Here in Astoria, the King (of Falafel) sits on his throne at 30th Street and Broadway. Â And by God, does this man deserve his throne. Â After all, he’s the 2010 Winner of the Vendy Awards, so you know that means he’s a top food truck.
The King of Falafel and Shawarma is my go-to [...]
Congratulations, Gorilla Cheese NYC. Â You win the most disappointing meal I’ve had in 2011.
Gorilla Cheese is a new grilled cheese truck that launched a few weeks back. Â When it parked outside my office the other day, I quickly saved the lunch I brought in for the next day, and headed to the truck [...]
After a night at Brooklyn Bowl, I smelled tacos on the walk back to the L, and immediately informed my friend Tim that if we found a taco truck, we had to stop. Â And then on the corner of North 7th and Bedford Ave, right near the Salvation Army, was Tacos Morelos.

Last week, I was in a quick rush for lunch and decided to check out a new street cart across the street from my office. Â I was in the mood for falafel and luckily, the guy on the street had a great neon green poster advertising my dish for $3.75. Â I was sold.

In my opinion, soup is an enigma. Is it a meal, or simply an appetizer? If it has chicken, beef or other hearty components, do you need less of it to fill you up? Why is it that a 12 cent pack of ramen is just as [...]
Months ago, I wrote about street cart dining and if they were classy or trashy. Â Unfortunately, the street cart I was in love with on the SW corner of 31st and Park has since disappeared. Â We’re not sure if it’s the economy or weather that scared my falafel man away, but he certainly has [...]
Since starting my job in NYC, I’ve been tempted with the smell of Rafiqui’s Street Cart.Â Even the smell of gyros at 8:55 a.m. could send my stomach into an instant growl.Â However, for one reason or another, when grabbing a bite to eat I found myself heading over to an establishment that had [...]
