How do you feed thousands of Manhattan worker bees?

Food Trucks!!!  When we were last in midtown Manhattan the plan was to avoid as many restaurants as possible and eat from food trucks and carts….we almost made it.  Thing is, these trucks are here specifically for the workers who come buzzing out of the many skyscrapers in order to get a quick reasonably priced lunch before they buzz back into their concrete hives.  On the weekends these trucks disappear or at least they weren’t around midtown where we were.  I highly recommend that when in New York you give one or several of these trucks a try.  Good food and much less expensive than a touristy restaurant.

Buzz out oh you busy workers

Sustenance awaits you on wheels.

Sit on some steps to chow and chat

Then back to your hive to finish that report.

(Note: So maybe Mister Softee isn’t a food truck in the sense that the other ones are but it made me squeal with joy to see a childhood favorite again – and it is a truck.   Uncle Gussy’s is a Greek truck.)

    Just a couple weeks ago, Chicago approved 23 locations for food trucks around the City. It’s about time, too. It will be interesting to see which ones thrive and which don’t.

    I love food trucks. They can be kind of pricey so I limit myself to three when there is a food trunk sample event. Great post!

    Way cool ! I have ben wanting to try some food truck fare, but we don’t have anything like that around here…except for construction site lunch wagons. I’ve sampled many of those and they are actually quite good.
