Food, food and more street food. The roving food trucks are all the rage in New York, from cupcakes to korean tacos. And everything in between. This weekend I spent a day at the new Eventi hotel for Carts in the Parc, where the local food trucks gathered in one spot for the NY Wine & Food Festival. Let me tell you, this event make the tasting much much easier. The trucks were stationary and centrally located!
And with a group of 4, you can taste quite a bit...
Schnitzel and lamb (2 ways) care of Schnitzel and Things, NYC Cravings and the Bistro Truck. On the right is the Korean Taco from Krave in Jersey City. I didn't get a picture of the Biryani, but it was great (and the food winner).
Such a pretty cupcake! From Sweet Street Desserts:
One of our foursome, with the host Andrew Zimmerman (of Bizarre Foods on Food Network):
Gail Simmons...honestly, she looked so much tinier in real life. Which then prompts the question "what would I look like on TV then?" While not a favorite of everyone in my house, I like Gail.
The dessert winner. This is the Salty Pimp from the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck. Dulce de Leche squirted in the ice cream, a little sprinkle of salt, and then chocolate dipped. And that's the big gay owner in the truck.
Had to have at least one picture of a truck!
A fun day and beautiful weather. We were even interviewed for Country Living online so will have to look for that clip!
