NYC Food Truck Lunch: Assorted Tacos From Los ViajerosContinuing the Vendy Award theme of the past few weeks' reviews, this week we went to Los Viajeros, who were one of the finalists in the Rookie of the Year category.
NYC Food Truck Lunch: Chicken Thigh Platter From MeatossThe name Meatoss doesn't exactly fall off the tongue, but we care more about the food than the name of the food truck.
NYC Food Truck Lunch: Cumin Lamb Dry Noodle From Traditional Chinese CuisineThe menu is extensive, with both authentic Chinese food and Americanized Chinese food (i.e. General Tso's chicken). Many of the patrons we saw were Chinese students from NYU, which was a good sign.
NYC Food Truck Lunch: Roast Pork Cachapa From Cachapas On WheelsFor the uninitiated, a cachapa is a sandwich served on sweet corn pancakes, like thin corn fritters. You can also have your sandwich served on fried plantains (patacon), in an arepa (cornmeal patty), as a burrito, or on a hero.
NYC Food Truck Lunch: Red Curry Chicken From Luckyim ThaiThe dish was quite aromatic, and had plenty of sliced white meat chicken, bamboo shoots, cabbage, red and green bell peppers and fresh basil.

NYC Food Truck Lunch: Meat Lovers Sandwich From Neapolitan ExpressPizza dough worked well as hero bread. It was on the thin side, but that just added some crispiness to the bread. It was certainly strong enough to hold the fillings without falling apart.
NYC Food Truck Lunch: Garlic Sausage Jian Bing From The Flying PigFor the past few months, we've been hearing about a food truck that serves jian bing, but tracking it down has been elusive. We were not familiar with jian bing, but the best way to describe it is as a stuffed savory Chinese crepe.
