street food

Any new rec's for street food? Pretty much game for any cuisine. Tried and loved the Halal guys and am a sucker for falafal. Will be in town next weekend.

    Haven't been yet, but the "rookie of the year" in this year's Vendy Awards is a truck called Souvlaki GR.

      LA hound visiting for a week in a few months. Anyone got some recs for some street food? Preferably things I CAN'T get in LA? (ie tacos)

        A few things I might recommend:
        Kwik Meal - a Bengaladeshi street cart on 46th and 6th, they do amazing things with lamb and chicken.
        The Jamaican Dutchy cart - on 50th and 7th- they have a daily rotating special that is usually amazing.
        Dessert Truck - moves around, check twitter- just a bunch of solid, well crafted desserts.

          I like the doubles and other Trini food from the Trini Paki Boys cart. I also like Wafels & Dinges.

            Might be better off starting a new thread since your request is slightly different than the OP's....

            Taim makes my favorite falafel. They have a truck: Taim Mobile and they Twitter their location every day. Their sabich sandwich is another favorite.
