Ok, I need to stop eating at all these food trucks. I haven't had a vegetable in weeks. I think I am slowly congealing from the inside out. But no! I must continue on! There are trucks out there serving food, and it is my mission to purchase and consume that food! Only 6 left to go.....
17) Yvonne Yvonne
This one took me over to the Upper East Side, or, as I like to call it, Bizarro New York. I spend all my time on the Upper West Side, so going over there was very disconcerting. The streets all had the same names, the buildings looked similar, but it was all different! Everything was just a little off. I'm pretty sure it's an alternate universe. Luckily, it was very easy to find Yvonne Yvonne, where I had some curried goat. It was spicy, but not as spicy as the red beans and rice I also got. Thank goodness I also got the mac and cheese, or my mouth would have burned off.
In other news, most of the goat that I got seemed to be goat bones. Seriously like 60% of that stuff you see there is bones and other assorted non-edible goat pieces. But the goat I did get was very good, and once I had finished it, I was off to find a dessert truck!
18) The Treats Truck
My governing food truck article mentioned cookies and the mexican chocolate brownies, which I got, and I also got an ice cream cone cupcake, because it looked delicious. Where to start? The first thing I tried was the cupcake, although it was probably (trying not to exaggerate here) 80% frosting. Now, I love frosting. Probably more than the next guy, but I thought I was going to die. The whole cone was filled to the top with frosting, and you see what looks like a little ball shape on the top there? That is the ball of cupcake. Drenched in frosting. It's all frosting. Did I mention the frosting? Anyway, I couldn't finish it all, and after that, I couldn't eat the other treats, so I took them home.
I had the cookie next. OMFG! That is a delicious cookie. Definitely the best thing I had from them, and I wish I had gotten about two dozen of them, although then I could not wear my skinny jeans anymore. Finally, I tried the mexican chocolate brownie. Basically, it is a brownie with of a bunch of weird spices in it. It wasn't really my thing, but if you are one of those people who like those spicy chocolate bars, or salted chocolate things, this would be the brownie for you. Though I didn't finish it, I could tell it was a quality product.
19) El Rey Del Taco
This was my first non-Manhattan truck! I was hanging out with my friend Claire, and accidentally ran into this truck on our way home late at night. What luck! I had just eaten Ethiopian food and a chocolate milkshake, but somehow I was still hungry for a sincronizada. Don't know what that is? Basically, it's two giant tortillas, ham, cheese, lettuce, tomato, more cheese, spice, and more cheese, all cooked up to delicious perfection. If you want the sour cream or guac (which I never do) that is available as well. Man, it was awesome. Claire had some, and thought it was just ok, but she doesn't like tomatoes, and you really can't trust people that don't like tomatoes. Trust me. Go eat this.
So I have six trucks left. I think I'm going to do it! And then you will not have to read about all the things I've eaten anymore! It's a win-win! See you on the streets!
