Flushing Street Bao – A trip up into Queens

In the beginning it seemed like a bad day for a food hunt up into Queens. Not because it was Queens but because we arrived in the middle of a massive thunderstorm. Luckily as we walked off the Main street subway at Flushing we were able to almost instantly huddle beneath the LIRR railway bridge…

Gorilla Cheese NYC Food Truck

Walking along West Montrose towards the Wilson Red Line from the Montrose Brown Line stop in the sunshine I saw a familiar face up on the wall and it created a brief flashback to the previous weekend. King Kong had clearly headed back over to New York from Chicago, perhaps he thought that everyone had forgotten about…

Beechers – Cheese Emporium NYC

  Just between Union Square and the Flatiron building is Beechers, it is actually right next to the new location of  ‘Craft’ Tom Coliccio’s resturant, so it is in good company. It describes itself as a store and cafe and it certainly was a striking and very pleasant space to eat lunch in.   I…

Seoul Food Wagon

I chanced upon the Seoul Food Wagon in Union Square on a small trip last weekend to New York City. It was such a good looking truck I felt I had to give them a chance and sample their fare. On occasion I really despair,  I stood in the queue, or line if you like,…

Phils Steaks – NYC – Cheesesteak wit wiz

Oh my Gawd, I was just hitting food truck after food truck. I had headed down on the red line just to hit up Union Square to see if the traders at the regular farmers food market were still there. On my way from the station walking along 14th St I bumped into Phils Steaks. With a…

Real Good Truck – NYC

I am a total sucker for a food truck and even if I have just eaten I can’t pass one by, even if I just have a taste. 20 minutes earlier I was walking out from the Chelsea Market with my meat pie from “Tuck Shop” and I was heading over to Myers of Keswick…

Tuck Shop ‘the great aussie bite’ NYC

I love a good meat pie and I had read about this place on NFT (Not For Tourists) NYC so I really had to head over here for a pie. I had checked it out over the holiday season but I was on my way then to get Fish and Chips from ‘A Salt and…

Rickshaw Dumplings Food Truck – Times Square New York

Rickshaw Dumplings Food Truck – Times Square New York Rickshaw Dumpling Bar is located just on the edge of Times Square, if you surface from the Times Square subway entrance at the far south east corner to avoid the crowds you will hit this particular bar.   It is not really a food truck as…

M&M world in Times Square – Take out

Inspiration or enthusiam arrives in many strange ways. After two hours searching the remote for my UK DVD player it was finally located under the piles of menus and flyers for unwritten blog entries that I have been putting off for the last few weeks, and in that pile was the remnants of the Christmas…

CHaRLITo’s CoCINa – “Scratch Cooking and Charcuterie”

I bumped into Charlito’s Cocina at the Columbus Christmas Market on a pre-xmas shopping trip to New York. Hidden away amongst the stalls selling beads, fancy jewellery, and scented candles, Charles Wekselbaum stood with his small board of little charcuterie treats. Other market browsers passed him by, but I was straight in there. There were some…
