Monster Food Trucks
I go great lengths for The Cinnamon Snail. Over the Brooklyn Bridge, indiscriminately walking through tourist's photographs. For a very special Parked! Food Truck Festival at South Street Seaport. Considering they are usually parked in New Jersey (see last fall), this was a very urgent trip. My sandwich did not disappoint.
The Al Pastor Seitan sandwich: with grilled pineapple, beer battered jalapeno, greens & chipotle mayo. Also, the wonderfully named Peruvian Jungle Drop (maca, lacuma, coconut, & cacao! )
Cinnamon Snail's Mexican Hot Chocolate Twist: everything a donut should be. Washed down with a Cantaloupe Creamsicle from The Green Pirate Juice Truck.
The next day was Prospect Park's Food Truck Rally. It's always nice to see the trucks that make their appearance on Hudson Street (lunch spot) all round up together. I had Taim-all vegetarian crowd pleasing falafel.
The day after that, Crisp on Wheels vegetarian at Hudson street. I think they might have the perfect falafel: crisp, not greasy, light, and flavorful. This is the Crisp Africa with peanut sauce, habanero harissa, and really nice sweet potato crisps.
