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

A few months ago when we visited the World’s Best Sandwich truck (20th St between Broadway & Park Ave), I was almost tempted at the last minute by the Spanish Sub, but went with my original choice, chicken salad on a roll.  It was decent, but I should have listened to my heart.

This time, the Daily Special was a Spanish Sub for $6 , so it was no contest what to order.

The Spanish Sub is chicken cutlet, mozzarella cheese, avocado, jalapeno, tomato and oil & vinegar.

There was a nice sized chicken cutlet breaded with panko bread crumbs, which gave the cutlet some crunchiness and texture.

I’m not sure who came up with the idea of adding jalapenos and avocado to a chicken cutlet sandwich, but they deserve an award.  The jalapenos gave the chicken cutlet some bite, and the avocado added a creamy vegetable flavor to the mix.

This was almost like having 2 different sandwiches because some bites had chicken, jalapeno and avocado and some bites had chicken, lettuce, tomato and oil & vinegar – kind of a half-Spanish/half-Italian sub.

There was also a slice of mozzarella cheese that I saw, but didn’t really taste.  Two slices of cheese would have been better or something a little stronger, such as provolone.

The World’s Best Sandwich Truck doesn’t tweet or have a website, but they are on 20th St between Broadway and Park Ave weekdays for breakfast and lunch. As you can tell, we highly recommend the Spanish Sub.
