Thanksgiving was more than 2 weeks ago, but heading out into the 27 degree weather at lunch, we were thankful the Red Hook Lobster Truck was parked near our office.
Everybody Likes Free, especially this time of year when we’re all spending so much money on gifts for our loved ones
There were 3 salads on the side, which were tasty: cucumbers, pickled daikon & carrots, and kimchi.
The stir-fried veggie wrap had broccoli, kale and quinoa. Broccoli is always enjoyable for us, and kale varied the green flavor somewhat, so it didn’t only taste like broccoli.
Two Tablespoons had 3 types of vegan chili to choose from, and they were happy to give samples of each. We asked for samples of Sweet Potato Chipotle Chile and Lentil & Ginger Stew.
The Buffalo food trucks that have grown in popularity in the last two seasons are now regular inhabitants of the Larkin Square on Tuesday evenings throughout the warmer months.
Mike ‘N’ Willies can be counted on for tasty sliders and tacos. They are also one of the few NYC food trucks serving fish tacos, which is a particular favorite of ours.
Our second favorite part of the dish was the spicy pork, which had a tiny bit of sweetness (from a mirin marinade probably) and a nice kick. It wasn’t too spicy, but just right.
This was certainly one of the healthier lunches we’ve had recently. If you ask for no sauce, there are probably only a handful of calories remaining.
If you want things spicy, there’s a bottle of sriracha and small containers to put it in by the truck’s window. We recommend putting some on the duck. The ginger scallion mayo didn’t really add much.
