Today’s Lunch is the fried chicken platter and zongzi from the NYC Cravings truck. (Note: Since I’m actually on the road today, this was a lunch I had recently at the NYC Cravings truck.)
I got there around 1pm. The line was about 12 people long. When it was my turn, there were no more pork chops, and there was a 5 minute wait for the fried chicken. I ordered fried chicken and zongzi, which they also call Chinese tamales. It was glutinous rice filled with pork, Chinese sausage, dried shrimp, peanuts, beans, greens and oats(?) wrapped in a bamboo leaf. It was very good and filling for $4.
The fried chicken had somewhat crispy skin and moist, tender, tasty meat. There were two pieces of leg/thigh combos with some chopped greens over rice. It was slightly salty for my taste, but well worth the wait. Next time I’ll get there earlier for the pork chops. I had the pork chops at the Vendy Awards in Sept. and they were delicious.
