NYC Food Truck Lunch: Panko Fish Rice Bowl From Yaki Taco
NYC Food Truck Lunch: Salami Sandwich From Deli & DogzIf you aren't a big salami fan, there are plenty of other options. Deli & Dogz is more well-known for its pastrami anyway, even calling itself The Pastrami Truck.
NYC Food Truck Lunch: Chinese Schnitzel From SchnitziThe schnitzel itself was breaded and deep-fried, with sesame seeds mixed into the breading. The chicken was still nice and juicy, and there was plenty of it in the sandwich.
NYC Food Truck Lunch: Shrimp Tempura Rice Bowl From Domo TacoThe worst thing is when the breading on tempura shrimp is soft and soggy. Luckily, that was not the case. The tempura shrimp was still crunchy, even with sauce covering most of the shrimp.
NYC Food Truck Lunch: Grilled Steak Salad Bowl From MeatossOne thing that sets Meatoss apart is their use of a professional Brazilian churrasco grill to cook the meats. The food is grilled on skewers surrounded by heat, which makes the cooking more uniform, and keeps more of the juices (and flavor) inside the meat.
NYC Food Truck Lunch: BBQ Chicken From Veronica's KitchenThe bbq sauce here was thick and somewhat sweet, just how we like it. We're not big fans of vinegary bbq sauces. We also asked for homemade hot sauce on the side. It really brought the heat, so use the hot sauce judiciously.
NYC Food Truck Lunch: Caramelized Pork Rice Bowl From Coney ShackOne of the perks of getting the last available rice bowl is we got the crispy rice from the bottom of the pot. It's always enjoyable eating the crispy rice from the bottom of the pot.
NYC Food Truck Lunch: Kofta Kebab From Comme Ci Comme CaComme Ci Comme Ca are a regular part of our lunch diet, and should be part of yours, too. The food is always fresh, the meats are cooked over flames, not grilled, and they serve couscous.

NYC Food Truck Lunch: Jerk Chicken From TMT Caribbean DelightsWarning: Don't get the hot sauce unless you really like heat. There's a little bit of heat on the jerk chicken itself. You don't really need to add more, unless of course that's your preference.
NYC Food Truck Lunch: Kati Rolls From Kwik GourmetKati rolls are made with grilled chapati bread, a slightly chewy Indian flatbread. It's strong and flexible enough to hold everything inside without breaking, but is not too thick.
