About New York Food Trucks
Street food is nothing new in New York city. With thousands of hot dog carts, Mediterranean plate lunches and Mister Frostee ice cream trucks, New Yorkers have been accustomed to eating curbside. The new wave of gourmet mobile food trucks in New York is nothing short of spectacular. As diverse and cultured as the city itself, food trucks in the big apple are breeding some of the next big chef stars. Food trucks gather in well populated areas and stick together at lots and events. At The Joyride Truck, grab delicious frozen yogurt in the summer or a hot cup of Stumptown coffee in the winter. The Red Hook Lobster Pound ships in fresh Maine lobster and takes it right to the streets while Korilla BBQ continues to innovate with contemporary Korean fusion. Of course, NY has its share of unique food truck concepts like the popular Wafels & Dinges Belgian waffle truck, the Schnitzel and Things schnitzel truck, Rickshaw Dumplings truck, and the unique flavors of the Van Leeuwen Ice Cream trucks. While much of the credit is given to LA for the gourmet food truck renaissance, New York has had gourmet street food vendors dating back before LA's first gourmet trucks hit the road. Kim Ima and The Treats Truck have been baking delicious treats since 2007.
