One of the long-time street vendors in midtown is Kim’s Aunt Kitchen. They are located on West 46th St just east of 6th Ave, next to Moshe’s Falafel (although Moshe’s is closed this week for Passover). You can easily spot Kim’s by the slogan “Food Is Love” on the side of their cart and on the cart”s menu. We couldn’t agree more!
One food we love is fried seafood, which Kim’s Aunt Kitchen has in spades, and at street food prices. I know what you’re thinking, that cheap seafood is not the smartest thing to get from a street cart – but in this case you would be mistaken. I have eaten Kim’s fried seafood numerous times, and they have a steady line of regulars at lunch every day. I’m not aware of any health problems, other than of the cholesterol variety.
On this visit, I got the fried shrimp platter, which includes 8 pieces for $6.50.
