I enjoyed falafel and rice from the XPL truck on 48th & Park about a month ago and heard they have another truck on the NW corner of 52nd St & 3rd Ave. Since falafel is one of the safest foods to get from a food cart or truck, it was time to try something a little more advanced, and to see whether both XPL trucks had the same food.
Arriving at the XPL truck on 52nd & 3rd (yesterday-no rain), I noticed a few things. It was quite inexpensive, with most platters $5 and a gyro for only $3, and the platters included a soda for $5. With these prices, it was obvious why they had a line of people – but even the cheapest place won’t get repeat business if their food sucks.
