Truck Lunch

Perry, the voice behind New York Street Food, brings you his latest review on New York City food trucks.

We first ran across A-Pou’s Taste in mid-2010, when they were nominated for a Vendy Award in the Rookie of the Year category.  Their cart is usually in the East Village around Astor Place, and they fell off our radar for a while, as they don’t tweet or have a website.

They have 4 different types of dumplings (pork, beef, chicken and veggie) and a few other dishes.  You can see the dumpling menu here.

We got a medium-sized order of pork pot stickers, which is 10 for $6.

These Taiwanese pot stickers are not round or half-moon shaped, but are long and thin.  They appeared to be steamed in advance, then fried when you order.

The filling was ground pork, water chestnuts and chives, and a thin soy & sesame sauce was squirted on the pot stickers after they were put in the container.

There were also 2 small bags included with the order, hot sauce and more of the soy & sesame sauce.

The pot stickers had some crispiness on the skins where they were fried.  The meat filling had a nice taste, and a little crunch from the water chestnuts.

I can’t say these were the best pot stickers I’ve ever had, but they were good.  And getting 10 for $6 is an excellent value.

In addition to pot stickers, they have lo mein, which is called Chinese spaghetti, and a couple of soups.  You can also see their full menu here.

A-Pou’s Taste is found on Twitter, but it doesn’t seem to have been used in a couple of years.  We understand the cart is usually by Astor Place & Lafayette St.
