Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City
The guys at Cout Street Grocers have a way with turkey. The usually bland and dry meat is always treated with respect at the three locations.
Their most out-of-the-way outpost is near the dock in the semi-secluded neighborhood of Red Hook not far from their original Carroll Gardens location. Here, they focus on heroes offered to the neighborhood at affordable prices and with chef-driven ingredients and preparations.
Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures. NYC Food Cart Tour is my exploration of the hard-working vendors feeding NYC’s population every day.
While most halal carts in this city are owned by Egyptian, Pakistani, or Bangledeshi immigrants, Halal Gyro Express stands out from the crowd with their Afghan flavors. The owner Ali has almost 10 years experience working on a food cart and draws long lines at lunchtime because of their extraordinary lamb chops and chicken tikka.
