OK. Left turn, today. This blog has given you uber-healthy recipes for weird concoctions like Cauliflower-Broccoli Mash, Raw Brownies, and Kale Salad. Today, we are looking at… Street meat! I never thought I would be into it until I tried the chicken truck on the corner of 62nd and Madison. Now, I am a convert.
This cart has been situated on various corners of 62nd and Madison for the last 25 years. So, Tony, is a legend. People come from all over — schools, businesses, apartments — to eat Tony’s food. Every day when I pass the line, I am always in awe of the number of people who line up for such a long time to eat street food. But let me tell you, it is so incredibly delicious and out-of-this-world, that I am hooked!
When we ventured out to try this cart, it was late in the day (no line), so we could ask embarrassing questions like “what do you sell?” etc…No menu, so we were clueless. Basically, you can get a salad with whatever meat, a platter of salad/rice/meat, a sandwich on pita, or a sandwich on a baguette. Every item looked scrumptious.
Ken got the chicken gyro. With lettuce, tomatoes, sauteed onions and peppers, hot sauce and white sauce.
I decided to get the salad instead of a sandwich. Needed my greens for the day.
So, if you are hungry and wandering around the Upper East Side, then by all means, you HAVE GOT TO GO get this street meat awesomeness. You will become hooked, like us!
Have a great weekend!
