NYC Food Truck Lunch: The Metroarepa From MetroarepasInside the arepa are shredded meats, with the Metroarepa including 3 types of shredded meat - beef, chicken and pork. Other arepas have only one type of meat, but why not get the dish with all three? You only live once!
NYC Food Truck Lunch: Japanese Tacos From Yaki TacoOf the main courses, our favorite was the curry beef. It was tender and appeared to have been cooked slowly over a long period of time.
NYC Food Truck Lunch: Curry Chicken From Mysttik MasaalaOur lunch was topped with red onion, fresh cilantro, and there was a huge bay leaf right on top. Too bad you can't smell this review!
NYC Food Truck Lunch: Torta Cubana From Tacos Mi MexicoYou might ask what this sandwich has in common with a traditional Cuban sandwich. The answer is "not much." Roast pork was about the extent of it, but there were other redeeming qualities.
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: Gourmet Empanadas From The Empanada SonataThe Piggy Mac had bbq pork and macaroni & cheese inside the empanada. Not a drop of grease came out of this empanada, but it was strange having mac & cheese inside an empanada. Somehow, it worked.
NYC Food Truck Lunch: Shrimp & Grits From Harlem Seafood SoulWe smelled the cart a few steps before we saw the cart, and it was wonderful.
NYC Food Truck Lunch: Cheesesteak From Butcher's ChoiceThe bread was just right. This could have been a messy cheesesteak, but even though the bread was soft, there was enough sturdiness to keep it from falling apart.
