Last year we told you about a new food truck with a punk rock pedigree called Marky Ramone’s Cruisin’ Kitchen. They did events on Long Island & New Jersey, but were in the city outside Marky’s gig at the Gramercy Theater in October. Thanks again to our eagle-eyed reader @CarlyFrankel for telling us about them.
We made contact with Keith Album, the truck’s chief, cook and bottle washer (that’s actually what is says on his business card), and have been following them on twitter.
Keith told me they now have a NYC mobile vending permit, and will be in the city permanently starting today.
Click through to see what they serve and where to find them. A hint: Do you like big balls?
Marky Ramone’s Cruisin Kitchen serves 4 different types of meatballs. They have (left to right) Italian (beef), Asian (pork), American (turkey) and Mexican (chorizo) meatballs. Each one has an applicable sauce and condiments.
An order is $7, and you can get it either “in a boat” or on a roll.
You may wonder what the connection is between Marky Ramone and a food truck. It turns out Brooklyn’s own Marky Ramone is also a chef, and has his own marinara sauce available online and at 10 different stores in the tri-state area. They also sell it at the truck for $7 a jar.
We tried two different lunches (whew, that’s a lot of balls!) Check back tomorrow for a NYSF First Look. One will be here, and one will be on CBS NY, who we write for as well.
