I went to Macy’s Herald Square over the weekend and saw a food truck on the SE corner of 33rd and Broadway that I hadn’t noticed before called Express Power Lunch. The man who took my order said they have been there around 8 months, but I have never seen them or read about them anywhere before. I asked if they were affiliated with the XPL truck on 48th & Park, which is very well known and I reviewed a few weeks ago, or the Express Power Lunch cart downtown. They said no.
There were a varied group of people ordering, and most were ordering chicken over rice, the gold standard of street food. I’ve been having quite a bit of rice lately, so Today’s Lunch was a chicken gyro with white sauce and extra hot sauce, as well as everything but tomato. Ordering “everything” can have different meanings for different vendors – here it included lettuce, green peppers, raw onion and tomato (which I declined).
