One of the best ways to go food tripping in New York is to try our the different food trucks!
Here are my top 4 food trucks in New York:
The Halal Guys
As my good friend said, you cannot say you’ve been to New York until you’ve tried the Halal Guys and this for me is the best! You can find them in Midtown New York near MoMa (West 53rd and 6th Avenue) from 10:00 AM – 3:00 AM. The line is always long so I suggest you go around 11:30 AM or 2:00PM to beat those who are taking their lunch break. However, it is worth the wait and the service is pretty quick. They can serve about 2 people in less than one minute.
Price per meal is less than $10 and with that big of a serving, you won’t even have to eat dinner anymore :) I personally love the chicken with gyro and rice but my sister loved the combination of chicken and lamb.
This is also the perfect meal after happy hour or a long night at the club. Last 4th of July, my friends and I had some $5 margaritas while watching a football match. After a couple of drinks we decided to see if the truck was open and it was. The rain was pouring badly so the hot sauce was such a welcome addition to the meal. One of my best moments in NY :)
The Morris Truck: Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
If you’re craving for the comforting grilled cheese sandwich then The Morris Truck is your best bet! The staff is incredibly friendly too!
On Mondays, you can find them at West 52nd and 6th Avenue (near the Halal Guys) and on Thursdays they’re located at 51st between Park and Madison.
When the sign is on, they’re cooking! I remember seeing the truck around 2:30PM and they already ran out of stocks!
The price varies depending on the kind of sandwich you want. I tried their Delicate Cheese – Truffle Butter, Truffle Cheese & Caramelized Shallots ($10.00) and their homemade Blueberry Soda. You can really taste the truffle but I think they forgot to put in the shallots. Overall – craving satisfied!
I was looking for lunch while spending a leisurely afternoon at the Central Park. I didn’t want to settle for the hotdog carts so I was very happy to stumble upon Rouge Tomate. They used to be located at 64th & 5th Upper East Side New York but they recently posted that they’ll be transferring to a new location.
Unfortunately and probably due to extreme hunger, I forgot to take a photo of my Portobello Mushroom Burger but it is a MUST TRY! I am always hesitant to try vegetarian burgers but this was surprisingly really good! The patty was tender and juicy and it didn’t feel like I was eating mushrooms. If healthy food always came this way, I’d be so happy!
From a distance, you can already smell the sweet, inviting scent of the wafels. It will surely wake up your senses and brighten your mood. It’s like seeing a rainbow on a gloomy day.
You can find them at the City Hall Park every Saturday and Sunday 10:00 AM – 8:00 PM.
After surviving half of my Digital Analytics class, I decided to indulge on the de Bom as my lunch. It is wafel drizzled with chocolate and hazelnut syrup and then topped with a scoop of classic vanilla ice cream. Yes, in my world #dessertcomesfirst. ;) And the best thing about this moment was that I got to indulge it while looking at this amazing view of the City Hall Park. There is something so refreshing about eating lunch outdoors.
