizo by hand for the cart, while Arturo’s sister works with him at the cart every day.

The Eggs Travaganza cart has a bunch of other offering for lunch, including tacos ($2 each), burritos ($5) and American fare like tuna fish and grilled cheese sandwiches – but I’m partial to the Mexican wrap and the Mexican grilled cheese, made with chorizo and cheese.
You can’t go wrong with either dish.
The Eggs Travaganza cart is on the NE corner of 52nd St & Park Ave. They tweet once or twice a day, but more to mention their specials than to broadcast a location.
