We were heading over to Rock Center for lunch yesterday, but a new food truck was spotted right around the corner from our office, was parked on Broadway & 56th St. The truck is named Shanghai Sogo, and they advertise themselves as serving “Asian Tapas”. The guy taking our order said it was their 1st week out.
That’s a tough order to fill, with Asian appetizers among our favorites. There are times we will order in a bunch of Chinese or Thai appetizers for dinner, and not even get a main course.
With a new truck, it’s nice being able to try several things at once, which was achieved by ordering their Meal Deal for $12. This consisted of any $6 or less item, plus a sesame sandwich with hibachi chicken, and a drink. It used to be $10 was enough to buy lunch in NYC, but now $12 seems to be the norm for anything more than 1 main dish. Guess $12 is the new $10.
They had several Asian drinks such as mango passion fruit juice and coconut juice. They also have bubble tea, which is not eligible for the Meal Deal, but they were running a “buy 1 get 1 free” on bubble tea when we were there.
