Not the nicest weather out, but it is Friday. Fridays are tough to beat (unless you’re Saturday or Sunday).

Yay, we finally have a banh mi truck in NYC! There are at least 3 in LA, but in NYC we are only aware of a banh mi cart in the Financial District. If you don’t work downtown, you’re SOL.
The Paris Sandwich Truck is fairly new to NYC, but as we told you recently, they used to sell in Jersey city, and have 2 storefronts in Chinatown.
We love fish, and an authentic Vietnamese banh mi truck should make a decent fish banh mi sandwich, since fish is such a big part of their diet. Let’s find out.
All of the Paris Sandwich banh mis cost $8. They also had spicy shrimp, coconut curry beef, and some chicken and pork items on the menu too.
A funny thing happened on our way back from Madison Square Eats yesterday. We ran across an old, beat-up truck serving delicious frozen lemonade.
The truck is called Del’s NYC, and after a little research (thanks Gothamist), we found out these guys are HUGE in Rhode Island. According to the sign, they have been “Serving happiness in a cup since 1948″ and are currently located in Newport, RI.
On the truck was a sign called The Story, which recounts how the recipe was invented in Naples, Italy in 1840 by the current owner’s great grandfather.
We normally prefer the flavor of watermelon over lemon, but when Del’s logo is a frosted lemon, we got the hint and ordered a small frozen lemonade for $3.50. A medium is $4.25 and large is $5.00.
