From last Thursday to this Wednesday we opened our wallets, kept our eye on Twitter and tracked down some of the finest mobile feasts our city as to offer. Read on for the full recap…
THURSDAY: THE LOT ON TAP
Tom Colicchio opened this gem of a lot just beneath the beautiful High Line. Local libations and meals on wheels makes for a great place to meet and eat.
Classic creations with some interesting add-ins (pulled pork, various sauces). Worth a visit if you happen to be near by anyhow but I don’t know if we’d really seek it out… Their tots were pretty killer though.
FRIDAY: …. THE LOT ON TAP, PART DEUX
Falafel Sandwich (green falafel + hummus + israeli salad + pickled cabbage + tahini sauce + pickles + s’rug + amba sauce) Amy, a known falafel-a-phobe flipped over the combo. Truly tasty.
Fries with Saffron Aioli – need we say more? AND OK I get it. I need a manicure.
Note the sign in their ordering window. This is the sort of business model we can get behind…
SATURDAY: PARKED! @ SOUTH STREET SEAPORT
This past Saturday was a great day – Hillary’s birthday! It just so happened that Saturday was also Parked! a food truck rally down in the South Street Seaport. Thirty trucks participated, we tried three (hey, we’re only human!).
WEDNESDAY: BIG GAY ICE CREAM TRUCK!
The famed Big Gay Ice Cream truck took a roadtrip up the coast this past weekend so I hope you didn’t mind waiting for this week’s post. We simply had to hold out until we got us some of that goodness. Usually parked around Union Square we waited in line for a good 40 minutes. Was it worth it you ask?…take a look at these photos and tell us what you think.
Salty Pimp -vanilla soft serve, dulce de leche, sea salt, all inside chocolate dip – sinful.
Whether it’s a fad or these trucks are only just the beginning of the mobile meal movement, we know one thing – they sure are tasty…and fun.
