TODAY’S LUNCH: FRIED CHICKEN AND ZONGZI FROM NYC CRAVINGS TRUCK

Fried chicken and zongzi from NYC Cravings truck

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.
