I just waited 1/2 hour for bratwurst and weisswurst at the wurst cart on 54th and 5th. I don't know if I'd wait that long again, but the food was great!!!
What are some other highly reccomended street vendors????
The lovely church of Our Lady of Guadalupe on 14th between 8th and 9th, features a couple of carts oudside on Sunday mornings. They serve tamales and frijoles and some odd looking things. I've tried them all over the last six months, and they're all good, particularly when the wind is whistling down off the river.
Very guilt-inducing (how Catholic is that?!), to sneak a snack en route to brunch in Pastis!
The Cheesesteak cart on Broadway and 3rd outside Tower Records makes a decent (if non-authentic) cheesesteak. They also, oddly, have good gyros.
This is out of the normal midtown-daytime street food, but one evening a few weeks ago I was walking on Bowery and 3rd or 4th street and came across a vendor (Michael) who was unique. He makes wraps with multiple fresh vegetables, spices, chicken ( i think he had tofu and something else too), beans, rice. Everything was really fresh and well seasoned - a wrap which seemed to weigh 2 pounds was $5 or $6. He gets there around 6 pm 6 nights a week.
