Best street-food

I am in NY for 3 days and want to try the new cool/upscale street food experience. What are the newest (or most classic) street food vendors ? Which ones I should not miss ? I will eat pretty much any type of food.

      Hallo Berlin, Kwick Meal, Halal Guys, check out for more but those are my top three.

    2. Check out the Vendy awards- given each year to the best strret food vendors in New York. Just goggle Vendy awards.

          Thanks for the links, although I had seen that NYMag from 2007.
          Also, thanks for the info. I was wondering what had happened to Schnitzel and Things. I was on my way there when I saw the tweet about the "mishap"
          Instead, tried the Biryani Cart for late lunch (46 st 6 ave). Fantastic kati rolls.
          Tomorrow, where should I have breakfast ?

          Biryani Cart
          W 46th St and 6th Ave, New York, NY 10036
