Mexicue’s Thanksgiving Sandwich was really delicious – a spicy Thanksgiving meal on a bun. Initially, we were wary of a sandwich with mashed potatoes and stuffing on a roll (among other things), but it worked out great.
The salads at Potato House are pre-made, but looked and tasted fresh. They had not been sitting around for a while.
Most food carts are pretty basic in design, but the Mtblls Cart is designed to look like a subway car. Even the menu has a subway motif. Heros are called The Local and sliders are called The Express.
Straddling the worlds of both sweet and savory, chicken and waffles deliver that flavor combination like nothing else can. Check out these restaurants from Harlem down to Brooklyn, serving their own versions of this Southern staple.
What really caught our attention was the Plantini, which ranges in price from $8-$10, depending upon whether you get a chicken, burger or steak plantini. So what exactly is a plantini?
One of the newer food trucks to venture into midtown is Mr. Nice Guy. They have been in business about 6 months, but started out serving in Upper Manhattan & The Bronx.
Katz & Dogs opened recently with both a food truck and a food cart, and on the side of the cart it says “The Pastrami Cart.” Who are we to turn down one of our favorite foods, a pastrami sandwich for $10?
We have another new food truck for you this week, and it’s fairly unique. Shanghai Sogo just hit the NYC streets this week, and they serve “Asian tapas.”
This week’s new food truck is called Bo Dillaz. The truck’s name doesn’t offer any clues as to what is on the menu — until you actually see the menu, and discover they serve quesadillas.
Umami Burger is a West Coast favorite — but it now has fans lining up in the city’s West Village. The restaurant recently opened here in the city. TV 10-55’s Alex Denis met with Adam Fleischman, Umami Burger’s CEO and Founder.
A couple of weeks ago, a new food truck debuted at the AfroPunk Festival in Brooklyn called the Green Radish. We haven’t been able to catch up to it until recently, but finally got there.
The El Paso Truck hit the street recently, and we were able to stop by for a couple of tacos. For our first visit, we had to try the octopus taco for $4. To round things out, we went for a chorizo taco for $3 too.
The 5-spice fries smelled so good, we attacked them first. A small order costs $3.50 and a large order is $5.50. Our regular readers know how much we like 5-spice powder, and to put it on fries was an interesting idea.
Another week, another new food truck! To be fair, Moo Shu Grill is not a brand new truck, but has arisen like a phoenix from the ashes of the Fishing Shrimp Truck.
Through our Mobile Munchies Twitter feed, we’ve been hearing good things about the Egg Tosti from The Steel Cart. Although we usually have only a bagel for breakfast, we do enjoy The Steel Cart’s soups and sandwiches for lunch. Once in a while it’s fun to get breakfast for lunch, too.
