A week ago Friday, we were surprised at just how many food trucks were in the 47th St & Park Ave area. There were 9 food trucks in a 1.5 block area that day.
A big scene like that can often mean trouble, so we stopped by 47th & Park on Friday to see if things were still hopping. While there were only 5 food trucks this time, there was a new vendor called the Trusty Truck with a big crowd around it.
We asked someone where the end of the line was, and were told they had sold out. What, it was only 1:10! Oh well. We took photos of the truck and the menu, and walked down the block to another vendor to buy lunch.
After buying lunch from another food truck, we walked back to the Trusty Truck to see what was happening. Everybody had cleared out, and the owner, Dominick, and chef, Giovanni, were outside the truck, so I walked up and introduced myself.
Dom and Gio said they read NYSF all the time, and were excited that I stopped by. They asked if I had a few minutes so they could make me some food. Even though they had sold out, I guess there were still a couple of things in the truck. Hell yeah, that’s what we live for!
