Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City
Every once in a while a food purveyor comes along that I get so excited about that I end up dedicated multiple posts on this blog to them. It happened with Mile End a few years ago, it happens all the time with Chikalicious Dessert Bar, and it’s about to happen with Harry & Ida’s Meat and Supply Co.
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.
The greatest day in mobile food vending is back. On September 12, the Vendy Awards will take place on Governor’s Island honoring the greatest in New York’s food vending community. Tickets are still available for purchase here. For the next few weeks, I’ll be documenting all of the nominees in three categories.
Rookie of the Year: Old Traditional Polish Cuisine
There’s dozens of taco trucks, plenty of pizza vehicles, and a myriad of lobster roll wagons in this city. But there’s only one truck selling the hearty, traditional food from Poland. Pierogies and kielbasa make for excellent street food and Old Traditional Polish Cuisine is cooking them up with authentic flavors and straight from the heart.
Dessert of the Year: Doughnuttery
Evan Feldman had a brilliant new idea about doughnuts. At Doughnuttery in Chelsea Market or at Broadway Bites, he fries all his mini-doughnuts to order (on an invenive machine) and then shakes them up with uniquely flavored sugars infused with surprising ingredients like coffee, bacon, or purple potato chips. This makes for a magical, fresh, and addicting take on the usually ordinary fried dough.Doughnuttery
