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.
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.
On the cemita were lettuce, tomato, mayo, cheese, beans, ancho chilies, and of course, a large portion of roast pork and onions in a spicy sauce.
This was a pretty good kasha knish, but it was kept under heat too long. The crust was somewhat crispy, which we like, but the exposed kasha on top was hard too. That’s a no-no.
The burrito did unravel a bit towards the end, so it was a good thing they included a fork with lunch. The spiciness of the sauces rose a few notches as we got towards the last few bites, but nothing too severe, and it did not overpower the rest of the burrito.
Opening the container, there were chunks of chicken in a reddish-brown sauce, with onions and bell peppers. It was served over basmati rice, with a small salad on the side.
The buffalo sauce was pretty spicy, which is to our taste. The blue cheese sauce was nice and cheesy, with chunks of actual blue cheese in the sauce.
The broth had a nice curry flavor, plus more basil flavor than we expected. This was a pleasant surprise.
